[email protected] director, Chris Charla announced on Xbox Wire this morning that the new initiative will be first introduced in Rocket League. Xbox Live will now allow Xbox players to play games cross-platform with PC and PlayStation 4 gamers.

However, there is a caveat. This new service¬†won’t apply to all games, “it’s up to game developers to support this feature,” noted Charla¬†in the statement. If you aren’t up for cross-network capabilities, the¬†feature is completely¬†optional and can be disabled.

As of now, PS4 and Xbox One cross-play is possible, but has yet to be confirmed. In addition to that, there are currently no other games, besides Rocket League, officially announced to support the cross-play feature.

This is exciting news for all gamers. And it’s just in time for¬†Rocket League’s¬†impending¬†Basketball mode:
