Call of Duty: Modern Warfare may allow cross-progression between platforms. Players are reporting that their progress on one platform in the beta – including levels and progression– moves with them to a different platform.
It appears that those who link their Xbox Live, PSN, and Battle.net accounts to the Call of Duty accounts themselves are able to have their progress move between systems. That would be a very big deal, as this level of freedom to move between competing platforms is rare.
GameSpot tested this, and it appears to work. I played the first beta on PlayStation 4 and logged into the current beta on Xbox One, I found all of my progression ̵
Officially , Activision has only confirmed that Modern Warfare has cross-play that allows people on competing systems to play against each other. The current Modern Warfare beta, which runs through September 23, features cross-play support.
According to CharlieIntel, developer Infinity Ward said it was "exploring" the possibility of cross-progression, but this has not been confirmed as of yet beyond these initial user reports. GameSpot has contacted Activision in an attempt to get more details, but again, we found cross-saves to be enabled using the method mentioned above between PS4 and Xbox One. Whether or not this works between console and PC is unknown. Also unclear if this cross-save feature is only available for the beta or if it will be available in the full game.
Cross-progression is a user-friendly feature because it means players can move freely between platforms with confidence Of knowing they won't have to start over. Platform-holders like Sony and Microsoft have traditionally not allowed this because they have historically wanted players to stay on their platform.
Bungie's sci-fi shooter Destiny 2 recently rolled out a cross-save feature, and we found it to be a great new feature.
The new Modern Warfare launches on October 25 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
