Earlier this week EA announced that FIFA 14 will support cross-gen play in Ultimate Team, but sadly the same thing won’t happen in DICE’s Battlefield 4.
DICE confirmed that every version of Battlefield 4 will have its own separate career, meaning that players can’t carry over their kills and rank from current-gen versions of the game to next-gen. All versions of the game will also be hosted on separate servers, so current-gen players can’t go toe-to-toe with users on next-gen systems.
@mrlflamingo No. Each platform is treated like a separate career, similar to how it works in Battlefield 3.
