In partnership with Sony, Fortnite Battle Royale will support Cross-Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android.

Sony hasn't commented on the move, and it's unclear whether there's more to the lack of cross-play than what Microsoft says.

Even with Fortnite, the capability for Xbox One and PS4 gamers to play side-by-side is possible, as witnessed by a "configuration issue" that allowed gamers from each respective camp to play against one another for a brief period of time a year ago before it was shutdown.

Sony hasn't made any official statement, but this is also not the first time that PS4 and Xbox One cross-play features were denied. Microsoft, on the other hand, has a massive advantage to support cross-platform play, something that the company is already doing with the Switch and PC gamers. Apparently, Sony, the owner of all things PS4, is quite reluctant to allow cross-play with Xbox One due to some questionable "security reasons" they claim to be a hindrance for the cross-play between the two console platforms. "For any other questions regarding Fortnite cross-network play between Xbox and PlayStation, please reach out to Epic or Sony directly".

Q: When can I play Fortnite Battle Royale on my iOS device? But Epic Games also revealed over the weekend that Xbox One players will not be able to play against PS4 players and vice versa. According to The Verge, which earlier reported on those omissions, Sony at the time said that it didn't allow for cross-play to protect children, stating that cross-play exposes kids to "external influences we have no ability to manage or look after".

Sony hasn't stated publicly why they won't enable this functionality but one thing is clear, it's hurting the overall gaming community and putting PS4 players at an unnecessary disadvantage. The same game on all platforms. Epic Games opened its sign-up page for mobile devices on Monday, and the site went down nearly immediately because of all the extra traffic. Further, they assured that everything would be the same from gameplay to content and weekly updates.
