Call of Duty Vanguard is the next main entry in the long-running first-person shooter franchise from Activision. Every year, a new Call of Duty title is released, with a campaign, and multiplayer mode, with a few exceptions. This entry is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind Advanced Warframe, WWII, and the recent Modern Warfare. However, is Call of Duty Vanguard Cross Platform? That’s a fair question, considering how many platforms it’s coming out on. Here is everything you need to know about it.
This year, we’ll be seeing new entries from Call of Duty, Battlefield, and even Halo. The last few months of the year are amazing for fans of the franchises, and shooters in general.
Is Call of Duty Vanguard Cross Platform?
Call of Duty Vanguard is releasing on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PS4, and the PS5. That is a lot of platforms, meaning different players are linking their Activision account to different services. However, you’ll be glad to know, that like many previous Call of Duty titles, Call of Duty Vanguard supports cross platform play as well.
This means that you can play with your friends, whether they are on PC, current-gen consoles, or even next-gen consoles. Activision has confirmed this in their official FAQ for the upcoming title. You can read the relevant excerpt below.
Will Call of Duty: Vanguard support cross-play and cross-progression? Yes, Call of Duty: Vanguard is cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-generation enabled. If you upgrade to a next-generation console, your profile, progression, stats, and digital content will move with you as long as you continue playing on the same Activision account. The entire community across PlayStation (PS4, PS5), Xbox (Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S), and PC (Battle.net) can party up and play together
This is a great decision from Activision as it will give players the freedom to buy the game wherever they want and enjoy the experience with their friends across platforms.
