Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Will Support Crossplay Between PC and Console, Won’t Include a Season Pass
Call of Duty is finally spurning the season pass model with Modern Warfare in addition to introducing crossplay functionality.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was just announced officially mere moments ago and already, some major details about this year’s installment in the series have started to come about.
This time around, it seems that Activision will be shaking things up quite drastically compared to previous Call of Duty games. In a statement from Charlie Intel, it was confirmed by Infinity Ward’s Creative Director Patrick Kelly that Modern Warfare will support both crossplay and will not include a season pass. Both of these changes for Call of Duty are pretty monumental for the franchise.
Kelly’s full statement about the change this year said the following:
“Every design decision has been made with our players in mind. With the launch of Modern Warfare, we’re taking steps to unite the community. First, we plan for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Second, we’re eliminating the traditional season pass, so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players. This is just the beginning – there’s much more to come.”
In recent years, other publishers have started to shy away from the season pass model with their multiplayer games in pursuit of keeping the entire community together. It seems that Activision has finally decided that this is the best course of action with Call of Duty in 2019 as well and has decided to go down that same route. As for the crossplay feature, this is something that many fans have been asking about for quite some time. To see it finally being implemented is definitely a positive.
There’s still a whole lot more we’ll likely learn about Modern Warfare as the day goes on, so stay tuned. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25.
