The details about Modern Warfare II are here, and I couldn’t be more excited!! However, before I tell you anything else about the game, the essential thing you should know is that this game is going to be lit!

The recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II game is developed by Infinity Ward; the expectations are high for this game because it is the sequel to the 2019 Call of Duty reboot. The producers, Activision, want this game to be a hit as a ‘new era’ game of the series.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II was out on October 28 across various platforms, including Xbox One, Xbox Series X and X, PS4, PS5, and PC. And it is also available on Stream, which will cost you $70.

The game is built on state-of-the-art principles because it is built on one unified engine. This engine will later be used for all the Call of Duty titles.

The game revolves around Captain Price as he builds his task force 141 (the same one from the original series).

So, now you can be happy just like me because Captain Price will enlist all your favorite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II characters for another fantastic story.

The game will start three years after the 2019 Call of Duty rebooted game, with the task force wholly formed and working worldwide.

However, this time the iconic characters of Simon Riley, John MacTavish, and Kyle Garrick are also in the force.

The best thing about this game is that it features raids. This will allow the players to have a puzzle-solving experience in a co-op style.

Because according to Activision, the puzzles in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II require ‘teamwork and strategic puzzle-solving skills, especially between intense fights.

Now that we know all the important things about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, there is still one important question left:

Is Call of Duty Modern Warfare II Cross Platform?

The excellent news for all the users is that just like other games of the Call of Duty series, this game also supports cross platform progression and cross platform play.

The Infinity Ward multiplayer game urges all Call of Duty players to play it as multiplayer with friends and other opponents on various platforms to enjoy the game to its fullest.

However, there is a catch for the PC and Xbox users; if you are playing on either of these platforms, you won’t be able to turn it off in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

Now, I understand that this might not seem like a big issue to you (especially if you like squad-ing up with your friends or family to play on consoles.

But some PC players like to play with their friends on the same platform. So we also know that it is crucial to use the cross platform if you are willing to enjoy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Spec Ops.

I think the game should have been made in such a way that everyone plays it according to their convenience, so creators should consider adding a ‘turn-off’ option on crossplay in the game.

Since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II crossplay has rutted players on PC against console by default, it is totally understandable that some users might want to turn it off because of aim assist on the console.

However, I can’t say that this feature wasn’t and will not be available in the future because, in the beginning, in the network settings of the beta, there was a toggle-able option to either disable or enable the crossplay on all platforms.

But now that the beta has been removed, so is the option on PC and Xbox. There is no way of knowing whether this is an error or if the creators did it deliberately because there has yet to be an announcement regarding it.

So, what you can do if you are a PC or Xbox player is to check the account and network setting every time the game updates to ensure that the setting is back or not.

Final Verdict:

This was everything I knew about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (cross-play or not), and this guide will help you in learning about your favorite game more.

Now that you have the green signal that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is cross-play, cross-generation compatible, and also cross-platform, along with having cross-progression; you can enjoy the game with your friends and then also save your progress on different systems; so that you may continue where you left off.

But, before playing cross-platform, you need to buy the games on all the platforms that you and your friends plan on playing.

So, don’t wait; turn on your systems and call your friends for a fantastic cross-platform experience.

Happy playing to you!
