It Takes Two is one of the best games of recent times. Not us only, but the “Best Game of 2021” award says this too. It's a lot of fun to play the game, which is entirely designed for a co-op experience, with your close friends/lovers. So let's answer the critical question: is It Takes Two cross-platform?

It Takes Two was released in 2021, following the success of A Way Out. The game was developed by Hazelight Studios and offers a great experience. Especially with its story and gameplay.

Since this great experience focuses on couch co-op, it's a bit disappointing in terms of cross-platform support.

Let's talk about everything we know about It Takes Two cross-platform support.

It Takes Two cross-platform support

It Takes Two is playable on many platforms. You can enjoy this incredible experience on PC, Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

The game isn't available on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. But that shouldn't be a problem because these platforms' co-op experience isn't that good.

It Takes Two cross-platform on PC

The PC version of It Takes Two doesn't provide cross-platform support for other platforms on which the game is available. In other words: If you're a PC player, the other player must also be a PC player.

Technically, it shouldn't be challenging to provide this support, but the developers have made a conscious decision here. After all, the game's main goal is to provide a couch co-op experience.

It Takes Two cross-platform on Playstation

As on PC, the Playstation version of It Takes Two has no cross-platform support. The person you want to play this strange love story with must own a PS4 or PS5, just like you.

The good news is that the game does have cross-gen support. So two players, one with PS4 and one with PS5, can play It Takes Two together.

Since the game also has couch/local co-op support, two players can play together on the same console. This is also the best way to experience the game.

It Takes Two cross-platform on Xbox

It's great that It Takes Two isn't exclusive to a console. However, the Xbox version of the game doesn't offer the same cross-platform support as the other versions. If you want to play the game on Xbox, the person you're playing with must also have an Xbox.

The Xbox version of It Takes Two does offer cross-gen support. This allows players with Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S to share this fun experience.

Likewise, couch/local co-op support is available on all Xbox consoles.
