Gamescom 2017: Microsoft confirms it is in talks with Sony about crossplay

Microsoft did not miss the opportunity in gamescom 2017 to address again the cross-play issue and the negative response that Sony still has on the issue. As it happened in E3 2017, some representatives of the company have referred to the theme using the echo of the event and this time Aaron Greenberg reported that the talks between companies are still standing.


Aaron Greenberg, head of marketing for Xbox, revealed to GameReactor that talks with Sony regarding crossplay are continuing and have at all times maintained their position to create a single community of players in multiplayer modes that transcend platforms and Focus on gaming experiences.

“We’re talking to Sony [about crossplay], 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 argued.

It should be recalled that after the announcement of crossplay for Minecraft, Microsoft publicly revealed that they were in talks with Sony to try to reach an agreement that would result in the participation of the Japanese company.

In this way, another chapter is written in this story about the crossplay involving Xbox and PlayStation, where the American company maintains its idea of overcoming the barriers present in consoles and offer to the players a game experience that goes more beyond that.

Do you think Sony will end up accessing the intentions of crossplay?
