Microsoft Hoping For Fortnite Cross-Platform Play Between PS4 & Xbox One

Microsoft Hoping For Fortnite Cross-Platform Play Between PS4 & Xbox One

Epic Games has confirmed that soon you'll be able to play Fortnite with players on any other format... except the PlayStation 4. Microsoft has openly pushed for PS4 and Xbox players on one server but Sony has been reluctant saying that it was something that was "a commercial discussion between ourselves and our stakeholders".

"Fortnite" will soon be getting cross-platform support for the Xbox One allowing cross-play with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android players. We have worked with them over the past few months to make this possible and we will provide this functionality to the Fornite players on Xbox along with other platforms. It is unclear when this will happen (if at all), but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more updates. This was further solidified when Epic Games announced that the PS4 version of "Fortnite" will also feature cross-play with PC, Mac, Android, and iOS devices.

It does look like the cross-platform play could arrive for games like Fortnite, Minecraft, Rocket League, or any number of multiplayer games already released or yet to arrive - but only when Sony gives the go ahead. This was kind of a bummer considering Xbox has always been the console frontman for pushing cross-play incentives - it was always Sony that wasn't ready to play ball. While Mac is still considered to be PC and iOS mobile, there's no doubt here that even Apple, Microsoft's biggest competitor, is willing to do cross-platform play with its rivals. In addition to the having the full experience, the developer also revealed that the mobile versions of the game will also feature cross-platform support with the Xbox One, Mac, PC, and PS4.
