With 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Activision introduced cross-play to the CoD series, allowing friends to group up and play together no matter what platform they were on.

The boundaries of the console wars were broken down, letting Xbox friends team up with PS4 players and Battle.net pals alike. It set a precedent moving forward for gamers everywhere.

With the announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, many were wondering if cross-play will be back. Thankfully, Activision had an answer on the day that the game debuted.
