Is Modern Warfare 3 Coming to PS4 and Xbox One?

Modern Warfare 3 will be available for PS4 and Xbox One at launch.

PS4 and Xbox One players got to experience the MW3 Beta, so it makes sense that they will not be gatekept from the official release. While there shouldn’t be any differences in performance between the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X versions, you can expect a drop in quality or a solid FPS cap on PS4 and Xbox One due to the low processing power of last-gen consoles.

The Xbox Series X and PS5 will offer faster load times, better textures, advanced visual settings, and a bunch of goodies to increase visual fidelity. Next-gen consoles will likely have a 120hz option, while the Xbox One and PS4 will be capped at 60 and may take a further hit to 30FPS during Urizkstan or the new zombies mode.

PC players will have to rely on whatever rig they have and can either underperform old-gen consoles or blow the next-gen out of the water.

Will MW3 Have Cross-Play Between Last Gen and Current Gen Consoles?

Last-gen players rejoice, as Cross Play allows you to play with your friends on the newer gens or even the PC. Activision has made sure to leave no man behind too, as they have broadened their reach by including every console that can run the next installment in the Modern Warfare trilogy. Irrespective of the console or platform, so long as you have purchased MW3, you can play with anyone.

That’s everything you need to know about whether or not Modern Warfare 3 will be on PS4 and Xbox One. For more content on Call of Duty be sure to stick with us at Twinfinite as we continue to cover the franchise’s latest entry.
