Xbox Live is the only network that allows spaces in gamertags. Conversely, Xbox gamer tags can't have underscores.

Also, Psyonix Studios, the creator of Rocket League is ready to enable cross-play if Sony ever signs off on it.

Suspicion was raised by redditor PRE_-CISION-_, after they spotted a Gamertag with a space in it. PS4 does not allow spaces in PSN names.

Sadly, Kotaku reports, it was a mistake on the developers part, rather than a new feature. In the time since then, more posts have been made to the Fortnite subreddit, including this one from a father-son duo that shows them playing in the same match even though one is using a PS4 and the other is using an Xbox One.

Immediately, he found the player, whose achievements indicated that he owned Fortnite.

So far, Epic Games has yet to confirm or deny that it has implemented cross-console play in Fortnite.

Although no prior announcement or information was revealed by the publisher, multiple instances of players reporting cross-play between the XB1 and PS4 have been unveiled. Ryan added, "To my knowledge, there is no live conversation [about cross-console play] ongoing at the moment".
