Smite 2 will bring with it an Unreal Engine 5-powered upgrade, and promises full cross-play and cross-progression. 

Smite 2’s developers say that the move from Smite’s Unreal Engine 3 to Epic Games 

itan Forge and Hi Rez are also promising gameplay improvements, including an updated user interface and better matchmaking. 

Smite 2 will be built with multiple control schemes in mind from the start 

“There are currently over 1,600 skins in Smite, excluding Mastery skins” 

To just port every skin to Smite 2 would take about 246 person-years of work. 

Smite 2 will be playable on PlayStation 5, SteamDeck, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X. 

The original Smite launched on PC in 2014, and has since been ported to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
