Since last year, we have seen reports of upcoming action title Tekken 7 might get a cross-platform play support across other platforms. Unfortunately, that is not going to happen as Bandai Namco confirmed that it is a 1st party issue and platform security policy issue.

While answering one of the followers regarding the Tekken 7 cross-play feature, Bandai Namco’s Australian Twitter account confirmed that there won’t be a cross-platform play feature for the game. Here’s the official response.

Not many gamers are happy with the decision. Another follower mentioned the producer of Tekken 7,  Katsuhiro Harada and asked him to change his mind with that decision. Harada responded that he also wanted to implement the feature but it’s something not under his control. He thinks that the issue is with either Microsoft or Sony and they might don’t want it for some platform security concerns.

He also highlighted that the Street Fighter V and Killer Instinct are console exclusives so implementing cross-play is possible. And the cross-play possibility lies on a game being either PS4 and PC compatible or Xbox One and PC compatible, which will result in splitting the PC version of the game (which won’t be done). He further wrote “Don’t ask me again” and request the first party, i.e., Microsoft and Sony.

Last year, Microsoft sent invitation to the Sony, requesting for cross-platform play between PC, PS4 and Xbox One among the famous titles. However, it appears that Sony is not ready to approve the feature possible for some of its policy concerns. The cross-play between Xbox One and PC is now live, with the Rocket League and Gears of War 4.

Tekken 7 is scheduled for release on June 2nd for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
