Update March 10th: Cross play is coming to Xbox One
Since launch, Fortnite has offered cross play for players between PlayStation 4 and PC. With their latest announcement that Fortnite is coming to iOS and Android, Epic also stated that optional cross play will be available between mobile, PS4, PC, and Mac.
Many Xbox users were left wondering where there is no support for cross play on Xbox One with Fortnite. In a new statement issued to The Verge, Microsoft spokesperson claims they are actively working with Epic Games on possible cross play for Fortnite with PC, mobile, and possibly other consoles. Thus far, Sony has been reluctant to allow cross play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“We have been working closely with the team at Epic Games for some time to bring this functionality to all current and future versions of Fortnite and expect it to be available on Xbox along with other platforms. Microsoft has long been a leading voice in encouraging the adoption of cross-platform play and the potential of connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles.”
