Activision has issued a statement to NowGamer saying that character transfer in Ghosts will be limited within console family only. It was reported previously by Mark Rubin, Executive Producer at IW, in two different interviews (NowGamer and Engadget) that character transfer would work between any platform, but now it seems like that has changed.
With the launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts, using their Call of Duty account, players will be able to carry their profile, stats and in-game progress forward and backward from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, and from PS3 to PS4. This new ability will not only allow players to further enjoy their Call of Duty: Ghosts experience regardless of whether they are playing on current gen or next gen, but also will help them seamlessly transition to next gen, within console family, when ready. Currently, we do not have the ability to allow players to transfer their information across platform between Xbox and PlayStation. We apologize for any confusion. Please check CallofDuty.com for any new updates to policies surrounding console transition.
Activision’s CM Dan Amrich tweeted saying that he confirmed internally that the feature is within a console family only back during the MP reveal event. So now you can only keep your stats from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, and also PS3 to PS4.
We’ve reached out to Activision and will update if anything changes.
