Fortnite on Nintendo Switch supports cross-play so users can play with those of all other platforms (Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android), PlayStation 4 is obviously excluded from the list: Sony, once again, says no to the cross-play between consoles.
The lack of multiplayer support shared with the popular console thus prevents Switch users from encountering Playstation 4 players in the Fortnite games and vice versa, but also prohibits Sony users from accessing the Switch game with their existing Epic accounts.
At the moment Sony has not yet released statements, but now the vision of the Japanese giant is quite clear. Sony with its PlayStation 4 is clearly the undisputed leader in the console and indeed the multiplayer shared between home platforms could only “damage”.
Agreeing on Fortnite would mean accepting the cross-play on all the titles that contemplate it and therefore many users passionate about online games would no longer be forced to have the same console of friends. The shared multiplayer is not yet a feature implemented in all games, but we are confident that as time passes, more and more titles will adopt this system.
Recall that Fortnite Battle Royale is available on the Nintendo e-Shop of Switch, can be downloaded for free and even Fortnite will be updated regularly with the addition of new content.
