Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War already supports crossplay between different platforms as part of beta testing, but players on consoles began to disable this option in order not to get caught by cheaters in the PC version.
Although Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War just kicked off in beta this week, there are already enough cheaters in the game – even if progress isn’t carried over to the full version. So the cheaters’ logic is clearly not driven by the desire to pump faster, but to get an unfair advantage and ruin the matches for others.

Cheat sites are already posting hacks for Black Ops Cold War, and it doesn’t look like the developers will actively oppose them. In this regard, disabling crossplay is quite fair. It’s better to wait in the lobby a little longer than spoil your mood with chitaki.
