Suspicion was raised by redditor PRE_-CISION-_, after they spotted a Gamertag with a space in it. PS4 does not allow spaces in PSN names.
After this news came to light, many other threads started popping up on the official subReddit, confirming similar encounters.
As of yet, we're unsure if this is a bug or a newly introduced (and hidden) feature. Conversely, Xbox gamer tags can't have underscores.

An Epic spokesperson confirmed to Ars Technica that cross-console play had been turned on for the game recently, adding in the same breath that the addition had been a mistake. "We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected", is what Epic stated, meaning this issue wasn't an act of defiance or anything malicious. (Microsoft declined to comment for this article and Sony has not responded to a request for comment).
In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Sony head of global sales and marketing Jim Ryan described Sony's stance against cross-console play as "a commercial discussion between ourselves and our stakeholders" and "not a profound philosophical stance". "I don't know why that has to become the dialogue", he said.
