I played previous Gears on Xbox, for Gears 5 I want to main on PC. I know crossplay feature is there, merging PC and Console players, but I think most console players will opt out for ranked play, resulting in a lower player base on PC. In addition, if I want to join my console friends WITHOUT forcing them into crossplay, it’s impossible.
It would be nice that crossplay would be INPUT base instead of PLATFORM base. After you press start screen, you
would be locked into the input you used to enter the game for example(to avoid switching mid game)
It would give the opportunity for PC players(the lower player base) to join the console only players by playing with a controller on PC AND put console KB/M players VS KB/M players on either console or PC.
What do you think about this?
