Recently we learned that Rocket League developer Pysonix would be able to get cross-platform play for their game between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in just a few hours if Sony allowed it, and now another developer has come out in support of the feature. This time it’s The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red, and it’s for a game they have in the works.
The developer’s CEO Marcin Iwiński said that they have a solution for cross-platform play between the two consoles ready to go, but they just need Sony to allow it to happen. They said the following:
“We are keeping our fingers crossed for Rocket League paving the way. Our upcoming Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will launch in closed beta for PC and Xbox One later this year, and Microsoft already confirmed Gwent’s cross-play feature not only between Xbox One and PC, but also other consoles if they allow it. We also do have a technical solution in place for PS4 and would love to add Sony’s platform to cross-play at the start of open beta. All we need is a green light from Sony.”
With more and more developers coming out in support of cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it’s going to become harder and harder for Sony to avoid the issue. It will be very interesting to see how the rest of the year goes, and whether or not Sony eventually caves in and gives the green light.
