Gears of War 4 Crossplay

"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".

In a happy incident back in September previous year, a bug in the game caused players from Xbox One and PS4 play together.

Multi-platform play has been the go to for many game franchises, and has worked out fine.

This is mainly due to Sony, being hesitant when it comes to allowing its PlayStation 4 games to cross-play with Xbox One.
