NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced they are testing out the crossplay (or 'Krossplay', as it's been dubbed) feature.
A tweet from NetherRealm explained: "Keep in mind, this is currently in beta form so please bear with us as we continue to work on it.
"Stay tuned for more details and timing on Krossplay availability."

The tweet also linked through to WB Games' Mortal Kombat 11 Krossplay FAQ, which went into a little more detail.
The FAQ reads: "We are testing out a feature in Mortal Kombat 11 that will put PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players into the same matchmaking pool for Online Kasual game modes.
"PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will also have the option of manually joining the same designated Krossplay Online Rooms to play against each other."
While the exact date of its availability has not been confirmed yet, we do know a little about how it's going to work.
The FAQ post continues to say that, if a player has the Krossplay feature toggle turned on, they can play against others on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One in two ways.
The first: "Whenever players matchmake in Online Kasual modes, the game will now look for the best match across prospective PlayStation 4 and Xbox players."
And the second: "Designated Krossplay Online Rooms will provide a central location for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players to manually meet up and fight against other players on opposite platforms in Online Kasual game modes.
"Please note, friends on opposite platforms will need [to] coordinate outside of the game ecosystem, then meet up in a specific Krossplay Online Room to play against each other."
Currently, the Krossplay feature in Mortal Kombat 11 is only available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players, with the FAQ post saying it will not support PC, Nintendo Switch or Stadia 'at this time'.
