Recently there were rumours circulating that Sony may be considering the move in order to satisfy fans of the popular battle royale game.

Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida has now shut the rumours down when speaking with the Independent saying:

“On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PlayStation 4 is the best experience for users, that’s our belief. But actually, we already opened some games as cross-platform with PC and some others, so we decide based on what is the best user experience. That is our way of thinking for cross-platform.”

Kenichiro Yoshida didn’t rule out cross-play for other games in the future but for Fortnite it seems

Switch fans are particularly angry with the situation as when moving your epic account from PS4 to Nintendo Switch they found that they couldn’t load up their details and had to start their progression from scratch.

Season 6 is going to be looking a little bit bleaker for Fortnite fans.
