Fortnite announces cross-platform play sans Xbox One and PS4

Epic games is adding cross play support for its genre crossing battle royale, survival game.

In a new blog post, Epic has praised Microsoft for being a "leading voice" in supporting cross-platform play and "connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles".

Fortnite Mobile sign-ups will begin later today on iOS phones and tablets.

"We have been working closely with the team at Epic Games for some time to bring this functionality to all current and future versions of Fortnite and expect it to be available on Xbox along with other platforms", says a Microsoft spokesperson. "Microsoft has always been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of multiplatform games and the potential to connect players through PCs, mobile devices and all consoles".

Multi-platform play has been the go to for many game franchises, and has worked out fine. Unfortunately, Sony remained stern with its reluctance to allow cross-play with the PlayStation 4 as it previously did with "Rocket League" and "Minecraft".

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

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

Both Microsoft and Epic Games want to do cross-play on the PS4 for Fortnite, but it doesn't look like Sony are going to play ball. According to the developer, the next few months will see cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS arrive to the game. Microsoft and Nintendo have shown openness when it comes to the feature, but Sony still has yet to give its approval.
