Cross-play Accidentally Hits Fortnight

We first heard Microsoft announce support for cross-platform play at E3 in 2016, but Sony has been hesitant to enable it due to internal reasons that they weren’t open to share. Its been now reported that Fortnite has been quietly updated to support cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4 players in the previous week. a Spokesperson confirmed that this was an unintended mistake that has since been fixed by them.

Earlier in the year there were numerous discussions about the whole cross play conundrum but Sony simply refused to play ball, it is believed that cross play simply has to be “turned on” by them to get the glimmering prospect active across the world in its entirety. The reasoning behind Sony’s lackluster point of view isn’t exactly clear but it may come down to numerous possibilities the simplest being sales numbers.

Whatever becomes of this story in the coming months one thing is clear, the technology is there! We sincerely hope Sony sees the light on this matter because it could lead to great things for console gamers!
