Rainbow Six Siege Crossplay and Cross-progression: How does it work

Rainbow Six Siege Y7S4 Operation Solar Raid has been officially announced, and the new season is set to introduce the highly anticipated features of crossplay and cross-progression.

Ubisoft is finally introducing crossplay and cross-progression to Rainbow Six Siege. But you might be wondering whether PC and console players will be able to play together now. The answer is still no.

Rainbow Six Siege: PC and Console Crossplay available?

With Y7S4, Ubisoft has announced crossplay for Siege, but it will only be for console players, meaning Playstation users will now be able to with Xbox users. On the other hand, PC players will be able to a match-make with cloud gaming users.

But that’s not all, as Ubisoft is also bringing cross-progression to the game that will finally allow users to transfer all their belongings from one platform to another. So if you already play Siege on a console, you can now shift to a PC and use your existing Ubisoft Connect account to transfer your renown, skins, and more.
