"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is one of the most hotly anticipated video games of the year. Reviewers, fans, and gamers alike have more or less favored the game, giving positive feedback. However, all is not well for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" players, as there is one huge caveat.

Windows Store Availability

"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is available on Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One and Windows PC. Naturally, the game would be accessible through the Windows Store. However, at the moment, it still not searchable.

The "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered" is discoverable in the Windows Store though, and it will be opening the same page in the Store. It is however marked as not available for purchase, because it is a bundled version. The two bundles that come with the remastered version are the "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" Digital Legacy and "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" Digital Deluxe editions.

Windows Store Version Exclusive Play

However, those who would be buying the game might have to think twice though. According to the game's FAQ page, Activision's "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered" for Windows 10 on Windows Store cannot be played online along with versions of different platforms and of different stores.

This means that those make the purchase cannot play with other friends and "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" players who are on another PC platform. The players can only play against other users who bought the game from the Windows Store for Windows 10.

Also, this version of "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is not a title under the "Play Anywhere" program. This means that the game could only be played on the platform it was bought for. For example, buying the PC version through the Windows Store will not give the player to the Xbox One version. The same goes the other way around.

This is the similar case with the Steam version not being compatible with Windows Store releases. The limitation may be due to technical reasons and cross-platform compatibility for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." In due time, though, maybe this snag could be lifted.
