Is there still a chance for cross-platform?

Had a discussion on Twitch chat recently and stumbled across this:

"In March 2016, Microsoft announced a new initiative to open up the Xbox One to cross-platform play to Windows users without the use of Xbox Live services. The first game under this initiative was Rocket League, allowed users using the Steam-enabled version to play with those on Xbox Live, starting in May 2016, Microsoft invited other online networks to participate as well. Sony responded by saying they are open to having discussions for cross-platform play in light of this invitation. Yoshida noted that while connecting the PlayStation networks to the PC is straightforward given the openness of the computer's platform, connection to the Xbox platform requires them to think about the nature of connecting two closed systems. Yoshida considered that the primary challenge would be policy- and business-related rather than any technical challenge, but are open to working out cross-platform play on a per-game basis. Both Pysonix, the developers of Rocket League, and CD Projekt, the developers of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, stated they have made all the technical requirements to enable cross-platform play between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and would only require Sony's authorization to activate these within a matter of hours." ... o_consoles

Sounds like there's a chance now?
