The launch of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has occurred today, although for a few days the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Early Access was already available, showing us once again what Activision and the studios behind the development are capable of. But as expected, with the launch it has not only been discovered that PlayStation has exclusive extra advantages, but that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 crossplay on Xbox and PC cannot be disabled.
Thanks to our colleagues from TheVerge, we have learned that the crossplay of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox and PC cannot be deactivated, thus being an exclusive function of Sony consoles. Of course, there are several reasons why Xbox gamers want to disable crossplay, since it is the only option to avoid the cheaters found on PC and the mobility benefits of playing with a mouse and keyboard. At the same time, PC gamers also prefer to keep console gamers away because of auto-aiming on many occasions.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 crossplay on Xbox and PC cannot be disabled
On Xbox, this isn’t exactly news, as in Call of Duty: Warzone, players can’t disable crossplay. However, in Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard, the option has been available. Luckily there is a way to disable crossplay at the system level on Xbox consoles, but that means we’ll be disabling crossplay in all games.
- Go to ‘Settings’ on your Xbox console
- Select ‘Account’ > ‘Privacy and online safety’ > ‘Xbox Privacy’
- Choose ‘View details and customize’ > ‘Communication and multiplayer’
- Next, under the heading “You can join cross-network play”, change the option from “Allow” to “Block”.
