Apparently cross-play between Xbox Live and PSN just isn’t going to be happening. Despite the fact that last year Microsoft open the gates of cross-play with the possibility of PSN by Chris Charla. He posted a letter, he says Director of [email protected] on the Xbox website. And he said:
First, 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. This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks – including other console and PC networks.
Of course, it’s up to game developers to support this feature, and Xbox Live players will always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players. We’re thrilled to confirm that Psyonix’s Rocket League will be one of the first games to take advantage of this new capability by enabling cross-network play between Xbox One and PC players, with an open invitation for other networks to participate as well.
Now, at the time we weren’t really sure what this was going to happen because the Rocket League developers said they had it figured out. They could do it between PS4 or PSN and Xbox Live and they were going to have PC, PSN and Xbox Live all playing against each other. They had it figured out and Sony declined it and now they are declining more apparently.
Apparently not only Rocket League fail but CD Project Red tried to get Gwent’s to Cross-Play between Xbox One, Xbox Live and PSN and that failed. Sony turned it down and Sony also recently turned down the opportunity for Taken 7. And now the new CEO of development studios and he says:
If you are still hopeful things may change soon, he says it’s crystal clear, his games will not support Cross-platform functionality because it’s not just possible.
