The game will come to ps4... Many compnay like sony and DEEPSILVER publish games on behalf of smash dev teams to give feedback and help the company work on the game to run best on the console. Thats why it is a CONSOLE LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE. It will come to ps4 after xbox one in 6months- 1 year

Most likely. Although Sony's move to deny cross play might discourage some developers from wanting to work with them.

Not really

I don't see any developer caring.

They make games to sell. They could care less about cross play bud. I don't know 1 developer that feels the feature is more important then the damn game or making money.

Sony has also done cross play the most, the longest and on more systems.

LoL you wont see xbox and pc crossplay on this. PC people would rekt xbox kids

For those saying Cross Play isn't possible doesn't understand how matchmaking works. If they add controller support to the PC version there is no reason they can match make based on the play type. Cross play is the future of MP.

"I don't see any developer caring"

Developers also make their games to be played for as long as possible, especially when it comes to multiplayer titles. Cross play would very easily extend the lifespan of any game simply by bolstering the number of players that can play together.

Take Titanfall 2 for example - great game, but it released in a terrible window, and doesn't have as many players as it could/should. If there are 700 players on Xbox One and 700 on PS4, would you rather play with just the 700, or with 1400? Doubling the player base would make for quicker loading times and more populated playlists. It's a no-brainer.

Developers absolutely want games to sell. But they also want games to be played. Games are an interactive medium - you want people actively interacting with your product almost as much as you want them purchasing it.

Also:

"I don't see any developer caring"

"Sony has also done cross play the most, the longest and on more systems"

If no developers care, then why is it being done at all?

You guys actually think devs are stupid enough to say they will not bring their games to a platform with 60 million people, just because Sony says no to cross play with MS? Really, no honestly really? Yes am sure some devs stopped bringing their games to Xbox 360 when MS rejected cross play with Sony last gen? Right? A game company is in business to make money and they are not going to leave out the platform with the most people.

Hasn't really gone well for most companies that align themselves with Microsoft so best of luck Bluehole.

I think they picked the wrong horse.

I can't stand these play on words. Hopefully i live to see the day where companies can just speak the true true..
Otherwise why even listen anymore or care about anything they say?

That's kind of like saying "I'm waiting for hell to freeze over".
