Fortnite Is Gaining Cross-Platform Play, But Not Between Consoles, Obviously

Phil Spencer Wants Xbox/PlayStation Cross Platform Play in Fortnite

'Fortnite' Gets Xbox One Cross-Platform Support

Microsoft's Xbox One was left out of the list, which like we said isn't surprising given Sony's past reluctance.

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".

There isn't a start date yet, but soon you'll be able to play in the same match with anyone playing on the PC or the newly announced mobile versions of the game.

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

A fan asked Spencer over on Twitter yesterday about the possibility of crossplay between the two consoles, noting he really wanted to see players getting together for sessions. They added a post later explaining that, yes, the Xbox One is a part of that same functionality.

They are definitely good news, and they seem to be more in line with Microsoft's positive stance on cross-play functionality in their video games. One step at a time.

In the SEC, Tennessee is the highest ranked SEC team at No. 10, followed by Florida , Arkansas , and then Missouri at No. 32. The defending-champion Tar Heels are as hot as anyone, despite falling to Virginia in the ACC Tournament championship.

This includes the same map, the same unlockable content and even the same weekly updates.

And now, Fortnite has announced that the game is coming on mobile devices.

Thinking precisely in the latter, Epic Games wants to eliminate all possible barriers and offer the best facilities to the users to enjoy their title.

"We're happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android", reads an official Epic statement.

This implies that Sony is reluctant to support the feature.
