Could this be? Could it finally be?
Peace in our time? Xbox One users, hand-in-hand with PlayStation 4 users?
It looks like Microsoft has extended the hand of peace. Will you take it Sony? Will you place your hands together and dance the dance of lovers, controllers entwined...
Real talk: this is probably not going to happen.
Today Chris Charla, the Director of the [email protected] program announced that the Xbox One would finally be receiving cross-platform play on the Xbox One — allowing Xbox players to play against PC players if the game allowed. He also confirmed that Rocket League would be one of the first games to take advantage of this.
Makes sense — PlayStation 4 players have already been playing alongside PC players since the launch of Rocket League.
But, here's the important part.
We’re thrilled to confirm that Psyonix’s Rocket League will be one of the first games to take advantage of this new capability by enabling cross-network play between Xbox One and PC players, with an open invitation for other networks to participate as well.
Is this a reference to another online network? A certain PlayStation online network? Also known as the PlayStation Network?
But it's unlikely. It seems like Microsoft is already trying to downplay this announcement by claiming different online networks doesn't necessarily refer to the PlayStation Network. Sony would also have to agree to this whole concept as well, obviously.
Well, never mind. We can dream the impossible dream. Maybe one day it will come true.
