The quest to get Sony hooked up to cross-platform games seems to have finally achieved its goal. The company confirmed this week that the cross-platform gaming solution is out of beta for the PlayStation 4 launch last year.
But the news doesn't come with the noise and bang from Sony. Instead, it was revealed almost as a side sentence in an interview with Sony Interactive Entertainment chief Jim Ryan on the Wired site.
As Ryan points out, the possibility of cross-platform is now in the hands of developers. Sony has opened the locks and now it is up to each studio to decide whether to include cross-platform games in their projects.
Games like Fortnite and Rocket League have been featured on cross-platform talent for some time now, and even more so far.
Playerunknown's Battlegrounds PUBG Corp developer. announced on Tuesday that PlayStation and Xbox players can now compete against each other. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – to be released on October 25 – is another game that has put a great deal of emphasis on allowing everyone to play together, no matter what they play.
