Wargroove Dev Says Sony Refused Cross-Platform Play Despite Chairman's Comments

Wargroove Dev Says Sony Refused Cross-Platform Play Despite Chairman's Comments

As much as Sony has relaxed their policy a little by "listening to its fans", it seems that there are still many impediments to cross platform play. A lot of titles are cross-play between both platforms, and more games are constantly being updated with the feature. According to him, Sony is supposedly "open for business" and is only waiting on game developers to step up and implement it into their games.

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.

"We got to that place in Fortnite and it seems to be going reasonably well, from what I can tell". They talked the talk in 2018 and opened it up for Fornite in "beta" form (Rocket League is coming), but there is work to be done.

"We made many requests for cross-play (both through our account manager and directly with higher ups) all the way up until release month".

We just launched Wargroove with crossplay between PC, Switch and Xbox so I wanted to chime in.

In an interview with Game Informer, Layden placed the blame on developers because they haven't reached out to their PlayStation account managers.

That's starting to happen more and more this past year as Sony remains the sole publisher dragging their feet when it comes to fully open cross-play; and continues to blame developers for it to boot. But if the cold weather has already seen you polish off everything on your Netflix list, we've found a deal that's going to level-up your housebound evenings. Finally, those of us wanting to play a friendly game of the next big release on Switch with our best friends on PS4 would be able to do just that. "We were told no". From our side, we can literally toggle a switch and have it working.

As always, feel free to share your thoughts on this one in our comments section below.
