On May 4, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney accused Sony of not wanting to support cross-play, calling it the only company to have requested money to enable the aforementioned feature on Fortnite. According to the representative of Epic, the Japanese giant would have required a payment depending on the number of PlayStation players active in the game, unlike all other platforms. Subsequently, similar allegations also came from the Borderlands 3 team, and a little while ago, SIE President Jim Ryan released the first statements on the subject.
“Sony supports and encourages cross-play,” Jim Ryan told Axios, “and our commitment is visible through games like Rocket League , Call of Duty , Minecraft and, soon, Destiny 2 as well .” The President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment stated that more titles would arrive in the future with support for cross-play. PlayStation will continue to renew its commitment in this field.
Unfortunately, Ryan did not want to talk about the Borderlands 3 case, nor did he respond directly to the accusations of Epic Games. Still, in his last interview, he said he was eager to increase the fleet with this function.
