Minecraft Dev Not Giving Up on Sony; Still in Discussions to Bring Cross-Platform Play to PS4

Minecraft developer is still in discussions with Sony to enable cross-platform play on PS4.

Minecraft developer Mojang recently announced the cross-platform beta period between PC and Android players under their Better Together campaign.

Mojang expressed their desire to enable cross-platform play on Sony’s PS4 several times, but Sony isn’t too keen on the idea. However, this isn’t stopping the studio from constantly trying to convince them and bringing the feature to all Minecraft players on the PS4. In the Better Together update FAQ, they mentioned they are “still in discussions” with Sony but they didn’t confirm anything.

Q: Will the new version be available on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch?

A: While we are thrilled to be able to confirm the new version of Minecraft is coming to Nintendo Switch, we are still in discussions with Sony about PlayStation and have nothing to confirm. We would love to work with Sony to bring players on PlayStation 4 into this ecosystem as well.

We will have to wait and see how this will end.
