Microsoft And Epic Games Work Together To Push Cross-Platform Play Further


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

Fortnite Battle Royale is free across all platforms and it's coming to iOS and Android soon.

'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. "We have been working closely with the team at Epic Games for a while to bring this functionality to all current and future versions of Fortnite and hope it will be available on Xbox along with another platform", Microsoft said in a statement to The Verge.

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

It's Selection Sunday and the committee has spoken! No player on Tennessee's roster has ever played in the NCAA Tournament . Purifoy and Wiley were ruled out due to eligibility concerns on November 2 and have not appeared in a game this season.

Sadly, there was no mention of Xbox One - PS4 cross-play suggesting that Sony is still maintaining its stance against cross-play between the two platforms.

The content and the novelties of "Fornite" do not seem to have limits since it implemented its successful Battle Royale mode.

Last week, Epic Games announced that the hit base-building battle royale title will be making its way to mobile devices. The blog reads, "On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac".

In a happy incident back in September past year, a bug in the game caused players from Xbox One and PS4 play together. While Mac is still considered to be PC and iOS mobile, there's no doubt here that even Apple, Microsoft's biggest competitor, is willing to do cross-platform play with its rivals.
