Yesterday we reported that Rocket League developer Psyonix speaking with IGN confirmed that cross-network play between Xbox One and PS4 is all but ready to go and the dev is just waiting on the all clear from Sony.
It would appear that Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red is also prepared with their own cross-play solution and are just awaiting Sony to give the green light. In an statement given to IGN CD Projekt CEO Marcin Iwiński stated, “We are keeping our fingers crossed for Rocket League paving the way.”
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is heading to closed beta soon for Xbox One and PC, and Iwiński says the developer is ready for PS4 should Sony give the OK. ”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.”
Iwiński also wants to encourage other developers to show support for full cross-platform play between consoles and PC stating the question, “At the end of the day, this is for the players, isn’t it?”
Hopefully this means that with more developers expressing their interest in the cross-network play feature between consoles and PC that it will indeed result in Sony having all ducks in a row to give the proverbial “green light”.
Of course we will keep you posted with any further developments as we receive them.
