Unfortunately, DayZ doesn’t support crossplay. This means that you are restricted to playing with other players on the same platform as you. You cannot play with players from other devices or consoles, even if they are from the same family, such as PS4 and PS5 or Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Crossplay for DayZ has been a long-standing request from many fans, but the developers have not expressed any intention to add this feature in the near future. Therefore, you have no choice but to play on the same platform as your friends if you want to enjoy DayZ together.

DayZ also lacks cross-progression support. This means that you cannot carry over or sync your progress across different platforms or consoles. You will have to start over if you switch devices. And similar to crossplay, the developers have shown no sign of adding cross-progression to the game in the future either.
