Is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 a cross-gen game?

Fortunately, the answer is yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a cross-gen game. That means that the game is available on the older generation of consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, along with the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Unfortunately, there won’t be a Nintendo Switch version of the game. So, players who are not ready to buy the current generation of consoles can get the full Call of Duty experience on their old-generation consoles without any hassle. This also applies to Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 which launches on November 16 this year.

Moreover, if players with older consoles want to play Modern Warfare 2 with players from newer consoles, they can do that through the crossplay feature. Through this, they can play the game regardless of platform or console generation. Adding to that, if players decide to move to the newer generation of consoles i.e. the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, then they can do that with the help of cross-progression. All their progress and achievements from their old consoles can be transferred to the newer ones. As such, they won’t have to worry about losing all their hard-earned progress and starting all over again.
