Sony Bows to Growing Pressure & Enables 'Extended Fortnite Cross-Play Beta' - MMORPG.com

Sony has responded to increasing player unhappiness at the lack of cross play between PlayStation 4 and all of the other available Fortnite platforms. As of today an "extended Fortnite cross-play beta" has started for PlayStation 4 "following a comprehensive evaluation process". The news came via the PlayStation Blog penned by Sony Interactive President John Kodera. Most notably, Kodera says that "this represents a major policy change for SIE" going forward.

For 24 years, we have strived to deliver the best gaming experience to our fans by providing a uniquely PlayStation perspective. Today, the communities around some games have evolved to the point where cross-platform experiences add significant value to players. In recognition of this, we have completed a thorough analysis of the business mechanics required to ensure that the PlayStation experience for our users remains intact today, and in the future, as we look to open up the platform.

Check out the full post on the PlayStation Blog.
