Fortnite Console Crossplay

Console Makers refuse to allow platform crossplay for Fortnite and other games.
Crossplay is the ability to play games with friends and family across the world while on different video games systems. Console makers Sony (PlayStation 4) and Microsoft (Xbox One) have not worked together in the past to allow the free flow of gaming across consoles. As such have left the consumer at a disadvantage. They have discriminated against each other at the cost of the consumer when they have in fact allowed crossplay amongst their systems, PCs, Apple Computers, and mobile devices. As such one would be able to play on their Xbox, and with two friends on a PC and Mobile device respectively, but not with a friend on a PS4.
A catalyst for this shift should be the game 'Fortnite'. Microsoft and Epic games, the creator of the game, have expressed the desire to allow crossplay amongst consoles, mobile devices, and computers. The software is supposedly in place and would require the approval from Sony, Microsoft, and Epic for activation. This game has personally reconnected me with many friends and family, albeit only the half that is on my console of choice. We should not allow a company to hold us as consumers hostage.
Please see here for an article of Sony's motto "For the Players" and the supposition that they are blocking their players' ability to play with friends and family.
