If you are wondering whether Warzone 2 is cross-platform and supports crossplay, you have come to the right place. Here's what you can expect.
Warzone 2 is just around the corner and we all can't wait to dive into the sequel of the incredibly successful Call of Duty Battle Royale from 2020. Since Warzone 2 will once again follow the typical Battle Royale formula, we will of course be able to jump into the action as a squad with our best buddies. And of course, this begs the question: does Warzone 2 have crossplay? Can I play Warzone on PC with my buddies on PlayStation and Xbox?
Warzone 2: Crossplay & Cross-Platform likely
Yes, just like Warzone, Warzone 2 will probably support cross-play and cross-platform. This means that players can play Warzone 2 with friends on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PS5. There will also be cross-progression again, so you can take your game progress with you whenever you switch from PC to console or similar.
If you ask us, crossplay is also imperative to the success of a battle royale. After all, a lot of players are needed for each lobby and since many game modes are designed for squads of up to four players, it makes matchmaking much easier when all platforms can play together. There's no question that Warzone 2 will once again have the eternal discussion about Aim Assist on consoles and cheats on PC, but it's worth it to me if I can play with my buddies on the console.
Remember those badass guns?
How To Deactivate Crossplay In Warzone 2
We don't know yet if crossplay can be deactivated, but we strongly assume that it can. In the original Warzone, crossplay can be disabled at any time in the menu, at least on the PlayStation, as follows:
- Go to Settings
- Go to the “Account” tab
- Set “Crossplay” to “Disabled”
On Xbox and PC, you can also deactivate this option, but you will be asked to reactivate it in matchmaking. We strongly assume that the option to deactivate crossplay will be available again in Warzone 2 and hope that it will also work on PC and Xbox.
How To 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 Battle.net ID (in Warzone 2 maybe Steam works as well), 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
That's all there is to say about crossplay in Warzone 2. Clear out your hard drive and tell your buddies, Warzone 2 will most likely release on November 16.
