As you might recall, back when the Switch version of Fortnite released, there was a lot of negativity about Sony’s lack of PlayStation 4 cross-play support. This eventually hit a point where Sony announced the would ‘beta’ the functionality with a very select few developers. This too had some negativity, largely directed at how few were allowed, though it seems like PlayStation Now supports this feature.
This is casually mentioned in an interview with Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, that Wired posted regarding PlayStation Now dropping to $9.99 a month in the United 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. This month’s Modern Warfare may be the first major title to take advantage of it at launch, and likely won’t be the last.Wired
Despite this news being a long time coming, many fans should be excited to see more support going forward. Hopefully, this will move the conversation away from blaming Sony as a reason not to support it and lead to more developers adopting it because they can.
Some of the games that now supports PlayStation 4 Cross-Play includes the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Dauntless, Paladins, and more.
