An image featuring Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 art has been discovered on Steam, which may mean Call of Duty is returning to the PC storefront.
The past five years, Duty fans on PC had to rely on Blizzard’s Battle.net app to purchase the latest games in the series. Starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4all games and services for Duty are Battle.net exclusive to PC to avoid the cost of Steam and other storefronts. But that may soon change. There is new evidence indicating that Duty could be coming back to Steam with the upcoming release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2†
Duty fans recently explored the franchise’s profile on Steam. while recently Duty games are not released through the PC storefront, all games from Call of Duty: WW2 and back remain available for purchase. At the bottom of this profile was a surprising graphic. It’s nothing complicated, just a link back to the Duty franchise portal on Steam. But in the image is a work of art by Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2concept art by Simon “Ghost” Riley.
After the art was discovered and shared online in several Duty communities, it was quickly removed and replaced with a blank blue image. Without official comment on the matter, there’s no way to tell exactly what it means. It was clearly uploaded by accident. Whether it was accidentally uploaded too early and indicates an upcoming Steam release for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2or if the art was accidentally used and it means there is nothing left to see.
The available evidence is in no way substantial. There is no confirmation or firm evidence of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be released on Steam. But what there is is eyebrow-raising at the very least. An image with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 art uploaded to an official Steam page is no small feat.
Duty returning to Steam is by no means an impossible decision, but it would be surprising at this point. What would make sense is if Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard were completed and then what? Duty was brought back to Steam. Microsoft has done the same for many of its major game releases in recent memory. But Activision hasn’t shown any indication yet that it wants to do this.
All Duty fans on PC can do is wait for more information on this. More Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 news will come relatively soon as the game launches later this year. Steam support probably wouldn’t make a big announcement, but it would make sense for PC gamers nonetheless.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be published on October 28.
