Microsoft Hoping For Fortnite Cross-Platform Play Between PS4 & Xbox One

The Xbox One is still a console and built with the same x86 architecture like the PS4, there shouldn't be any technical differences that would prevent both systems from cross-play.

In what could be seen as a subtle dig at Sony, the post also states "Contrary to what may have been implied, Microsoft has always been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles".

Microsoft doesn't specifically confirm Fortnite players will be able to cross-play between Xbox One and PS4, but it's clear there's going to be some cross-play support involving Xbox and other platforms.

Xbox One players can play with PC, Mac, and mobile.

Last week, Epic Games announced that the hit base-building battle royale title will be making its way to mobile devices. In a surprise announcement yesterday, Epic Games revealed Fortnite will support cross-play and cross-progression between the PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and eventually the Android versions of the game. Microsoft has openly pushed for PS4 and Xbox players on one server but Sony has been reluctant saying that it was something that was "a commercial discussion between ourselves and our stakeholders".

Still, Microsoft has stated that they are working closely with Epic Games to enable the feature sometime in the future.

It does look like the cross-platform play could arrive for games like Fortnite, Minecraft, Rocket League, or any number of multiplayer games already released or yet to arrive - but only when Sony gives the go ahead.

Sign-ups for the "Fortnite" Battle Royale Mode is now available for iOS users.
