Epic really really wanted cross-play support for Fortnite on PlayStation, so much so that the company even offered to make a virtual reality game ready for PS5 VR. After The Verge went through emails and documents unsealed in Epic and Apple’s court case, it came to light yesterday that Sony was making Epic pay for cross-play. In one of those same emails, UploadVR noticed an interesting offer that some people have glossed over: Epic was going to make a PSVR game in return for cross-play being enabled in Fortnite.
In his list of proposals, Epic’s Joe Kreiner said, “…maybe we commit to a game at the launch of your next VR platform?” Though the PS5 wasn’t named — this was in 2018, after all — Sony’s next VR headset will be whatever it’s got cooking up for the PS5.
