Xbox and PC players quickly discover they can’t disable crossplay in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. Activision’s latest Duty This episode launched early this morning, with PlayStation players free to enable or disable crossplay. Xbox and PC players are rightly not happy about this.
There are several reasons why Xbox players want to disable crossplay, including trying to stay away from PC cheerers or simply avoiding PC players with the mobility benefits of mouse and keyboard. Likewise, PC players often want to steer clear of controller players and their aiming aid.
It’s the same in Call of Duty: Warzone for Xbox players
We’ve been here before with Duty, at. Xbox players still frustrated by forced crossplay in Call of Duty: Warzone. While there is a crossplay toggle in the settings menu on Xbox, once you try to load a playlist it will force you to disable crossplay, while on PlayStation you can simply ignore the prompt and move on to the playlist with still crossplay handicapped.
There are ways around this in an Xbox’s system settings, but it doesn’t always work, and Xbox players often have large matchmaking queues instead.
We’ve previously contacted Activision about this forced crossplay and the differences between Xbox and PlayStation, but the company has not commented. We’ve been in touch again and we’ll keep you posted if we ever hear back.
