    Microsoft's push of forcing crossplay between PC and Xbox is ruining multiplayer gaming


    The fact that Microsoft as a company is pushing forced crossplay isn't debatable any more.

    COD: Warzone lets you disable crossplay on PS4/PS5, not on Xbox

    Battlefield 2042 lets you disable crossplay on PS4/PS5, not on Xbox

    Now Halo: Infinite has forced crossplay

    This isn't a mystery any more, this is a business decision by Microsoft to integrate Game Pass and the Xbox ecosystem into their PC player base, it has nothing to do with the publisher or the dev of the games. And it is completely ruining multiplayer gaming. F2P Halo is going to be the next victim of having hacker infested lobbies on Xbox always one step ahead of expensive anti cheat efforts.

    Nobody wants this. Xbox players don't want it because of hackers ruining their games and PC players don't want this due to aim assist. This is a blatantly anti consumer policy to force these into our games and it has forced me and my friends to all buy PS5s to play Warzone and other upcoming games without crossplay turned on. If you click on my profile you'll see that I complained about this same thing in May 2020 when I first saw the writing on the wall.

    PC vs Console is a ridiculous proposition and always has been. Please rethink this for the sake of your community. Thanks.

    Microsoft's push of forcing crossplay between PC and Xbox is ruining multiplayer gaming

    Hi thanks for the reply

    Unfortunately disabling crossplay in system options results in not being able to find any games during matchmaking, forced me to turn it back on in Warzone last year. So this isn't viable for anyone.

    Since I got a PS5 after turning off crossplay in the game I haven't had these issues, there's always games to be found.

    On top of this people on reddit are claiming doing this for Halo doesn't actually disable crossplay there's still PC gamers in lobbies.

    The main concern is implementing the option in game. And to add insult to injury both Warzone and Battlefield have this option implemented in game but it's greyed out on the xbox version of the game. The option is there but we've been blocked from accessing it.

    Crossplay should be optional if you happen to have friends who play on PC. Console players who have been asking for crossplay were asking for Xbox vs PS crossplay.

    And you then have the racing games which can't disable crossplay. I play Forza Horizon 5 and online is littered with hackers/cheats playing on PC (although it's sometimes difficult to distinguish this from simply the game having rubbish servers). Not to mention PC players get an advantage by being able to play at higher refresh rates (the game being limited to 60fps on Xbox)

    Just seems that Microsoft has the aim to completely enmesh Xbox and Windows together irregardless of how it affects the playerbase.

    The problem is that if you look back a few years ago, everyone on the internet wanted cross-play, everyone was saying cross-play should be in every game because its better for the community (I for one never thought that because I came from a PC gaming background, so I knew first hand how bad it could be for cheating)

    Also, you say you cant disable crossplay on Xbox, you can, ive literally just googled it.

    As for Battlefield, you can.......sort of, but the problem its in the console system settings, not in the "in game" settings.

    How To Turn Off Crossplay In Battlefield (BF) 2042 Xbox One, Series X/S (gamertweak.com)

    I agree that Microsoft could do more with crossplay, I for one dont like cross play as I pretty much dont play any PVP games anyway (my reactions times arent what they used to be, so I mainly only play PVE games with my friends) but I can see how it can be annoying for PVP gamers.

    Hopefully in the next few months or so we will see patches released

    What you think

    If there is crossplay in COD I hope its only between ps4 and xbox.

    If we could crossplay with PC we would have the game ruined by modders using aimbots. Just like they ruined COD on the 360
