EA’s Star Wars: Squadrons will also be available to play on PS5 and the Xbox Series X when the consoles are finally available on the shelves.
One of the creative directors behind Star Wars: Squadrons has revealed the game will be available to play on PS5 on Xbox Series X when it arrives this October. Ian S. Frazier recently posted a video discussing the game in-depth and answering some of the most important questions fans had about Squadrons. He was asked on twitter about the possibility of playing the game on PS5 since one fan was concerned about preordering the game but wanted to get the new console when it launches later this year.
The creative director explained on Twitter that although EA isn’t planning to develop a next-gen version of the game for PS5 or Xbox Series X, the backwards compatibility of the new consoles will allow players to still hurtle through the galaxy in Star Wars: Squadrons. Frazier didn’t offer an explanation behind the decision or discuss why they didn’t make the game exclusive to Ps5 or Xbox Series X, but at least fans can be safe in the knowledge that regardless which modern console they have they’ll be able to play Squadrons.
We're not planning a separate version of the game for the next-gen consoles, but yes, the backwards compatibility should work.
