Wargroove Publisher on PS4 Cross-Play: We Were Told No

That much is now unknown, but at the very least this story hints at Sony's reticence to the whole concept of cross-play. As ever, just work with your PlayStation account manager, and they will walk you through the steps that we've learned through our partnership with Epic on how this works.

Sony might have permitted cross-platform online play - or cross-play - in a select few major games, but don't get your hopes up that the PS4 maker has opened those gates to everyone, Kotaku reports. Plainly stated, Layden espoused: "We're open for business on this one".

He then stated that there isn't any "gating factor" regarding cross-play right now; unfortunately, Shawn Layden has since been called out by the CEO of Wargroove developer Chucklefish on ResetEra for that statement being false. Sony was famously late to the party, eventually allowing the feature to be included in games like Fortnite and Rocket League, but this comment seemed to suggest that this would all be behind us.

"I think Nintendo's doing wonderful things with the Switch, and the platform", he beamed.

Though Layden did not specify, those expectations could include release information for "The Last of Us Part 2", "Ghost of Tsushima" or the game that lets players make their own games, "Dreams".


Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden recently told Game Informer that cross-play, which is now in beta on PlayStation 4, is open to all developers and that there "isn't any gating factor" to it.

We just launched Wargroove with cross-play between PC, Switch and Xbox One so I wanted to chime in.

Now selling at Wallmart for just $39.99, the console is a must-have for any '90s kids looking to relive their youth. boasting Sony's crop of its 20 most popular games already pre-installed. "We were told no".

"From our side, we can *literally* toggle a switch and have it working. The media landscape has changed, which you know better than anybody, and with the internet being on 24-7, there is no silent periods where people aren't getting game news".
