Crossplay between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is not supported by Sony or Microsoft, but a “configuration issue” allowed Fortnite players on Xbox One and PS4 to play together this past weekend.
A Reddit user noticed the issue after he saw a player with an Xbox Gamertag in his lobby while he was playing on his PS4.
The thread quickly grew, with many players confirming they were playing against others on different consoles.
One gamer even shared an image of an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the same room connecting to the same game.
“We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected,” a spokesperson for Epic Games told Engadget.
The configuration issue implies that the only barrier preventing crossplay between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is an artificial one.
