Both recently released Call Of Duty titles are now available on PC platforms. Unfortunately, those who purchased Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered on the Windows Store for Windows 10 can only play the game exclusively with fellow gamers who also use the same operating system and got their game from the Store.
Activision Responsible For Windows 10 Exclusivity
"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered for Windows 10 on Windows Store" Activision FAQ confirms that the Microsoft edition of the game is not compatible for play with other versions of the game bought from other stores, such as Steam. Cross-platform support between Windows 10 and Xbox One is also out of the question as Microsoft states via Windows Central that they only support cross-play for platforms and devices depending on what their partner prefers. Based on this statement, it seems that Activision has made the call to segregate the Windows 10 audience away from the others.
Meanwhile, Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare is currently not found in the Windows Store. The Modern Warfare Remastered page is live, but it is unavailable for separate purchase. However, the description in the page reads that Modern Warfare Remastered is available in both the 'Digital Legacy' and 'Digital Deluxe' editions of Infinite Warfare.
Technical Problems Caused Windows 10 Separation?
In a report by PC Gamer, they concluded that the reason why Infinite Warfare was deemed exclusive for Windows 10 is because of technical difficulties faced against the Windows 7 compatible version on Steam. Regardless, the situation still remains bleak as to why the publisher, specifically Activision, decided to rule out the Windows 10 version away from the rest of the PC populace. It is noted by PCWorld that the Call Of Duty presence in PC is already minimal than the consoles and putting the game away from the others will undoubtedly push the Windows 10-specific COD community to extinction.
Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered are now available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
