    Support is activated on a per game basis by the developer. Here's what they said a few weeks ago...

    https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2018/11/14/november-2018-xbox-update-available-now/

    Multiplayer games will be able to separate players based on their input device.

    More details from Xbox Support...

    it better does, because the price is very steep, but it always depends on the game.

    You can use any keyboard and mouse you want. You don't need the razer one.

    this one has dynamic Xbox lighting and a Xbox button though.

    No Black Desert Online? :p For shame.

    Wonder if they've reached out to the various MMO devs, though it's probably not attractive to mandate Gold subs with F2P (those applicable). ahem.

    Cross play between pc/xbox players? that would be awesome, more populated servers in future titles.

    Sea of Thieves has had PC/Xbox crossplay since launch. There's also no way of segregating them. And most of the time you can't tell who's who either.

    No idea what see of thieves is, but dont KB/M players have a massive advantage? For fps games there should be seperate servers imo. How about a game that runs 30 or 60 fps on xbox but double that on pc? Yes i know on pc theres those differences too, but with console your having the controller aspect + framerates, and eventually wider FOV.

    There's maybe only an advantage with the sniper rifle, but otherwise the guns have the range of a shotput, and the cannons rely more on lag & anticipating shot trajectory anyway (IME).

    But I'm going to comment on it anyway. ;)

    It's a first-person action game where you play as pirates in a team. There's PvP and PvE in the same game - you steal treasure, then other pirates attack your ship and steal it off you. It's not a high-speed twitch shooter. I wonder if it was designed particularly to not be disadvantageous in PC + console cross play?

    They are fixing it now, the advantage of PC will be lessened after the next major patch.
