Is Need for Speed Heat Cross Platform?
Unfortunately, EA confirmed in a reply to a post on the EA Forums that Need for Speed Heat does not currently have cross platform play.
A player asked, “With all the games nowadays coming out with cross platform I think this game would be super cool and make a much better community with cross platform. Will it be implemented?”
An EA Community Manager, Ataashi, replied, “Thanks for posting your suggestion! I’m afraid at the moment we don’t have any information about possible cross-play in Need for Speed Heat.”
They also said they EA would confirm on their social channels if that ever changes, so be sure to check there.
As cross platform play continues to get more common in high profile games, it’ll become more likely that it will come to the Need for Speed series. For now though, you’ll just have to make do with playing with other people on hour platform.
No, it isn’t as of the time of writing.
