Microsoft Announces Cross-Network Play

/ Mar 14th, 2016 No Comments

Rocket League Xbox One Release Date

Microsoft announced that games using Xbox Live will allow developers to support cross-network play.

Cross-platform play is now being natively supported between Xbox One and Windows 10 games as a part of Microsoft’s new gaming initiative. Those players using Xbox Live will have to the opportunity to join games with players on different online multiplayer networks. This means that Xbox players can potentially game with PlayStation players.

Rocket League will be one of the first games to enable cross-network play.

Chris Charla, ID@Xbox director, made the announcement on Xbox Wire. But just because cross-network play is possible doesn’t mean all games will support the feature. “Of course, it’s up to game developers to support this feature, and Xbox Live players will always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players,” said Charla.

Rocket League will be one of the first games supporting Xbox cross-network play. Psyonix’s hit title will allow PC and Xbox One players to compete together. While it is possible for Xbox One and PS4 players to play with each other, it has yet to be confirmed by Microsoft, Sony, or Psyonix.

Quick Take

Microsoft has made great strides in creating good will for the Xbox community and its players. Last year’s backwards compatibility move was a stroke of genius and Xbox One games coming to Windows 10 shows a more open-minded Microsoft. The company may be lagging behind Sony but enabling cross-network play is a move that everyone should be happy about. Exclusives are great but it would be exciting to live in a future where Xbox Live and PlayStation Network players could face off in virtual battlefields.
