During the conference of Microsoft last night, hosted at E3 2017, the support for crossplay has been announced for all versions of Minecraft, except for Sony. Jez Corden of Windows Central declares that the Japanese company has rejected the implementation of the feature.
Last night, during the Microsoft conference in which it was shown Xbox One X, it was announced the unification of all versions of Minecraft, that is, the ability to play cross-play across all platforms… except those of Sony.
Why? The reason was quite easy to imagine, given that Sony has never been a lover of cross-play with other platforms, but the confirmation came from Jez Corden of Windows Central, who in a tweet established a clear rejection of the Japanese manufacturer of allowing this feature for Minecraft.
In short, all versions of Minecraft, including for Nintendo Switch, will support crossplay, allowing users of different platforms to play together. This, however, will not be possible on the console of Sony, as the Japanese giant has refused the implementation of the service, apparently because of certain company policies.
As it has been reiterated several times, moreover, the crossplay between different consoles is a very difficult function to achieve, since it requires the united consent of their respective manufacturers.
At bottom we have reported the tweet of Jez Corden:
RE: cross platform Minecraft. Yes to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation refused.
