As discovered by a bunch of users over on Reddit, apparently Fortnite has the ability to link PS4 and Xbox One users together online. Apparently you can have cross-network on PS4 and Xbox One if you just give Sony the finger.

A player named PRE_-CISION-_ was among the final five survivors of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode when he was killed by a player with a pretty unconventional name for PS4. How were people able to differentiate between an Xbox gamertag and a PSN name?

KitGuru Says: Cross-platform play between Xbox One and PS4 makes the most sense, which is why it's so odd that Sony is so opposed to it but open to cross-play with PCs.

Back at E3, Eurogamer interviewed both Microsoft and Sony about cross-network play, following the announcement Minecraft and Rocket League would link up on PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Does this mean we're finally getting cross-platform play between the two long-standing rivals?

The company which didn't want to play ball? He booted up his Xbox One and typed it in there, "for the hell of it", he said.

Would enabling cross-play online be a smart move from Microsoft or Sony? Wildcard, the developer of hit dino survival game Ark, stated it would "not take more than a few days" to get up and running. That same search didn't return anything on PlayStation 4, which suggests that Fortnite has cross-platform play enabled.

Regardless of the answer, it's another sign that PS4 and Xbox One cross-network play could happen right now - if only everyone agreed to it.
