A short while ago, we reported that Fortnite was getting full crossplay between PlayStation 4, PC and mobile devices. Today, Epic Games confirmed that Fortnite would also be getting crossplay between Xbox, PC and mobile devices. Despite this good news however, Xbox vs PlayStation crossplay still isn’t happening, despite Microsoft affirming they are on board for it.
Here’s the statement on Fortnite Xbox Crossplay:
Hey Fortnite Community,
We’re happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android.
Contrary to what may have been implied, Microsoft has long been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles. 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.
With each new platform we support and every update we ship, we strive to bring Fortnite to more people, and make it easier to play together with friends. And, as always, cross-play is opt in.
So, if any Xbox players were feeling left out, worry not, as you’ll be playing with your friends on non-PlayStation devices as well. At this point, all that remains is Xbox vs PlayStation crossplay, something I believe the fans would truly appreciate. We’ll have to see what happens in the near future.
