A few days ago, Fortnite was caught in a controversy involving cross-play support. Rumors abound that the game would only feature the functionality between PlayStation 4 and other platforms, excluding Xbox One. It turns out this isn't the case at all.
Today, Epic Games clarified this and confirmed that cross-play was coming to the Xbox One version of Fortnite as well.
We're happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and... Android... Contrary to what may have been implied, Microsoft has long been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles. We've been working together with them over the last several months to make this possible, and will bring this functionality to Fortnite players on Xbox right along with other platforms.
It's great to see the Xbox One version of the game support cross-play because, as the post says, Microsoft has been a proponent of the functionality for years now. The company's Xbox Play Anywhere initiative goes as far as to give players a free Windows 10 copy of a supported game if they purchase it on Xbox One, and vice versa.
