Psyonix waiting on Sony to give cross-play green light

Psyonix's Rocket League could be the game to bridge the divide between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players. Psyonix knows how to get the two communities playing together, but is waiting on Sony to give it the green light.

Psyonix's Vice President Jeremy Dunham told IGN that once approved the team could have the two consoles talking to each other in less than a day.

"It'd literally take a few hours to propagate [cross-console play] throughout the whole world," he explained, "so really, we're just waiting on the permission to do so."

Earlier this year, Microsoft said that it would be interested in opening up cross-console play. It has started breaking down barriers between PC and Xbox One with some cross-platform play and the Play Anywhere campaign, which will see players be able to pick up where they left off on the other platform.

Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can currently play against PC players, but not against one another. Dunham is confident that the triangle will be complete at some stage in the future.

"We're still very confident that [Sony's] eventually going to open those doors and welcome us in, but we also are really understanding that it's going to take a while, especially given all the ramifications of everything," he explained.
