In a move that is sure to be welcomed with open arms to Xbox One owners who have friends on PC or other consoles, Director of ID@Xbox Chris Charla announced today to Xbox Wire that, “In addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well.”
Yes, you read that right, Xbox One players may soon be able to challenge their friends on PlayStation 4! The first game to be a part of this new initiative is smash-hit Rocket League. Developer Psyonix says to, “expect to see Rocket League cross-network play working on Xbox One and PC later this spring, with information regarding other platforms coming soon.”
Chris Charla continues to state that, “It’s up to the developers to support his feature, and Xbox Live players will always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live Players.”
