The mainstream media has started reporting the uproar regarding the problem that if you have played Fortnite on PS4 you can’t use the same account on Switch. No such restrictions are in place if you have played the game on Xbox One, PC, or mobile.
We’re always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience. With… more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we’ve built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles. We also offer Fortnite cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for Fortnite fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms.
We have nothing further to add beyond this at this point.
Variety also managed to get hold of Epic and they refused to comment. Meanwhile, Microsoft are have a little bit of a troll.
@NintendoUK wanna play some Fortnite later?

UPDATE: “We embrace working with a developer and enabling them to bring their vision to life,” said Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime . “And whether that’s Fortnite, whether that’s a number of the other games that have cross-platform play on our console, from a developer standpoint that’s what we want. And we work hard with them to bring that to life.
“What competitors do is their decision to make. We believe being both developer-forward and fan-forward is in the best interest of the game.”
