Cross-platform multiplayer has been among this year's top trends, with major platform holders breaking down barriers between consoles. Microsoft and Nintendo have been among those leading the efforts, and while initially averse, Sony is now embracing Fortnite cross-play. With three major consoles now ready, it's up to publishers to offer support via games.
Overwatch developer, Blizzard Entertainment, is the latest to share its thoughts on cross-play, via an interview with Eurogamer. Speaking at its annual BlizzCon convention, game director, Jeff Kaplan, reportedly talked plans for its hero-based shooter.
Expanding, Kaplan touched on the current state of Overwatch cross-play.
It's still early days for cross-play, especially on PlayStation 4, with a beta underway for Fortnite. For Overwatch, the move will help bolster its multiplayer-focused gameplay, with a stronger population and player flexibility.
