Crossplay was a glimmer in the eyes of gamers going back to Sega Dreamcast, but it was and is the holy grail of online multiplayer and is implemented in Call of Duty Warzone 2.
But it can be a double-edged sword. It is great to play with friends, regardless if you have the same console. However, given PC mouse advantages over controllers in FPS games and more cheaters, it is not always fair.
With the high skill and knowledge ceiling of Warzone 2, players might want more of a level playing field even if skill-based matchmaking has not been confirmed yet.

As long as you and your friends on different platforms have Crossplay enabled, you can play together online in Warzone 2.
