Update: Pete Hines has released a statement regarding this evolving issue. “Folks, chill. I work with a lot of devs and games for whom this is important going forward. Fallout 76 does not support crossplay, for a number of reasons. I have no idea if it ever will. But I assure you it is not on our radar right now as we focus on B.E.T.A. and launch.” leading us to believe that Sony’s move has been too little too late for Fallout after all. Bethesda’s role in bringing cross-play to the Xbox and PS4 remains, and their ultimatum on The Elder Scrolls Legends a brave move indeed. Below is our original unedited story.
Graciously the biggest gaming company of this console generation has recently announced a Beta for Fortnite cross-play between PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox adding to the already supported Mobile and PC cross-play functionality. This comes off the tail of a heated debate between fans, Epic Games, Sony, the developers of Rocket League, and surprisingly Bethesda Games.
