It is not certain, and has never been done before with a Call of Duty title, but the community is calling for crossplay!

We would love to see it too. Crossplay would help Call of Duty compete with the Fortnites and PUBGs of the world. Battle Royale games have seemingly taken over the shooter landscape. 

It is going to be interesting to see at launch whether or not Black Ops IV will peel away some of the player bases that Fortnite and PUBG have locked down at the moment. It has been quite some time since they have taken over and no major shooting game has been dropped since.

It seems Fortnite may have revolutionized the landscape of online gaming with the introduction of cross play (even though we know rocket league was the first!) and we hope to continue seeing it in many if not all games to come.

Slaying zombies with ALL of your friends and family would be great, wouldn’t it?

How can crossplay help?

I know I’m not the only person who has bought the same game 2 or 3 times in the past so that I could play with all of my friends. It isn’t fun. Usually, you have to reset your progress, having 3 accounts at varying levels and gear. When you mix in microtransactions that you may have purchased, it is even worse.

I can tell you personally, from my own experience, that playing being able to play Fortnite from my PC with all of my friends who mostly own Xbox One and One X makes me play more and enjoy it more (even though they all live in fear of playing with PC players, lol) I love being able to take advantage of the PC capabilities in the graphics and frame rate dept. without having to re-purchase an Xbox One X.

Even if system lock is still kept in play as a primary option, Cross-platform play for Black Ops 4 would be a great thing for us to have from a user position.

It is just an all around a community-benefitting decision that will increase user satisfaction and make everyone happy. Will money get in the way of this?

Will crossplay come into play if Call of Duty doesn’t get the players it wants? Only time will tell!

We are going to continue to follow Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as news comes out and we will be sure to keep you updated with the latest.

Until next time,
