It seems that enabling cross-platform play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gamers is a simple configuration setting, as Epic games mistakenly let PlayStation 4 players battle against Xbox One gamers on Fortnite today.
Fornite players on Reddit suddenly noticed PSN ID’s popping up in Xbox One games, easy to spot as PlayStation IDs do not allow a space and Xbox One does. Later a father and son teamed up, one on Xbox and the other on PlayStation.
This evening Epic confirmed that cross platform play had been enabled, “We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected,” an Epic spokesperson told Eurogamer.
Microsoft have said that they are continuing discussions with Sony regarding cross-platform play but so far the Japanese giant is refusing to allow the feature.
