It would seem that Epic forget to add Xbox One to the list of supported platforms for their widely popular free-to-play game Fortnite. Now they’ve confirmed Xbox One will support cross-platform play.

Officially announced on the Epic Fortnite website the company stated:

We’re happy to announce today that in partnership with our friends at Microsoft, Fortnite will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchase, between Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS and (in the next few months) Android.

Contrary to what may have been implied, Microsoft has long been a leading voice in supporting cross-platform play, connecting players across PC, mobile and all consoles. We’ve been working together with them over the last several months to make this possible, and will bring this functionality to Fortnite players on Xbox right along with other platforms.

Fortnite is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with iOS and Android coming in the future.
