The Absence of a Feature in Fallout 76 is Frustrating the Head of Xbox

When Fallout 76 was first released in 2018, it faced a wave of criticism for its bugs and lackluster gameplay. Fast forward a couple of years, and the game has undergone significant improvements, becoming a hidden gem among the gaming community.

However, one major drawback of Fallout 76 is the absence of crossplay features. Despite being a multiplayer title available on multiple platforms, players are unable to enjoy cross-progression, cross-save, or any other form of cross-platform functionality.

The frustration around this issue has even caught the attention of Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox. In an interview with Polygon, Spencer expressed his dismay over the lack of cross-save in Fallout 76:

"Are all of my games there? Do all my games show up with the save files that I want? I'll tell you one game that doesn't right now - it's driving me crazy - is Fallout 76. It doesn't have cross-save."

This means that players transitioning between different platforms risk losing their progress in Fallout 76, hindering the overall gaming experience. The absence of crossplay features in a game with such a vast and immersive world like Fallout 76 seems like a major oversight.

Implementing crossplay may not be a simple task, but it holds immense potential to unite the Fallout 76 community and break down the barriers between platforms. Imagine seamlessly exploring the wasteland with your friends, regardless of the device they are playing on.
