During Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer reveal Infinity Ward and Activision officially confirmed the crossplay support for all platforms - PC, PS4 and Xbox One - on launch. The feature will be tested in one of the beta tests.

Infinity Ward and Activision have finally revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer gameplay and also offered a ton of new details about the new features and changes.

One of the biggest additions to Call of Duty franchise is crossplay support, which will be available on all platforms at launch. This means that PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will finally be able to play Call of Duty together, without issues according to the devs.

As you may recall, crossplay support for Modern Warfare was teased by one of the developers on Twitter earlier this year. Furthermore, several leaks also claimed that Infinity Ward are indeed working on cross-play support for all platforms but it was unclear if the feature will be ready for launch.

Fortunately, it is coming on 25 October 2019 when Modern Warfare is scheduled to release. At the moment, the details about crossplay are pretty scarce but by the looks of it, Infinity Ward are going for the full support, meaning that they are trying to minimise the differences between platforms down to zero.

While cross-play support is seen as a welcomed feature, many players are still against it. This is of course, due to a big advantage that PC players have over others - mouse and keyboard. There's also the notorious aim assist on controllers, which surely won't please PC players.

Anyway, it won't be long before we get to see just how exactly cross-play works in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Activision and Infinity Ward will host several closed and open beta tests from 12 to 23 September 2019 and one of the tests will be focused solely on crossplay support.
