However, despite all the solutions that the company is offering, there's still one that hasn't been made - PlayStation 4 owners won't be able to play with Xbox One owners.

Both Microsoft and Epic Games want to do cross-play on the PS4 for Fortnite, but it doesn't look like Sony are going to play ball.

Earlier this week, Epic Games announced cross-play and cross-progression between the PlayStation 4, Mac, iOS, and eventually the Android when it's released.

Microsoft has openly pushed cross-play between platforms while Sony has been reluctant to add support.

Epic Games has confirmed that soon you'll be able to play Fortnite with players on any other format... except the PlayStation 4. Which Spencer responded, "Me 2".

In a sudden twist, yet possibly expected turn of events, Fortnite developer, Epic Games, has announced that Fortnite will be gaining cross-platform play between Xbox and other platforms. "We are pleased to announce today that, in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will have cross-play, cross-progression and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the coming months) Android", he says. the publication "Contrary to what may have been implicit, Microsoft has always been a leading voice in supporting multiplatform games, connecting players through PCs, mobile devices and all consoles".

Sign-ups for the "Fortnite" Battle Royale Mode is now available for iOS users. This will be followed by a full launch later this year.

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. Same fornite experience, same map, same content, just on the go.
