Suggested by Microsoft that Fortnite PS4’s vx Xbox One cross play could happen
2016 saw Microsoft first announce their support for cross-platform play but this hasn’t happened due to Sony resisting PS4 vs Xbox One gaming. However, it has been recently announced by Epic Games that Fortnite will support cross-play and cross-progression between the Playstation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and also in the future, Android versions of the game.
It was a surprise to see Xbox One weren’t included in the list but Microsoft have since confirmed that its working with Epic Games to enable this at some point in the future.
They quoted “We have been working closely with the team at Epic Games for some time to bring this functionality to all current and future versions of Fortnite and expect it to be available on Xbox along with other platforms,” and added “Microsoft has long been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of cross-platform play and the potential of connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles.”
Great news is that there will some form of cross-play between Xbox One and PS4.
