Sony has moved PlayStation 4 cross-play out of beta stage, which means that the feature is now available for developers to use in their games.

PlayStation 4 gamers have long clamored for wider availability of the cross-play feature, which included games such as Fortnite and Rocket League in its beta phase.

There was even a time when players thought that the console would never get the feature, as Sony intentionally disabled cross-platform play so as not to lose out on sales.

Better late than never for the PlayStation 4, though Sony did not explicitly announce the cross-play feature’s exit from beta.

The news was buried within a Wired article that mostly focused on the PlayStation Now subscription service and cloud gaming.

“While it’s not announcing the news explicitly, the PS4’s cross-play efforts have officially moved out of the beta stage, meaning that the console can support cross-play on any titles that studios provide the functionality for,” according to Wired.
