In 2022, there are numerous platforms where you can purchase a game for your PC and consoles.

Throughout the history of the Call of Duty franchise, the vast majority of its player base plays on consoles. In recent years, more are experiencing the shooter on PC.

In recent years, the only way to purchase the current Call of Duty title is through Activision Blizzard's Battle.net client. Ahead of the launch of Modern Warfare 2, things are about to change. Steam users will have the ability to pre-order and play the game on the platform for the first time since 2017's World War II.

On June 2, the two parties seemingly confirmed the news following the appearance of another teaser trailer detailing the importance of teamwork.

Steam is a huge platform for PC gaming so the news of Modern Warfare 2 appearing in the store is hugely positive for those that aren't fans of using Battle.net to play.
