They should have got the cross play with the xbox users working first I guess so at least there would be people to match make with - or is this more reflective on COD IW overall? The steam usage didn't look that great either. Sick of the same old I guess!

I suspect they didn't to avoid the console players moaning about PC player's having an 'advantage'. Forza Horizon 3 cross platform online stuff works fine.

I don't think they were ever going to do that, MS tried to get crossplay going before for FPS games and it failed horribly. If CoD was the same old i'd buy it because the same old would actually be good, them not sticking to what made the franchise good is what is making their games terrible.

Is Horizons 3 worth getting on PC now? I know there were some early issues.

I haven't tested it on PC for a while. I'll try and go back to it this week and see if the teething issues are gone.

There's no way they can cross-play an FPS on PC/Console, it just won't be fair.

You only have to look at the different playstyles for things like the Division which shows just how different PVP is when you're limited in turn-speed. They are almost completely different games

apparently there is a 50% drop in sales for boxed sales compared to previous releases. Couple this with the poor windows sales, id say Activision are sweating a little bit.

I just hope it forces their hand to release a stand-alone version of the Modern Warfare Remaster to try and recoup their losses.
