Random ‘Fortnite’ Matchmaking Between Switch and Xbox, PS4 Not Supported Anymore

Fortnite patch notes v8.10 The Baller cross-play matchmaking changes

The Block in Fortnite is updated every week, so we expect to see one of these creations to take place of Turtle Temple within the next few days. Do you even play this game? Opt out of cross-play, and you'll only have access to Creative Mode and Playgrounds.

The community discovered in the patch notes that players on Switch will no longer be matched up against Xbox One and PS4 users moving forward and will instead face off against mobile and tablet users instead.

Prior to this update, solo Switch players were able to play with and against users on rival platforms and now owners of Nintendo's hybrid device will be limited to the mobile pool, fighting to the end for a battle royale victory against iOS and Android users.

Combined Mobile and Switch pools. "Fortnite" on Switch is 30 FPS rather than 60 FPS that Xbox One and PS4 players experience.

We've seen many users express concern about this, and Epic Games made a decision to modify cross-play a little.

Motivating factor is unlocking optimization potential allowing us to run more playlists during more hours of the day while supporting more data center locations. Now the developer has revealed they'll be introducing an "undo" button to the store page in a future update.Players have a fixed number of lifetime refund tokens. Though some have mentioned that they felt that console to PC pairings were unfair due to the difference in controls, the Switch to other platforms difference isn't enough to justify the alienation.

It's a move that makes a lot of sense from a hardware perspective.
