Throughout the post, Molly says that throughout 2019 Hi-Rez Studios' main focus will be bringing polish to Paladins, and issuing out a stable proper cross-platform experience. "It's been so exciting to pioneer cross-progression and cross-play, and we've made amazing progress so far. We're so excited to get this feature live and out to as many players as possible, but we don't want to rush it. In 2019, we're more focused on polish than ever before. We want to do it right, not do it quick, and we're going to need a little more time to properly execute this massive leap forward."

The blog post details what features will be coming with update version 2.02, they are listed in dot points within the entirety of this post. The update is expected to be arriving on the Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. It should also be noted that the developers are planning on cross-progression between PC and Xbox within this update as well. "We expect cross-play across Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch to release with all of these features in Update 2.02. We're also targeting a 2.02 release for cross-progression across PC and Xbox."

"We want to make sure that we're able to introduce features that you've requested and will make cross-play the best experience it can be, including:"

  • Voice chat for every player on your team, regardless of platform
  • Matchmaking by input type, regardless of platform
  • Keyboard and mouse support for Xbox
