Forums - Sony Discussion - Cross-play on PlayStation 4 is now available for all developers to use in their games

"Sony’s cross-play function for PlayStation 4 has now completed its beta phase and is a full feature for developers to make use of.

Strangely, Sony has made no official announcement about cross-play being promoted to a full feature. The new instead comes from a Wired article, which states that cross-play is now available to any developer that wishes to implement it in their game. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare seems likely to be the first new game to support this at launch, with it being set for release later this month.

The beta phase of PS4 cross-play included games such as Fortnite and Rocket League, which helped prove the system’s capabilities. Hopefully from now on we’ll see many more multi-platform games support cross-play."

Full article

I wasn't even aware that there was a Beta phase for this.
I hope this means devs of online multiplayer games will make use of it. Monster Hunter: World comes to mind, but the PC version is still a few months behind, so that probably won't be possible.

~Edit~

Announcement trailer already from none other than Xbox.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

...Good...



Damn, this is gonna ruin online gaming on PlayStation because...

Uhm... I can't remember the arguments being made by Sony fans that actually opposed this. I just know its bad for some reason.

Completely unnecessary!  🤦‍♂️

If it's somwthing you were hoping they would offer, how about just celebrate the fact that they r doin it...🤷‍♂️ 



Not being able to play online with people on another system has been industry standard since the days of the Dreamcast. People that complain about lack of crossplay in a game are the same people that think console exclusives are evil. They are the same people that desperately want Stadia to take off.

Sony's exclusives was what this was all about all along! Sony will now proceed to lose their exclusives, just like they feared, just as planned!

Behold the master plan!:

1. implement widespread cross-play
2. ???
3. Sony loses their exclusives.

Mwahahahahahahahaha!



Unnecessary, but ok, cool I guess?
