Disable Crossplay on PS4 & PS5
Disabling crossplay option is easy for Playstation users as they have dedicated controls for these settings. Follow these steps:
Open the Playstation main menu and navigate to launcher > Accounts and network section.
Here, go to crossplay settings and turn it off. Once done, save the settings and run the game again.
Disable Crossplay on Xbox
Although the game itself doesn’t have crossplay options, but you can enable or disable system-wide Crossplay on Xbox. Please note that this will affect all the games that you play on Xbox.
Open the settings menu on your Xbox console and navigate to General > Online safety & family option.
Here choose ‘Privacy & online safety’ and then ‘Xbox Live privacy’ options.
Go to ‘View details & customize’, then ‘Communication & multiplayer‘ option.
For the tab that says ‘You can play with people outside Xbox Live’, select Block and save the settings.
Once done, no other platform players will be in the lobby when your play Warzone 2.
