Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Purchasers From Windows Store Can’t Connect With Steam Players

Steam’s player base won’t factor into your Windows 10 multiplayer experience.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

Here’s a rather annoying thing that Windows 10 players who purchase from the Windows Store can’t do in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – they can’t connect to the Steam player base, which represents the lion’s share of Call of Duty users on PC.

Activision noted on its official support site that both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered noted that multiplayer servers won’t connect to Steam servers. On the official FAQ, it noted that with regards to playing with friends who own Steam copies, “No, you can only play these titles with other users of Windows 10 on Windows Store.”

It’s a fairly annoying thing to deal with especially since Steam has been the default PC market for Call of Duty for much of the series’ lifetime. Whether Microsoft is working to deal with this or not hasn’t been confirmed. In the meantime, opt for the Steam version if you want to experience either game’s multiplayer the right way.

    Wow. How stupid. Dare they try and compete with Steam? Nope. They just cut themselves out of the deal. Steam version on PC it is then. Rationality wins over a corporate control freak mentality every time.

    Who on earth would buy from Windows store????

    You only do that kind of thing as a last resort on PC.

    Well if MS wanted to compete and make their marketplace favourable, why not apply their current xboxone ideology, this isn’t right. They’re making 2013s mistake on xboxone on their UWP, people would just shift to steam.
