Xbox gamers now playing against PS4 player in Fortnite


Microsoft first announced support for cross-platform play at E3 last year but Sonny has been delaying the feature.


Eurogamer report that Reddit have observed that Epic's co-op survival game, FORTNITE, has been secretly updated to support cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4 players.

It’s not clear if Microsoft and Sony have officially enabled the feature or whether it’s a temporary bug.

Earlier this year,  Sony refused to enable cross-platform play for both Rocket League and Minecraft, despite Microsoft and Nintendo both supporting it across Xbox One, PC, and Switch. Rocket League developer Psyonix previously said the game would support PS4 cross-platform play in “less than an hour all over the world” if Sony removed its blocks.

Sony hasn’t shown any interest in enabling this key feature, and disabling it simply encourages friend groups to buy a PS4 if they want to play with their friends.

Microsoft has been pushing cross-platform play at a time when it’s struggling to compete with Sony’s strong PS4 sales.

If this development isn’t just a malfunction, then Fortnite is the first game to officially support cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4.

If it’s a glitch then it demonstrates just how easy it is for PS4 players to play against Xbox gamers.
