The pair of announcements detailed cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4, Mobile, and PC. We have worked with them over the past few months to make this possible and we will provide this functionality to the Fornite players on Xbox along with other platforms.

Epic games is adding cross play support for its genre crossing battle royale, survival game. 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.

They are definitely good news, and they seem to be more in line with Microsoft's positive stance on cross-play functionality in their video games. Sony's PS4 cross-plays with only the PC and still disregards Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch platforms. The blog reads, "On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac". It's still disappointing that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game do not have that functionality with each other, but something is better than nothing, right? While Mac is still considered to be PC and iOS mobile, there's no doubt here that even Apple, Microsoft's biggest competitor, is willing to do cross-platform play with its rivals.

Will the U.S. continue to lead?
It's important to note here that thus far the North Korean regime has not publicly or officially requested a meeting with Trump. A statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the place and time of the meeting was still being worked out.

You can see above how keen both parties were to involve Sony, but so far they've refused to support cross-play with any game, not just Fortnite.

And now, Fortnite has announced that the game is coming on mobile devices.

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.
