The mobile version of the game will allow players to battle against console and computer players.

The leading industry in software, especially in operating systems - Microsoft, has just pushed the barrier with cross-platform play in Epic Games' free-to-play battle royale game, Fortnite.

PlayStation 4 players can play with PC, Mac, and mobile. "We've been working together with them over the last several months to make this possible, and will bring this functionality to Fortnite players on Xbox right along with other platforms." said the Fortnite team. In a surprise announcement yesterday, Epic Games revealed Fortnite will support cross-play and cross-progression between the PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and eventually the Android versions of the game. A whopping 3.4 million people were playing the game concurrently at one point in February.

The specs sheet for Android players has not been released but it seems likely that it will limited to a comparable level of access as the iOS platform.

It does look like the cross-platform play could arrive for games like Fortnite, Minecraft, Rocket League, or any number of multiplayer games already released or yet to arrive - but only when Sony gives the go ahead. Spencer's comment comes after a couple of announcements regarding cross-platform play for Fortnite. That's to say a player using an Xbox will be able to play with another player using a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet.

Fortnite players on iOS will need a compatible device and an internet connection strong enough to take part. Console quality graphics and action. It'll be interesting to see how mobile device players fare against console and computer players who arguably have the advantages of a larger screen and greater gaming controls.
