After a rather long wait, Sony has finally announced that PlayStation will officially support crossplay.
Microsoft previously led the charge on crossplay support by allowing PC and Xbox gamers to compete against one another. Nintendo soon joined the fray alongside Microsoft by announcing support on Minecraft.
However, until now, Sony remained stubborn on the idea. Despite the initial refusal, Sony has now announced that it is actively working towards supporting the initiative.
The news comes as part of a Wired interview with PlayStation CEO, Jim Ryan. Ryan said that a new system is currently in beta that will allow for extensive crossplay. The technology will reportedly “support cross-play on any titles that studios provide the functionality for.”
The new system will go live in October and initially only provide support for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. More titles are likely to be added to the crossplay pool in the near future.
