Every year, Activision releases another Call of Duty and gamers across the world scramble to get their hands on the new shooter. Fans love the single player campaign, but the game’s polished, fun, and fast-paced multiplayer mode is the real draw.
Of course, it only works if you have other people to play with. A few gamers who bought Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare through the digital storefront built into Windows 10 have discovered they can only play with other gamers who also bought the game from Microsoft. Xbox One players can only play with other Xbox One players, and PlayStation 4 players can only play with other PlayStation 4 players. This has always been the case. The trouble is that this time not all PC players can play with other PC players. For unknown reasons, Windows 10 Store customers are segregated from customers who bought the game from Steam, which is by far the most popular platform on PC.
Activision released two Call of Duties this year. Infinite Warfare is a new entry in the franchise and Modern Warfare Remastered is a fancy remake of one of the series' most popular games players could get as an extra for buying Infinite Warfare’s special edition. One Reddit user’s little brother bought a copy of special edition to play Warfare Remastered through the Windows 10 Store. When he tried to play some deathmatch he learned he was one of two people looking for a game.
That’s right, he couldn’t find a game for one of the most popular multiplayer shooters of all time. To put that in perspective, more than 5,000 gamers are playing Modern Warfare Remastered on Steam right now.






This is what happens when trying to compete against Steam.
