How to enable cross-progression between generations and platforms

Cloud save

How does it work?

  1. Security and tampering — while you can roll out your own encryption mechanism, local save games are prone to client side tampering; which means you cannot really store important multiplayer data such as power level, ELO rating and premium currency in local save.
  2. Most (if not all) platforms handle cloud save per Title ID/App ID. That means that if you release a sequel to your game, that’s considered to be a separate game, which means that it will have a separate Title ID/App ID. And since one game cannot query and manage the cloud save of another game, your two games will not be able to share game progressions.
