Epic Accidentally Let PS4 And Xbox One Players Battle Together On Fortnite

Share

The debate is finally laid to rest when reddit user /u/PyroBlack76 posted a photo of a PS4 playing with an Xbox One side-by-side. As confirmed by Eurogamer, Epic Games has stated that the cross-network play in Fortnite was simply an error.

Intrigued by his discovery, PRE_-CISION-_ switched over to his Xbox One and did some digging, quickly discovering a user with the same name on Xbox Live, as well as a teammate that zCypher had been playing with. Over Reddit private messages, he told me, "I noticed the gamer tag of this dude had a space in it, which was weird". I'd be all in for system exclusive games if multi-platform titles had cross-network features. He booted up his Xbox One and typed it in there, "for the hell of it", he said.

If you still don't believe this and are thinking the other player is on PC, then know that Fortnite doesn't utilize Xbox Live for PC multiplayer. PROOF of cross platform play between XB1 and PS4! It was a charming picture, but raised a lot of questions among the community-why wasn't this great feature announced? "We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected", a representative told the website via email. It looks like these brief glimpses of the big, lovely world of cross-console play were total accidents.

The firm has "Underweight" rating given on Tuesday, April 19 by JP Morgan. (NYSE:DG) to report earnings on December, 7. Pacific Crest reaffirmed a "hold" rating on shares of Tesla Motors in a research report on Thursday, October 27th.

With cross-platform play between the two consoles being so easy to implement that a developer manages to enable it it accidentally, hopefully, Microsoft and Sony will manage to negotiate a way for the feature to come to fruition in an official manner. Sony and Microsoft are also being quiet on the subject.

As evidence mounted, another example of an Xbox gamertag in a PS4 game popped up.
