Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is making progress for the series by being the first game in the franchise to include cross-play, but that's not the only series first feature the PS4, Xbox One, and PC game is packing. To supplement cross-play, the new installment in the first-person shooter series will also have cross-progression, allowing players to transfer user stats and progression between different platforms, which is increasingly a staple feature for cross-play, but far from a guarantee. What this means is that your progress made on PS4 would carry over to Xbox One if you chose to jump ships and play the game over there.
At the moment of publishing, Activision and Infinity Ward haven't come out and outright confirmed and detailed the feature, but the game's betas have done that for them. Players who have played the beta, and have their various platform accounts linked to the same COD account, have been reporting that their progression has been carrying over to other platforms.
As alluded to, this is increasingly common for games that support cross-play, however, there's plenty of games with cross-play that don't support cross-progression. In other words, while we knew cross-play was coming to the game, cross-progression was still very much up in the air.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and is poised to release worldwide later this year on October 25. At the moment of publishing, there's been no official or unofficial word of any additional ports.
