Baldur's Gate 3: Is It Crossplatform?

With Baldur's Gate 3 coming up, and being a game that you can play with friends, can you play it across platforms with friends?
Baldur's Gate 3: Is It Crossplatform?

Baldur's Gate 3 launches early next month, after three full years in Early Access, and with that finally comes the console release of the game a month later. However, with the game being one that you can play online with your friends throughout the entire campaign, fans are wondering whether the game is cross-platform.

Can you play Baldur's Gate 3 with your friends cross-platform?

No. Once Baldur's Gate 3 launches on PlayStation in September you won't be able to play with your friends on PC. However, Larian has hinted multiple times at the potential for the game to get cross-platform multiplayer further down the line, but it won't be something that's available at launch for players. Larian is likely focused on making sure that the game actually works to the extent that they want it to work, and with a game as densely packed as Baldur's Gate 3, that's no easy task. 

There's a huge addendum to this suggestion though, and that's the fact the game won't be launching on Xbox at the same time it launches on PlayStation. According to Larian Studio, various difficulties came up during development specifically related to the Xbox Series S and the fact that Microsoft requires games released on both of their systems to have the exact same capabilities when it comes to the actual game. 

The game DOES have cross-platform progression, however, meaning that if you own the game on two separate platforms you can continue your save regardless of what you last played the game on.
