Normally when we think of patches, they add features and enhance gameplay. Hardly so we ever see patches which take away features. Well, that’s exactly what happened with Fortnite today. The latest Fortnite patch for Xbox One removes the ability for PC gamers to join their friends on Xbox One.
Given the fact that Fortnite isn’t an Xbox Play Anywhere title, it’s unclear why PC friends could join their Xbox One counterparts in the first place. This is rather strange. Either ways, you can’t do it anymore. We’ve reached out to Microsoft for more clarification but we don’t expect a response. Maybe it was an error to begin with? From our understanding, if your game isn’t on the Windows Store, then it won’t be cross-play. We’ll let you know if we learn more about the removal of the feature.
