Oops, it looks like for a brief few hours PS4 and Xbox One cross-play was available in Fortnite. Now, Fortnite developer Epic Games says that feature was actually a bug, which the studio is referring to as a “configuration issue” that it says it has fixed.

Hot on the heels of Nintendo accidentally releasing a Metroid game last week.
!!!! WHAT? It's this easy?
This doesn't look great on the platform holders. It's almost as though the technical limitations of cross-play have…
It's so fucking easy that you can do it accidentally jesus christ
So theres no hiding it can be done now Someones lying
Damn Sony ruining everything
Sony don't wanna play with others.
Yeah so, the reason why there's a console war has always been that sony and Microsoft are petty and don't want us t…
so many uses of "console wars" in this thread it's like a glitch in time.
Si seulement le cross-play était possible...oups...
People kept telling me I was crazy, but I've been saying cross-platform play is the future for a decade already.…
Let me play w my xbox niggas damn
Will the Berlin wall of video games collapse soon?
The fact that cross-play is this easy and Sony isn't actively trying to make it a reality is completely fucking emb…
So, apparently it's that easy, but we can't just have it all the time? That's ridiculous...
This should be the norm . Walled off multiplats shouldn't exist anymore.
@TheHunterWildTV the cross-play was a bug, not a feature... Kappa
What a shame 😑
Ah ah ... Yeah .. Accidentally ^^
Tan cerca, y tan lejos.
C'est parfait.

Hey @PlayOverwatch can this "accidentally" happen this weekend? Would like to play with more friends during the fre…
What the fuck? See i want to have cross play for all systems but yet again sony doesn't want it.
This is pretty insane.
Infuriating.
Well damn, might as well just let us do it. Come on, @EpicGames.
Lol Sony Thx for the bs
En un mundo perfecto...
Not sure what cross-platform would bring. But I am interested in it happening. I only recently found someone I woul…

Just when the war was over
amazing how easy it works though ?! shame Sony are being so stubborn. imagine an Xbox Vs PS4 Overwatch tournament 😉

Cross-play is so easy Epic did it by accident. Yay console ecosystems
I still love this, like, wow!
Pfft what the actual heck.
What the what...
@Reapers_Coffin
...And for one brief and shinning moment, time gave us the future we all crave, and then suddenly snuffed it out.
We all know its been possible for years #Microsoft and #Sony just wont allow it
It...it's THAT simple to enable that function? Damn.
Seriously Sony! The consoles play the same games, the same way.
Proof that it really is this easy..
What a joke
“Crossplay felt this was a game changer, the world could exist with both major console networks happily together.”E…
Esto es importante, ya que parece una prueba mas que un bug...
Console companies are shit. Can't play together cuz it's not kosher with company execs. Suck my flaps.
apparently this is actually possible if someone did it on accident, and it's all a matter of keeping the money/play…
Can you believe this shit, @JimSterling? Actually I don't think this shit comes as a shock to anybody
WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THAT
How do we turn this "bug" into a "feature" --
Would love to play MP games with my friends, if only Sony would pull its head out of its ass on this.
"Cross-console play seems to be so easy that a company like Epic can do it by mistake"
Wow it's nearly as if they were PC's or something.
Do people really think the companies shipping multi platform game engines have platform specific game servers?
Would love this to happen for all PS and XBox games but I'm not sure that it's commercially viable. Tie-in to brand…
If it can be done, why not allow it 🤷‍♂️
@KalelTony by mistake lol!!!! So it just them agreeing basically 😂
Yes, yes it is. You have to specifically code the feature to block cross-console playing if you want to. Otherwise…
Please @PlayStation stop the nonsense and let us all play together!!! Let’s make our voices heard! Let’s share this!
Imagine adding something great to your game by accident and then removing it and splitting your player base
when people say "crossplay is too hard!" im gonna point to this article from now on -

Of course this wasn't an accident. It was a deliberate attempt to create an ongoing discourse on the subject.
If its as easy as flipping a switch, just allow it. This all seems silly now. Make it happen.
PlayStation users were briefly exposed to unprotected fun with uncouth XBox owners. Casualty's unconfirmed. @kotaku
For a second there the world was in perfect harmony! #PS4 #XboxOneX

"Why is cross play so hard?" They ask. Tbf, it is not if you are running through your servers, however, rules exist
