There are plenty of titles that allow Xbox gamers to crossplay with gamers on PC, and vice versa. But crossplay between Xbox ans Playstation hasn’t been possible because Sony didn’t seem very interested in it.
Microsoft is open to the idea obviously and welcomes Xbox and PlayStation gamers to play each other online. Microsoft has confirmed that it’s in talks with Sony for PlayStation-Xbox crossplay. So maybe it could happen soon.
“We’re talking to Sony [about crossplay], we do partner with them on Minecraft and of course we would like to enable them to be part of that; one community, to unite gamers. So we’re talking to them and we’re hopeful that they’ll be supportive of it,” Aaron Greenberg, the head of marketing at Xbox, told Gamereactor.
We don’t know anything about the nature of the talks or about the response that Microsoft has received from Sony so far. We hope it happens soon.
Sony hasn’t commented about this yet. Gamers would certainly appreciate having the ability to crossplay with gamers on other platforms.
Seems like the ball is in Sony’s court right now. We hope that they can come to an agreement very soon. Keep your fingers crossed for now.
