Microsoft And Epic Games Work Together To Push Cross-Platform Play Further

"Fortnite" takes a giant new step towards establishing itself as the benchmark for extreme survival: if its "Battle Royale" mode broke records at the beginning of February gathering 3.4 million simultaneous users, its recently announced arrival in iOS and Android promises to pulverize that milestone.

Now we've received confirmation that Xbox One will in fact support cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android. This was kind of a bummer considering Xbox has always been the console frontman for pushing cross-play incentives - it was always Sony that wasn't ready to play ball.

The pair of announcements detailed cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4, Mobile, and PC.

Virginia is the front-runner to be named the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament when the bracket is released on Sunday. Miles netted 25 points to lead his team for the second time in as many days, while Carter added 17 points and nine assists.

Meanwhile, Epic Games also confirmed the same in a blog post.

Multi-platform play has been the go to for many game franchises, and has worked out fine.

However it should be noted that Microsoft does not specifically mention the PS4, so it is possible that at the end of the day, cross-play between Xbox One and PS4 gamer won't be happening, but we guess at least there will be support between Xbox One and gamers on other platforms.

And now, Fortnite has announced that the game is coming on mobile devices.

There isn't a start date yet, but soon you'll be able to play in the same match with anyone playing on the PC or the newly announced mobile versions of the game. In addition to the having the full experience, the developer also revealed that the mobile versions of the game will also feature cross-platform support with the Xbox One, Mac, PC, and PS4.

Still, Microsoft has stated that they are working closely with Epic Games to enable the feature sometime in the future.
