Following the announcement of several games featuring cross-play between PCs and consoles, excluding the PlayStation 4, at E3 2017, a Microsoft executive has explained that they and Sony are in ongoing discussions about making cross-network play a reality some day.
Speaking to Game Reactor, Xbox Head of Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed the companies have discussed the possibility of cross-play and continue to do so. Greenberg remains hopeful that Sony will be supportive of the initiative.
"Absolutely, yeah. We're talking to Sony
, we do partner with them on Minecraft and of course we would like to enable them to be part of that; one community, to unite gamers. So we're talking to them and we're hopeful that they'll be supportive of it," Greenberg told Game Reactor.
