Plants vs Zombies Battle for neighborville crossplay?
In an interview, Shaun Laker, Live Producer for Plants vs Zombies stated that enabling crossplay in Battle for neighborville is not as simple as it may look, the game would require a lot more big technology updates to support it, and they were at that moment simply focusing on improving the quality of gameplay rather than focusing on an aspect such as cross-play and cross-progression.
This interview was sometime in November of 2019, where Shaun had also stated that enabling cross-play in the future is a possibility.
Though since then, there has been no official information provided by EA or PopCap Games, this leads us to believe that Cross-play is still not being worked on because if it was then some form of information would’ve been provided.
This is quite unfortunate news as many players were looking forward for cross-play support since other EA games have been receiving it.
For now, all we can do is wait and be hopeful that they will begin working on it, knowing it is something that players really want from the game.
