While it’s been reported before that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One cross-play has been made to work by some developers, it’s not something that’s going to happen anytime soon..or has it?
On a Reddit post by user PRE_-CISION-_, he reported that he played Fortnite Battle Royale on PS4 and noticed he got killed by a person with an odd gamertag “zCypher Nine.” Why is this gamertag unique? Well, it’s impossible to create on PS4 since you can’t have a PSN ID with a space, only an underscore. This same user also had an Xbox One, and he hopped online to check, and yep, they’re on Xbox One. Check out a screenshot of it below, as well as a Twitch video where he got killed by zCypher Nine player.
Is this confirmation of PS4 and Xbox One cross-play being enabled without any sort of announcement from Microsoft, Sony or even Epic Games? Or are these players on PC and the PS4 and PC version of Fortnite are sharing a player pool?
Once we know more details, we’ll update the story. If you’re playing Fortnite on PS4, have you encountered anyone from the Xbox One crowd?
