Infinity Ward "still figuring out" Modern Warfare cross-progression

The feature isn't guaranteed, as explained by multiplayer co-design director Joe Cecot, responding to a fan on Twitter.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is attracting a lot of attention this year, considering its return to the Modern Warfare series that fans love so much, and while we know that the game will feature cross-play on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, what about cross-progression?

One fan asked about the topic on Twitter, and Infinity Ward multiplayer co-design director Joe Cecot responded by saying that the team are "still figuring this out," with more details promised in the future.

The specific question was whether the game progress will be linked to a single Call of Duty account or something platform-specific like PSN, with the former meaning that you could keep all your unlocks and progression from one platform when playing on another.

We'll have to wait for an answer on this topic, but elsewhere questions have been raised over the inclusion of White Phosphoros in Modern Warfare's killstreaks, and whether it's ethical to include such a weapon, with many citing the harrowing portrayal in Spec Ops: The Line.

When talking to VG247, multiplayer design director Geoff Smith said the following on the killstreak:

"For us it really kinda came out of the old EMP killstreak. It's really hard to convey this electromagnetic pulse that disrupts maybe your HUD. So it wasn't like a set change or a mood change, the stakes had changed for us."

Will you be wanting cross-progression with Modern Warfare?
