Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pops up in the Windows Store out of the blue

Color us surprised here, but a week out from the launch of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare the Activision title has appeared in the Windows Store. Not only that, but Modern Warfare: Remastered, hinting that we might be looking at both parts of the "Legacy Edition" hitting the Store.

To this point we've heard nothing official from Activision or Microsoft to suggest that the latest Call of Duty would be available in this way, and as yet it can't be purchased. We're hopeful this isn't just another Windows Store bug, since the listing makes no mention of Xbox One. Visiting the Game Hub from the Store listings for both games also specifically labels each as a PC title.

That Call of Duty is on the PC at all isn't new, but the potential of one of the world's largest game publishers putting a top franchise like this in the Windows Store would be extremely encouraging. The listings are currently useless and we'll have to wait for an official word from either party before it's really real, but it's definitely peaked our interest. For the Windows Store to truly become a viable source for gamers, this kind of support is a necessity.
