One of the biggest announcements out of E3 was how a few popular games like Rocket League and Minecraft will allow cross-platform play between Nintendo Switch and Xbox One players. One of the biggest news stories out of E3, was how the PlayStation would not participate in this cross-platform play between the other major hardware manufacturers.
Weeks later, and hundreds of news stories later, it seems Sony still hasn't changed their stance according to Rocket League developer, Psyonix.
At E3 we reported that Psyonix was in daily communication with Sony about a variety of topics, but cross-platform chief among them. However, according to a recent interview with Engadget, Sony's answers in regard to cross-platform hasn't changed much. At least according to Psyonix
"There have been a slight variations on how it's been presented to us, but essentially it's the same answer... It's 'not right now" or 'It's something we'll consider.' That's paraphrasing, but there hasn't been any movement."
Psyonix is a firm believer in cross-platform, even going as far as saying it's the future of gaming. At the same time, Psyonix reaffirms its commitments to Sony whose PlayStation Plus service helped launch Rocket League to massive success. It will be interesting to see how one of cross-platform gaming's biggest supporters continue to discuss it with cross-platform's biggest holdout.
Still, as Psyonix says, the issue of cross-platform ultimately comes down to how badly fans want the feature on the PlayStation, and Sony's willingness to "push a button" to make it happen. Whether or not Sony will have a change of heart on the matter any time soon remains to be seen.
