MultiVersus was announced back in November 2021 with Warner Bros. Games and developer Player First Games hoping to distinguish the game from similar games, like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, by releasing the game as free to play, with a team-based 2v2 format.

The companies also promise full cross-play support — MultiVersus is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X — and “dedicated server-based rollback netcode and content-filled seasons.”
