Though the partnership with Epic allows to cross-play between PS4, PC, and Mobile it is not possible to cross-play with Xbox One.

In the past, Sony has expressed a lack of enthusiasm for cross-play between the Xbox and the PlayStation, most famously for "Rocket League". Want involved? Click the link below!

This weekend Epic Games announced that Xbox cross-platform, cross-purchase play would be supported with cross-platform play between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and later Android.

Fortnite memes have shown us the obsessive players and the angry non-gaming significant others because their relationship is being ruined.

It's only implied that Sony is the one vetoing PS4 and Xbox One crossplay, but it's clear enough for us. And since the PS4 is now outselling Xbox One, disabling the function will only help sustain the present sales figures. There has been word of recent, for example, that Xbox One users will not be able to play against PS4 users, but with both able to go up against their PC and mobile counterparts. The super popular battle royale game will be coming to iOS first.




While there aren't now plans for cross-play functionality between PS4 and Xbox One, Xbox head Phil Spencer said he'd like to see cross-play between the two consoles.

The biggest question surrounding Fortnite's mobile port is "how will it play?"

But as of late, Sony has been enabling cross-play between PS4 and millions of PC and mobile gamers, so their previous excuses for "protecting kids" doesn't hold anymore. The company is once again blocking cross-play functionality and this is becoming a common trend that is hurting the overall gaming community and more importantly, limiting the future of gaming.

The game has amassed millions upon millions of players, stream views, and several highly-intensive, professional competitions. Sign-ups for the iOS version actually began today and reports say there were so many people attempting to sign up that the site crashed briefly.
