This was an exchange of emails from 2018 in which Epic Games and SIE planned to announce cross-play for the popular Battle Royale. The former suggested that when they announced the cross-play feature, it would make the SIE look good on looking “ like heroes. ” It was believed that SIE did not like the idea of cross play.
In exchange for approving cross-play feature, SIE would get a lot of data and marketing data they asked for. It was also revealed that Epic Games offered to promote all of their E3 content with PlayStation.
