Both the Xbox One and PS4 will support cross play with Fortnite as announced by Epic Games. However, both platforms are only going to have cross play for mobile devices, Mac and PC platforms. It still won’t allow us to have PS4 vs Xbox One matches in Fortnite.
Epic Games announced today on the Fortnite blog that cross play, cross progression and cross purchase is available on Xbox One with “PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android.”
This is a similar announcement that Epic Games made a few days ago saying the PS4 has “Cross Play and Cross Progression between PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and eventually Android.”
As you can clearly see from both announcements, both PS4 and Xbox One is ignoring each other for some reason. There’s no official reason why this is, but it’s disappointing we cannot have PS4 vs Xbox One matches in Fortnite. It’s possible Epic Games knows the voice chat will be toxic between console gamers so they decided not to do it.
With this announcement, the only major platform without Fortnite is the Nintendo Switch. If mobile devices can handle the game, I’m pretty sure the Switch is powerful enough to run the game as well. The Battle Royale mode has one map and the graphics are not too demanding.
Fortnite is free to play and has quickly become the most played online video game out today. PUBG was the previous most popular online game, but Epic Games won the battle eventually.
