PS4 Cross-Play Reportedly Out of Beta and Open to All Developers

It came as a bit of a surprise when Sony officially announced PS4 cross-play support for Fortnite back in September last year and Xbox gave an awesome response that you should really check out if you missed it back then. Not everything was sunshine and roses, however, as some developers felt like Sony was playing favourites regarding PS4 cross-play support.

It will be exciting to see which titles add PS4 cross-play support. Further, the next big title that has been advertising cross-play is none-other than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is set to release on 25 October 2019. It has been a long time coming and hopefully, games like Borderlands 3 will get support for the feature soon. We already have games like Rocket League and extremely popular monster-hunting title, Dauntless, offering cross-play, as well as Fortnite, obviously.
