Recently, it has been announced that all games in the Call of Duty franchise, both past and newer, will be played from a single game.
Activision has launched Call of Duty HQ on Steam, which they have dubbed “The Home” for Warzone, Modern Warfare 2, and the upcoming games in the franchise. However, whether the developer will release Call of Duty HQ for the different consoles is unknown.
Call of Duty HQ on Steam
Activision has a few days to formally announce Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2023). Recall that Leakers unveiled the cover art and logo a few days ago. Maybe that’s why last August 2 went completely unnoticed the launch of a “new game on Steam.” This new game, named “Call of Duty,” is a hub that serves as a central location for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, and upcoming games in the franchise.
Battle.net, on the other hand, has made a similar move. Now, the two games are included in a single release called Call of Duty instead of existing as separate products. That’s why, right now, many people are wondering what this implies for a franchise that has been using the game-as-a-service concept for years.
The new CoD games
From now on, all the games in the CoD franchise will be in one place, as Steam has let it be known. As a result, future Call of Duty games will now also be playable on Steam from the same place.
Undoubtedly, this change should simplify takeoff on the battlefield, allowing you and your squad to focus more on what outcome will lead to your next triumph and less on where to launch.
On the other hand, Steam says that all players can dive into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone from one central location. In addition, they state that both games are represented by the Call of Duty logo.
Then, Steam clarifies to all its users that the previous installments of the saga, accessible on Valve’s platform and Battle.net, are independent of this hub.
Is the new home of CoD similar to Ubisoft’s AC Infinity?
Although it seems that Modern Warfare 3, unveiled next week, will be a full game, the first leaked details that surfaced described the title as an expansion to 2022’s Call of Duty.
Activision even used the phrase “Call of Duty ecosystem” in one of their statements. Therefore, it would not be unreasonable that the story would unfold through this Call of Duty in the future. So it would be similar to what Ubisoft intends for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, where the numerous contents each player would like to access could be paid for within the game.
