Xbox Announces Cross-Network Play

During GDC, Microsoft has announced a highly anticipated feature for both Xbox and PC players: Cross-Network Play.

Here’s an excerpt from the Xbox Blog:

“First, in addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well. This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks – including other console and PC networks.”

The post then continues to explain how developers will freely be able to use this feature:

“…it’s up to game developers to support this feature, and Xbox Live players will always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players.”

The first game to take advantage of this feature will be Rocket League.
