With players always wanting to join forces with friends, knowing about Black Ops 6 split-screen has its uses.

In previous Call of Duty titles, players had the ability to party up using one console and monitor and ahead of Black Ops 6's release, some are hoping they can load into some Zombies and multiplayer matches with their duo.

With that said, find everything there is to know about if Black Ops 6 features split-screen in this guide.

Does Black Ops 6 have split-screen?

Luckily for all, Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will indeed feature split-screen capabilities. Activision confirmed this news through the frequently asked questions section in one support article explaining the differences between the game's editions.

The article specifies that split-screen gameplay will only be exclusive to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions. This is to ensure performance integrity since the old-generation consoles are probably barely running this year's title smoothly.

Only 2-player split-screen is mentioned in the article, meaning we still don't know if the game will allow up to four players to play on the same device or not.

Does Black Ops 6 PC have split-screen?

Unfortunately, the PC version of Black Ops 6 won't have this feature. Split-screen gameplay has been a staple for the console version of most titles in the franchise, but it's not implemented for PC users.

Although an official reason is unknown, this is probably because it would be a technical challenge to run two instances of the game on the same PC, especially because this version offers more leeway regarding graphical settings.
