Cross over play

So if I purchase this on Epic Games Store and my friends wait until steam to purchase it. Will we be able to play together or will it be two seperate ?

That question has been asked a lot:

Tim Sweeney (Epic) has tweeted that players will indeed be able to do this. Exactly how that will work isn’t clear yet. My guess is it will involve importing your friends list from one platform to the other. We won’t actually know how well it all works until the game launches on Steam though.

Thanks ! I was digging but a lot of the stuff was from 6 months before the release of the game. Sad to not have 100% proof of it working, but like you said we don’t know until it’s actually released on steam. Thanks for digging that up for me though.
