Epic Games is taking the ultra-popular battle royale to newer heights by having PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X as a launch title for both consoles later this year. It plans to also migrate Fortnite to the impressive Unreal Engine 5 in mid-2021, which should enhance the game’s visuals and greatly expand its capabilities.
Given that all current Fortnite players can play with and against each other irregardless of the platform they’re on, it seems likely that the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will get to also experience the same by having cross-platform capabilities too. In fact, Epic has doubled down on its cross-play vision.
It just released the Epic Online Services toolkit. The kit which allows developers of PC, Mac and console titles to enable cross-platform experiences across all game engines, stores and account services. Android and iOS support is coming soon. The announcement of the free software development kit in late 2018.
