The game might have been out for quite a while now, but players are still wondering if Warzone supports cross-platform play. So what's the answer?

I have no idea why, after over 2 years, there are still players who are wondering whether Warzone supports cross-play, or cross-platform, or whether it is free… By now, that should be clear, seriously guys, Warzone 2 is on the horizon. We don't want to be a bunch of prudes, though, so here are the answers to those questions.

Is Warzone Cross-Platform?

Yes, Warzone is cross-platform. Warzone has always – since its release on March 10, 2020 – been cross-platform and had cross-play. In more detail, this means that PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5 can all play together. There is also cross-progress, which means that your progress in the game will be carried over if you switch from PC to console, or vice-versa.

Can You Turn Off Cross-Platform in Warzone?

If you don't want to play cross-platform, you can deactivate cross-play in the menu at any time. This is only available on PlayStation, though, with PC and Xbox players unfortunately unable to activate/deactivate this option. Since cheaters are particularly active on PC, it can make sense for PlayStation players to deactivate cross-play. This does, however, also mean that you will no longer be able to play with your buddies on Xbox or PC.

How To Deactivate Cross-Platform on PlayStation

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to the “Account” tab
  • Set “Crossplay” to “Disabled”

How Do I Add a Player from Another Platform?

If you want to play with a friend on another platform, you have to add him to your friends list with his Activision ID. On PC, friends can also be added via their ID, but if you want to add an Xbox or PlayStation player, it must be the Activision ID.

  • Go to "Social" in the menu
  • Select "Invite Friends"
  • Select "Enter Activision Account to Invite"
  • Enter your friend's Activision ID (e.g. PlayerName #1234567) and send the invitation

Well, we've said everything there is to say now about cross-platform and cross-play in Warzone. If you have any further questions, though, let us know.
