Right now, it seems that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II players that are playing on either an Xbox console or PC are being forced into cross-play with other platforms when playing the game online.
Released yesterday, Modern Warfare II allows its users on PlayStation to choose whether their online sessions are populated by other players on PlayStation consoles or if they’re also happy to engage with those playing on an Xbox or on a PC. While cross-play is great for being able to get into a game with friends regardless of platform, it’s natural that some may prefer to keep the playing field more level when it comes to the input devices others are using in the same game – a keyboard and mouse, for instance.
Lol my article on "how to block cross play on Xbox" from 2021 is trending on our traffic system.
It's almost as if competing against mouse and keyboard players in Call of Duty isn't fun ?
Those on Xbox can disable cross-play functionality at a system level, but that’s a global setting that affects every game played on the console. It’s unclear at this stage whether cross-play is permanently unavailable on these other platforms, though past history in Call of Duty titles would suggest it could simply arrive late.
We recently reviewed the campaign portion of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, scoring it a 7/10 and saying, “As a sequel to the Modern Warfare reboot, Modern Warfare 2 feels like both a celebration of the series’ original trilogy as well as “the team” at its core.”
