Xbox One opens the door to cross-network play


The barrier between console and PC players has lowered a notch this week with an announcement from Microsoft concerning the Xbox One. The company said that it is enabling cross-network play between the Xbox One, PCs, and other console networks allowing developers the opportunity to connect audiences between platforms.

“In addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well,” Microsoft said. “This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks — including other console and PC networks.”

Rocket League will be the first game to take advantage of this new feature. It does raise the possibility that other online games, such as Neverwinter and World of Tanks, might do so as well.
