So it seems that cross-play may not quite completely be off Microsoft‘s agenda after Sony said it would not be possible due to security reasons. Gamereactor managed to speak at Gamescon 2017 to the head of marketing at Xbox, Aaron Greenberg in Cologne at who indicated that talks may not as yet be over. They spoke about many other topics, but one of the main topics was again cross-play
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.
I still hope we will see cross-play. I want to challenge my friends on Xbox to games, but don’t want to switch to Xbox to do so.
Would you like to see certain games come through in cross-play? Let us know.
