Speaking with Dualshockers at Gamescom 2017 , Xbox Head of Marketing Aaron Greenberg admitted that Microsoft is in talks with Sony to bring cross-play to Minecraft. Greenberg said..
“We’re talking to them, and we’d love to have them there. […] We want to be able to unite gamers. If you put the game, the franchise and the players first, and say “listen, Minecraft players want to be able to create, share and go from device to device. If they’re at home, they may want to play on their console. If they’re at their PC, they may want to play there. If they’re out on their mobile phone, they may want to be able to experience the same, and we shouldn’t block those experiences. That’s the idea. “
