The announcement last week of cross play between all platforms on the day of release (October 25th) was a huge announcement for Modern Warfare. This will be the very first Call Of Duty title to incorporate this long awaited feature. An Infinity Ward developer has shared a link to a Forbes' article that goes into detail on how this feature will work.
Since the announcement was made, new information was discovered in both the Xbox Live store and PlayStation Store regarding the number of players that will be able to be in a multiplayer match at once. The description states that the game supports 2-20 players.
Most notably, this could mean that a battle royale mode like Blackout has either been massively retooled to support smaller matches or lifted from the equation entirely.
Of course, the 20-player limit could ultimately be reserved for a more small-scale battle royale mode, or possibly a brand new mode altogether, but Call Of Duty is long overdue for a multiplayer makeover. Until Infinity Ward gives more information as to whether things will change or remain the same in Modern Warfare (which could possibly come as soon as E3), players will be left guessing.
