Fortnite announces cross-platform play sans Xbox One and PS4

Looks like PS4 vs. Xbox One cross-play on Fornite isn’t happening after all

'Contrary to what may have been implied, Microsoft has always been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles.

Unfortunately, Xbox One was woefully left off the list of platforms supporting cross-play functionality.

Through its official website, Epic has announced that Fornite Battle Royale will be available for mobile devices and tablets, retaining the same elements: same map, same content, same weekly updates and, of course, games to 100 players.

Are you excited for this change? 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". 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. However, despite all the solutions that the company is offering, there's still one that hasn't been made - PlayStation 4 owners won't be able to play with Xbox One owners.

Multi-platform play has been the go to for many game franchises, and has worked out fine. Mobile devices coming soon. That is why he has announced that he is working on a new feature for the Xbox One version that will allow cross-play with other versions. According to the developer, the next few months will see cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS arrive to the game.

PlayStation 4 players can play with PC, Mac, and mobile.

Still, Microsoft has stated that they are working closely with Epic Games to enable the feature sometime in the future.
