However, if players wish not to play with or against or join a lobby with heroes from other platforms, they have the option to disable a few settings to disable matchmaking with other platform players. This can be done within the game’s Multiplayer menu of COD Vanguard.

Head to the Multiplayer menu and look for the Settings option. Look for the ‘Account and Network’ setting, and under the Online category, players can find the Crossplay option. Here, players can enable or disable the feature, but players will need to restart the game for the setting to take effect.
