Its very improbable, saying. I am not saying we all know for cheap PSO2 Meseta sure it WON'T occur but when you consider that: the recent NA version already has evaluations. Past Phantasy Star games had NA and EU discuss servers. Well simply making the recent NA version a international variant seems possible as well as more likely.
Yeah, PSOBB on PC and Phantasy Star Universe had servers shared for international players (SEGA of Japan created the Japanese version of PSU's Xbox 360 version link to the global servers). The reasoning was most likely SEGA's need to be able to handle their own JP version without having to be concerned about the Western market. The couple of times they talked about this they cited being able to deliver place exclusive upgrades after all... in PSO2's situation, they didnt need to be paying global rights to collab nor to consider if collabs with certain companies like Dawson or some obscure anime could be relevant to this Western players to justify the cost of global rights. The Japanese version is wanted by SEGA that which might appeal to them and for its own thing targeted at the market.
Any ideas if the"other PC platforms" will also crossplay? I understand Steam has had while others older MMOs they had didn't, some MMOs that had Steam-only servers. PSO2 is a game that is based around platform much in precisely the exact same way as FFXIV. A Steam launch would probs still be cross platform as Steam is only employed as a distribution platform for Phantasy Star Online 2 launcher and customer... and similar to Halo and Sea of Thieves have a Microsoft account login as thats the replacement for the SEGA ID system. Steam has.
I can't see it arriving to ones such as GOG Galaxy, Itch.io, Bethesda Launcher, Battlenet or the Nexon Launcher (though GOG Galaxy and Ich.io for different reasons from the rest of course, these two are far more indy-oriented while the other three are overly proprietary-focused and less well-known for being storefronts as much as they're the way you play with Phantasy Star Online 2s from these publishers). Maybe Twitch program and the Discord Store? (those are worse than Epic and Origin, therefore I have doubts (the Discord Store is even dead, makes me wonder if they are still selling games in the Twitch program )). What else is there?
Assuming the scenario that is extremely unlikely the EU version is not server and a distinct client. I don't understand why not? How these things work. It would only be the NA version, we'll be blessed if they give us EU-hosted ships as a substitute or other languages (contrary to popular theory, a game does not have to be localized to all European languages to launch there, many Sega games including Yakuza are available only in English and Japanese all over the globe ). In Terms of Steam. PSO2 has substituted the SEGA ID system for Microsoft accounts. Microsoft has been wanting to enlarge Xbox Live to other platforms such as Alter and PS4 for games. This is the case with Cupheads on Switch in addition to pso2 sales the platforms that Minecraft is on.
