Following the launch of a Fortnite cross-play beta program back in September 2018, cross-play has exited beta and is now open to all developers, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced.
Since September 2018, games such as Rocket League, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Dauntless, Paladins, Smite, and Realm Royale have enabled cross-play on PlayStation 4, allowing PlayStation 4 owners to play against users on other platforms like Xbox One and Switch.
The news comes via a Wired story focused on the recently announced PlayStation Now price drop. It states, “While it’s not announcing the news explicitly, the PS4’s cross-play efforts have officially moved out of the beta stage, meaning that the console can support cross-play on any titles that studios provide the functionality for.”
In the same article, Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said, “The track record of the incumbent platform winning the next time around is not a great one. So the major thrust of my executive energy is to avoid complacency.”
