Today, Nintendo announced during its E3 press conference that Epic Games’ Fortnite would be coming to the Switch console. This sparked some question about weather Switch players will be able to cross-play with those on other platforms.

Epic Games PR representative Nick Chester confirmed on Twitter that the Switch version of Fortnite will support cross-play with Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile. Basically, you’ll be able to play with everyone except PlayStation 4 players. Sony is blocking other console platforms from playing with its own, both Nintendo Switch and the Xbox. Sony only allows cross-play between PS4, mobile, and PC.

Not only is Sony blocking cross-play they're blocking PS4 players from linking their Epic Games' account to other consoles, essentially making your account locked to the PS4. This means you won’t be able to have any weekly progress carry over or gain access to any of your skins or emotes.
