After launching on March 10th for free regardless of if you own Modern Warfare or not, Call of Duty Warzone has been a big success with the new battle royale pulling in a tonne of players across all different platforms. Thanks to Warzone’s crossplay, friends from console and PC can play together, just as it should be.
However, if you don’t want to take part in crossplay, there is the option to disable it in Warzone, though this is unfortunately only available on PS4, something that isn’t officially mentioned anywhere.
Warzone has cross-play enabled by default, meaning that you may end up going up against PC players, though it does try to match you against those using a controller rather than a mouse and keyboard on PC.
To disable crossplay in Call of Duty Warzone, you will need to go to your options from the main menu.
Then scroll to the right until you reach “Account“.
Scroll down and then change “Crossplay” to “Disabled“. This will turn off crossplay in Call of Duty Warzone, as well as the wider Modern Warfare experience.
You can also turn off “Crossplay Communication” if you just don’t want to chat to other players on other platforms, though we don’t get why you would want this.
Be advised that Warzone will then try and pool you only with other players without crossplay, which may lead to much longer waiting times to find a match. You will also not be able to link up with friends on other platforms.
As for why you can only disable Warzone crossplay on PS4, it’s a weird one. It may have something to do with Sony’s exclusivity deal with Activision (a pretty anti-consumer deal at that), though it may just be a simple oversight by those involved.
Call of Duty Warzone is free-to-play on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
