Xbox One X and PS4 crossplay is still a pipe dream

PS4 Xbox One X Cross Play

Theoretically, crossplay between the Xbox One and PS4 is possible. However, at E3, Jim Ryan, PlayStation executive, said that Sony won’t allow Xbox One X and PS4 crossplay due to a series of concerns for users’ safety. If Sony allowed the PlayStation to connect to an outside network such as the Xbox Live, the company wouldn’t manage to maintain complex control over the experience. In other words, this might put users, especially kids at risk.

Cross-play support is in the works, but it’s not available yet

According to Jeremy Stieglitz, lead designer of Ark: Survival Evolved, it looks like there might not be a potential cross-play support between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for now.

Stieglitz discussed the subjects of cross-play support and Xbox One X on Twitter where fans asked all kinds of questions.

When the subject of cross-play between the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 was brought up on Twitter by a curious fan, Stieglitz responded that Studio Wildcard had already considered. He added that the team is working on it internally, but the necessary approval to roll it hasn’t come yet.

It’s interesting to note the fact that this is not even the first time when Studio Wildcard called out Sony for the policy that the company has. In case you didn’t know this, last year the developer confessed that Sony wouldn’t allow an in-development version of Ark on PS4. But those issues have apparently been put out of the way, as by the end of 2016, Ark did manage to reach the PS4.

Ark will officially launch on August 29 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
