Microsoft dropped a major bombshell earlier this week, confirming that it was open to the possibility of cross-network play between consoles.
The company’s recent announcement meant that Xbox One vs PS4 multiplayer could one day become a reality, just like it has for Xbox One and Windows 10.
But Sony would have to be on board for anything like this to happen, and considering the success of the PS4, the Japanese gaming giant would seemingly have little to gain.
But maybe there’s hope yet, after all…
In a statement to Gamespot, a Sony spokesperson said that the company would be happy to talk to any publishers or developers about such an arrangement.
“PlayStation has been supporting cross-platform play between PC on several software titles starting with Final Fantasy 11 on PS2 and PC back in 2002,” reads the Sony statement.
“We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross-platform play.”
There’s no mention of Microsoft or Xbox One in all that, but they clearly haven’t ruled anything out.
Xbox One to PC multiplayer will begin with Rocket League. Fable Legendswould have supported cross-platform play, but that was canned when Microsoft shut Lionhead.
