We’ve known for a while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is supporting cross-play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
It has been one of the most promoted features in the upcoming first-person shooter game from Infinity Ward and Activision. For a good reason, since it’s going to be the first triple-A multiplayer title to support it.
However, people have been rather vocal about opportunities to have cross-progression included in the game. This function means no matter what platform a player uses their profile on all of their saves are already there.
Activision and Infinity Ward have made it clear that they were exploring solutions to make it happen. It looks like they have already found them.
Reports on the Internet are claiming if you have PSN, Xbox Live and Battle.net accounts linked to your Call of Duty account, then you have universal progress. It won’t matter where the progress came from during the Modern Warfare beta now available on all the platforms.
This covers everything you might expect from the multiplayer mode, like your level, your create-a-class customizations, and all the unlocks.
It’s huge news if you consider how useful this feature could be along the entire season of CoD (where you might be willing to change your platform to play with a friend on Xbox instead of PlayStation, for example) and that MW is the first triple-A game, again, to allow that.
We’ll make sure that we report more on this as the developer reacts to these findings in the beta.
