    In what was a bit of a surprise, Sony announced it would open cross-play to Fortnite between Xbox One and PlayStation earlier this week, paving the way for more titles.
    2018 has undoubtedly been the year of Fortnite. The battle royale title has utterly exploded this past year, defying demographic boundaries, and even system boundaries, becoming one of the first games to feature cross-play between Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices. There's one notable exception there.
    Sony declined to join the cross-play party, receiving waves of criticism in the process. The backlash was even covered in the mainstream media, due to Fortnite's popularity. Other developers of prominent online games chimed in with criticism also, notably Rocket League, and Microsoft noted that the reason the cross-play focused Bedrock Edition of Minecraft wasn't hitting PlayStation was due to this restriction.
    Sony has since recanted, opening up Fortnite to cross-play for the first time while paving the way for other titles to join in the fun. So we got back in touch with Microsoft to inquire about the possibility of Minecraft players, finally, being able to link up across every major platform. Redmond's response was promising.
