Microsoft is now ready to accomodate cross-platform play0 Comments
Back in March, Microsoft made the exciting announcement that it would openly support cross-platform play between PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, and now it looks like the company is officially ready to implement the new feature. ID@Xbox head Agostino Simonetta told Eurogamer that all of the tech is ready and available to any developer who wants to use it. "Any title that wants to update their game to include cross-network play, any title that wants to launch soon and take advantage of that, we are ready," Simonetta said.
Rocket League, the popular car-based soccer game, is the first game to use the cross-platform feature, although it's yet to be decided when it will be implemented. That's the developer's call, but once they're ready, Rocket League fans will be able to play with each other regardless of whether or not they're using an Xbox One or PlayStation 4. We have yet to see if any other games will be jumping on board. PlayStation said that the technical aspects of implementing the feature were easy, but that the bureaucratic red tape might make cross-network play a little more difficult.
