Between Consoles and if PC comes in to the mix, yes it is a good thing i.e. Rocket League.

With other games like COD for PC no idea if cross play with Xbox / PS4 will happen due to various reasons but, that'll be down to the Devs and if it can be done.

For example Elite Dangerous on PC is not cross play with Xbox and or PS4 due to updates that require certification from the Console Owners.
This is down to patches that are released on PC first and the versions being different to console, they do share the same background simulation, they just can't interact.

Xbox and PlayStation gamers have been playing together in likes of Fortnite, Dauntless, Rocket League and Paladins for sometime now. SMITE got cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation last month, with PUBG, Realm Royale and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare doing it this month. It has been going so smoothly to the point I doubt the majority even know they are playing with or against gamers on a different console.

Obviously Xbox, Switch and PC have been doing it for longer with the likes of Sea of Thieves and Minecraft.

From what I have heard about Gears 5 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, console and PC gamers play together when using a controller. If you are mouse/keyboard then you can only play against others using a mouse/keyboard.

I think cross-play is extremely important for the future of gaming! You look at the likes of Battleborn and Evolve that are currently on life support. Obviously smaller indie games with online multiplayer but struggling to make up the numbers. There have been so many games that have closed down online multiplayer and hopefully cross-play will help keep these games alive.

Totally agree, x platform was only ever a way of monopolising, opening it up makes it so much better...as long as keyboard advantage is controlled of course
