Gamers around the world have been wanting a cross-play feature between the major consoles for years. Even more so over the past year as we have seen Microsoft working with PC and Nintendo. For this to work out, hardware manufacturers need to be onboard as well. Microsoft, Valve, and Nintendo are all in support of cross-play, but Sony continues to hold out on us.
over the course of a recent investor’s call. Chris Evenden, EA’s Vice President of Investor Relations, stated, “We’re looking at key franchises in terms of how we can deliver cross-platform play in a similar way that Fortnite has, especially some of our titles that have a broad and diverse player base. The ability to bring PC to mobile or mobile to console can bring family and friends together, and we think that’s an important part of our future development profile. Expect more from us on that front in the future.”
Now Battlefield V is the next big title to release under the EA umbrella but the real question is will Sony ever agree to work with Microsoft or even work with Nintendo? Gamers united all together through cross-play could be the next big thing in the industry but today it still sets as a long viewed pipe dream.
