Sony has a long standing history of avoiding cross-platform play on the Playstation 4. Unfortunately for Sony, Fortnite does not, as it's available on almost every gaming platform out there and supports crossplay on all of them except for the PS4. Facing increasing pressure from Fortnite's insane popularity, along with a ton of backlash, Sony finally caved in, and launched a Fortnite cross-play beta on the PS4. For 24 years, we have strived to deliver the best gaming experience to our fans by providing a uniquely PlayStation perspective. Today, the communities around some games have evolved to the point where cross-platform experiences add significant value to players. In recognition of this, we have completed a thorough analysis of the business mechanics required to ensure that the PlayStation experience for our users remains intact today, and in the future, as we look to open up the platform. This represents a major policy change for SIE, and we are now in the planning process across the organisation to support this change. We will update the community once we have more details to share, including more specifics regarding the beta timeframe, and what this means for other titles going forward.
