Sony still not up for multi-format Battle Royale
Microsoft’s Phil Spencer made an appearance on twitter this weekend to briefly show his support of Epic Games’ juggernaut Fortnite going cross-play on all formats.
After a Fortnite fan posted a tweet telling Spencer that they were hoping for cross-play to be implemented between PS4 and Xbox One players, the Xbox head simply and succinctly replied “Me 2”. This was then amusingly followed up by the Fortnite twitter themselves, who replied to Spencer with “We 3”.
But, currently, all of this is merely wishful thinking, as Sony are notoriously against the concept of PS4 players cross-fraternizing with Xbox owners. While both companies are willing to cross-play with the PC format, in games such as Street Fighter V, Minecraft and Killer Instinct. Sony still seem dead-set against Team Green and Team Blue meeting on the battlefield.
The Fortnite party is set to get even bigger, with recent news that not only is a mobile port of the game on the way, but that too will feature cross-play with all other formats. The Battle Royale player base is set to grow and grow.
