Transfer Progress from connected Xbox One account to PC?

★★ Newbie

Is there any possible way to transfer any progress from my Xbox One to my PC for Apex Legends as of 8/21/2019? I'm asking for myself and several others. Because spending time and money into the same game on one platform, and not be able to move any information over to the other is a load of crap. Especially for a free game like Apex Legends. I also went through a boat-load of trouble trying to get my Xbox One Microsoft account connected to the correct EA account as well, just to find out that nothing moves over. Is there any way?

@MounTmikeY Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there isn't any form of cross-progression, your accounts on PC and console will be totally separate, and there isn't a way to transfer.

I think that there's a point in not moving game stats (kills, achievements...) across platforms, since it could argued that different platforms are not the same (e.g.: you could be more precise with a PC mouse than using a console gamepad, so it could bet "not fair" just to move them from one platform to another).

However, purchased items are a different story... @EA_David , do you know if this is under discussion or decision is already made?

@Fr3dY2 Sorry, there's an interview from a while back that states that cross-progression isn't going to be an option in future. 

 

"Cross-progress and cross-purchases, however, will never be possible in Apex Legends, "due to the way systems were set up early on" which "can't [be] reconciled after the fact"."

Wow, EA & Respawn are just full of excuses. Basically... tough s**t?!

 

So all the progress & items i unlocked whilst grinding on PS4 won't be able to cross over to PC? What a complete waste of time & money. It's 2020 but all we get is excuses. Strange how other dev companies can get cross-progression working, yet EA, one of the biggest & supposed best, cannot. Wow, okay.

 

Amazing. Amazingly pathetic.

 

But hey, i guess you already got my money so why would anyone care @EA @Respawn ?! lmao just like no one cares that the entire continent of AFRICA has ZERO servers.

 

I suppose i have no right to complain or say anything though... it's a "free game." lmao okay

 

 

Please, indulge me with your generic copy-pasted replies EA....
