Even the Tekken 7 development team wants cross-network play for their upcoming fighting game. Over on Twitter, a fan asked Tekken 7 game designer Michael Murray if cross-network play would be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC users. Murray swiftly responded by saying to “please ask Sony,” and that Microsoft had already publicly stated that they were interested in cross-network play for the game.

Aside from this particular fighting game, there have been a couple of other games that both fans and devs alike felt would work really well with cross-network play. Both Psyonix and CD Projekt RED have stated that they’re really hoping to include that function for Rocket League and Gwent, but that decision would ultimately be left up to Sony.
With another big triple-A title coming into play here, perhaps this could be the final push that Sony needs to give the go-ahead for the cross-network play that fans seems to so desperately want.
Tekken 7 is slated for a 2017 release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
