Killer Instinct will support Windows to Xbox Cross-play when it releases on Steam

 
Iron Galaxy's community manager, Rukari Austin, has confirmed that the Steam version of Killer Instinct will support cross-play with both the Windows 10 Store and Xbox One versions of the game. 
 
In the past, Steam to Windows 10 Store cross-platform multiplayer has proven difficult, with games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare releasing on both platforms with segregated multiplayer communities, leaving the Windows 10 version in a position where multiplayer was dead on arrival given its minimal portion of the PC playerbase. 
 
Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come, with Windows 10 to Steam Crossplay becoming more popular moving forward on Windows 10 Store releases. 
 
 


Yes, this is your confirmation that Killer Instinct players on Xbox One or Windows 10 will be able to play cross-network with players on Steam, as well, and we’re super excited to be able to bring that feature to you when KI launches on Steam in the coming weeks.

There is one small caveat, though. We will be testing this feature, making sure all the kinks are worked out (as best as we can) in a live environment. What that means for you is that you will see the option for cross play in your menus, but then there will be times where that menu item is turned off, and seemingly missing. Never fear, that is simply us working on things in the background, and your experience will not be affected as we do our work.
