I'm pretty sure they're doing this so the game's life cycle is prolonged but there should only be two options: console only cross play and consoles-PC cross play. PS5 users don't care if they play against XBOX players so limiting it to a single platform is not wise.
The problem is going up against PC players who have many advantages, some legit and some not so legit. Having higher FPS, wider FOV, MnKB, and Nvidia filters are already unfair, but that's not enough for some PC players out there. Cheating is a serious issue even in BOCW and Modern Warfare's multiplayer, but no one pays attention to those anymore because of Warzone who has even more cheaters.
I say this as someone who plays with PC players everyday on MW2019. Everyday that I play with them, we come across a few blatant cheaters and some who are sus af. It's satisfying to beat them even with them using cheats but it's not fun. I'll still play with the option on if BF2042 releases as such, but I'd love for everyone else to have the option of console cross play.
