Is Modern Warfare cross-platform? Current cross-play status
Cross-platform play has become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, so here is everything you need to know about it in Modern Warfare.
Cross-platform is a feature available in various titles in the Call of Duty franchise, so here is what you need to know about Modern Warfare cross-platform play.
Modern Warfare can be a ton of fun to play with friends. You and your buddies can either team up to take down opponents together or become rivals who battle each other for supremacy.
Since the game is available on various consoles, sometimes you’ll want to play with friends on a different platform.
This guide will cover everything you need to know about the Modern Warfare cross-platform feature.
Is Modern Warfare cross-platform?
Yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes with cross-platform play so that you can play with your friends on different platforms, whether you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or PC.
This works similar to the cross-platform feature in Warzone. When you’re in the social menu, you’ll be able to see players on the same platform as you displayed at the top-right hand corner of the lobby screen.
If you want to find someone on a different system, select the “add friends” option. This will allow you to search other players by their PSN ID, Xbox Live Gamertag, BattleTag, or Activision ID and take full advantage of Modern Warfare cross-platform.
You can also disable crossplay if you wish to play with friends on the same platform, but this will lead to longer waiting times in the lobby, so we don’t recommend turning off the cross-platform feature.
Cross-platform has been one of the most popular features in the Call of Duty franchise, and titles like Black Ops Cold War also have it.
We expect this feature to be a consistent part of the franchise from now on, with Call of Duty: Vanguard being the next game in the fan-favorite series to utilize the ability for players to play with each other no matter if it is PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.
