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

Looks like PS4 vs. Xbox One cross-play on Fornite isn’t happening after all Xbox One Fortnite: Battle Royale Will Support Cross-Play Between PC, Mac, iOS and Android

It looks like the ball is in Sony's court when it comes to cross-platform play in Fortnite between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. 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.

Epic Games announced their partnership with Microsoft in a recent post on their website.

Earlier this week, Epic Games announced cross-play and cross-progression between the PlayStation 4, Mac, iOS, and eventually the Android when it's released.

The pair of announcements detailed cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4, Mobile, and PC. 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".

They are definitely good news, and they seem to be more in line with Microsoft's positive stance on cross-play functionality in their video games. Same fornite experience, same map, same content, just on the go.

Delhi Court Extends Karti Chidamabaram's CBI Custody For Fourth Time
Bhaskararaman was last questioned by CBI in August 2017 when agency interrogated directors of ASCPL. The CBI's plea for extension of his custody is listed before Patiala House later in the day.

In a happy incident back in September previous year, a bug in the game caused players from Xbox One and PS4 play together.

Thinking precisely in the latter, Epic Games wants to eliminate all possible barriers and offer the best facilities to the users to enjoy their title. This was promptly shut down by developers Epic who said it was a mistake.

Fortnite is out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

"We've been working together with them over the last several months to make this possible, and will bring this functionality to "Fortnite" players on Xbox right along with other platforms," the development team wrote. Microsoft has been a leading voice for a long time in support of multiplatform games, connecting players with PC, mobile and all consoles.
