Fortnite Is Getting Cross-Platform Play Across Xbox One, PC, And Mobile

After announcing its absurdly popular battle royal game with another mode, Fortnite, was heading to mobile platforms, Epic has announced that players on Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, will able to play with each other, with Android users joining the fun “in the next few months.”

The mobile version of the battle royal mode will be exactly the same as it is on console, and will receive in updates in tandem with other versions. The company did not announce exactly when cross-platform matches would kick off, but instead pointed players to sign up for the Invite Event on iOS.

Absent from the announcement is the PS4 version, which, as you may remember, was briefly able to play nice with the Xbox One version late last year due to an error on Epic’s part. Considering every other platform the game is on is part of this crossplay, signs once again point to Sony being responsible about the lack of crossplay at this point.

Our Take
It’s no longer surprising when a game has cross-platform play on every available platform except Sony’s, but always disappointing. At least PC and Xbox players will be able to join up with each other soon.
