    Hello Unity!

    You guys have made a amazing demo! I can not wait to try it out, and learn from it!!

    Is having a 4 player splitscreen multiplayer (with other pcs) on the roadmap? What I mean is like in Minecraft or Mariokart, or even Halo you can play up to 16 people, with 4 players per console, will this new networking solution you guys are building be able to sustain that?

    I have been researching this topic high and low, and so far I only see AAA studios having this feature, how could this be added in so it can enhance not only this demo, but networking in Unity?

    Thank you,
    Xalo

    I would really love this, but it is not something we have on the roadmap. We have a lot of stuff on the network side we want to improve first - but it would be really interresting to try to tackle world replication and relevansy stuff in a splitscreen setting.
    We will keep it in mind when moving forward, but it is not something we are actively trying to achieve
