Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Dev “Still Figuring Out” If Cross-Platform Progression Will Be Supported
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Activision recently got a whole lot of fans excited when it confirmed that the game will support full cross-platform play between PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, which marks the first time in the series’ history that players across the platforms will be able to play both with and against each other. While the premise itself is certainly exciting enough, it appears that the developer is still ironing out some of the details, including the prospect of cross-platform progression.
The question recently came up in a Twitter conversation between a fan and Joe Cecot, co-design director of multiplayer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Cecot was asked whether or not cross-platform progression would be a thing, which essentially would mean that if a reaches, say, ‘level 10’ on PC, they’d be able to pick up where they left off if they switched to the PlayStation 4 version of the game. Unfortunately, Cecot didn’t have much of an answer for him, saying that they’re “still figuring this out.”
Still figuring this out. More info to come in the future!

The good news is that at the very least, Activision is considering it, otherwise Joe Cecot’s answer likely would’ve been a bit more definitive. That said, the dev may still be trying to decide if cross-platform progression is even worth the hassle for a Call of Duty game, as there may not be a widespread need for such a feature. Still, if they can do it, may as well, right?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
