Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is now out, allowing gamers to engage in large scale intergalactic battles. This new version of the game also offers new pieces of equipment that will make battles even more interesting.

Fans can buy Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for $59.99 from the Windows Store or Steam. However, there’s a catch: there is no no cross-compatibility between Windows 10 and Steam versions of the game. This means that the gamers who purchased Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare via the Windows store won’t be able to battle online with Steam gamers.

3. Can I play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered for Windows 10 on Windows Store with my friends that are playing on Xbox One?
No, you can only play these titles with other users of Windows 10 on Windows Store.
4. Can I play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered for Windows 10 on Windows Store with my friends that are playing on another PC platform?
No, you can only play these titles with other users of Windows 10 on Windows Store.

This piece of  information is available on Activision’s website, but there is no such mention on the Windows Store. To make things worse, there is no Xbox Play Anywhere compatibility for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare either. In other words, if you purchase the game for Windows 10 from the Windows Store, you will only be able to play on your PC. If you purchase it on Xbox One, you’ll be able to play it only on your Xbox One console.

The PC user base for Call of Duty is low enough already. The decision to split gamers between two fronts will only diminish the game’s already declining popularity.
