Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 crossplay can’t be disabled on PC and Xbox

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 crossplay can’t be disabled on PC and Xbox, but it can be disabled on PlayStation.

Recent entries in the Call of Duty series have offered the player the choice of whether crossplay is enabled or not.

The choice lets players choose whether they want to game with PC, PlayStation and Xbox players at the same time.

Players have discovered a workaround

If crossplay isn’t your cup of tea, you can restrict yourself to the same platform brand only. Either way, it’s nice to have the option to play multiplayer with or without crossplay enabled.

However, as reported by VGC, players have said that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 crossplay cannot be turned off on PC and Xbox.

Well, that is at least in-game. Thankfully there is a workaround, but only for Xbox, it seems.

While crossplay can’t be disabled at this time in-game for PC and Xbox, Twitter users have stated that crossplay can essentially be turned off via the Xbox console settings.

How do I turn Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 crossplay off for Xbox?

  • Go to settings on the Xbox console
  • Go to the General tab and select ‘Online safety & family
  • Select ‘Privacy & Online Safety’ then ‘Xbox Live Privacy
  • Now, select ‘View Details & Customise’, then ‘Communication & Multiplayer
  • Finally, select ‘You Can Play with People Outside Xbox Live’ and choose ‘Block’.

Sure, it’s not an ideal workaround for Xbox, but at least it will do for now until a patch arrives.

Sadly, PC players do not have the same workaround as Xbox.

With the launch of Call of Duty Warzone 2 arriving on November 16, it won’t be ideal if this crossplay issue isn’t fixed.

Hopefully, though, the developers at Infinity Ward won’t be keeping us waiting too long for a patch to fix the problem.
