April 20, 2023: In Season 3, does MW2 have crossplay features? Find all the intel in our guide.

In recent years, the idea of playing the same game regardless of the platform has skyrocketed in popularity with many triple-A franchises adopting the feature to unite their communities. With the Modern Warfare 2 cycle in full swing, many are wondering if Modern Warfare 2 crossplay will cause any problems.

So far, players across all platforms have the ability to join forces and drop into the action. As expected, there are a few teething issues that continue appearing and impact players.

Crossplay in Call of Duty made its debut in 2019's Modern Warfare and continues to feature in order to enable players to play with or against each other whether they're on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. So, will Modern Warfare 2 feature crossplay? Here's everything we know.

Does Modern Warfare 2 have crossplay?

Modern Warfare 2 does contain crossplay, allowing all platforms to drop into the action together.

Considering crossplay has featured in the last three Call of Duty titles, removing it would mark a backward step for the franchise. It's no surprise to see the feature make a return after the hugely positive reception it received when it first arrived in 2019.

How to disable Modern Warfare 2 crossplay

If you're on PlayStation and don't want to play against anyone on Xbox or PC, you can disable Modern Warfare 2 crossplay. Here's what you need to do:

  • Load into Modern Warfare 2
  • Select the 'Options' menu
  • Head to the 'Account' tab
  • Change Crossplay from 'Enabled' to 'Disabled'

The same method applies to Xbox and PC users who want to match players on the same platform. Switching off crossplay is great if Modern Warfare 2 experiences any bugs as it won't impact your experience if you run into a PC player glitching all over the place.

Modern Warfare 2 Season Three

With crossplay fully functioning, attention is turning to the third season of post-launch content making its way to multiplayer. Although there's no official confirmation, leaks claim Season Three will start much sooner than expected. An initial start date is March 15 but this could all change.

There's still a while before Infinity Ward starts revealing more information on the new season, so make sure you take leaks with a pinch of salt before further confirmation emerges.
