"We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected", a representative told the website via email. Glixel reached out to Epic Games and it confirmed that while the crossplay did actually happen, it wasn't intentional.

Seeing as PS4 and Xbox One cross-play is unheard of, most users assumed that Epic had enabled cross-play with PC and the tags were simply coincidences. However, one game has already managed to enable cross-play between the two platforms. Thus, when PS4 players noticed random opponents in their matches with handles that included spaces, they knew something odd was going on. However, it seems that the developers behind Fortnite may have managed to succeed by quietly switching on cross-platform play. For a survival shooter/fort defense game like Fortnite, playing with friends can mean the difference between victory and, well, carrying three AFK strangers to victory. I'd be all in for system exclusive games if multi-platform titles had cross-network features. While players can share progression between their PC and PlayStation accounts, they can't play against players on different platforms.

Currently, there are no plans for PlayStation owners to be able to play with those on other consoles.
