Microsoft announced support for Xbox One crossplay at the E3 gaming convention last year. Sony hasn’t really been open to the idea so Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners aren’t able to play each other online. It appears to be a different story for Epic’s co-op survival game Fortnite. The title has been updated quietly to enable Xbox One and PS4 players to crossplay.

Sony hasn’t really been receptive to the crossplay idea even Microsoft started talking about it last year. It decided against enabling crossplay for both Minecraft and Rocket League even though Microsoft and Nintendo are supporting it across PC, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.

There’s no clarity about this right now. Neither Microsoft nor Sony have confirmed that they’re supporting this. It’s quite possible that this might have been the result of a temporary glitch.

Reddit users have spotted that it’s possible for Fortnite players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to play against each other online. However, there’s no statement as yet from Sony or even Epic Games for that matter to confirm that crossplay has been enabled officially.

Hopefully, there will be more clarity about this in the near future. Gamers would certainly want to know if this can be expected from additional titles down the line.
