ID@Xbox 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:
