Microsoft's Minecraft Dungeons lacking cross-save is ridiculous

Forget the dream of buying a game license on one platform to play everywhere; I'd be willing to throw some extra cash to buy a Nintendo Switch edition of Minecraft Dungeons if I knew I could play it across my devices.

Our goal is to let everyone play together regardless of platform, and we're looking forward to enabling cross-platform play in a future free game update.

The issue: Let me play anwhere, for real Microsoft has already noted that the ability to play across devices e.g., Xbox One players vs. Nintendo Switch ones, is a feature coming in a later update.

Microsoft recently released its anticipated Minecraft Dungeons, a "causal dungeon crawler," across Xbox One, Windows 10, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.

But when a company builds a game from the ground up in this modern age and has the resources of Microsoft at its disposal, it is entirely absurd not to have this ability.
