Windows 10 version of COD: Infinite Warfare multiplayer has a big caveat

While there have been a handful of exceptions, most games segment each console and PCs into their own sandboxes. This goes for both Infinite Warfare and the remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that comes packed-in with some editions of the game.

This effectively cuts off Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered players that acquired the game from the Windows Store from a community that Activision has been cultivating since 2003.

"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare", the latest addition to the famed action and strategic game series "Call of Duty", is gearing up for its grand release this November 4.

In a new post on the Activision blog, developers talked about the Specialist and YOLO (You Only Live Once) modes that players can unlock.

The iconic Zombies mode will dwell on the teamplay of players while attempting to survive in an apocalyptic world. Considering that Call of Duty Infinite Warfare: Jackal Assault is free, it could also mean that this is a trial to see if Call of Duty Infinite Warfare VR will be appreciated by its fans.

If you're getting the digital version of Infinite Warfare, expect the download size to jump from 45GB to about 51GB.

Hayden Dingman, games reporter for PC World, called the constraint "ridiculous" and advised people to avoid the Windows store if they planned to venture into multiplayer games on Infinite Warfare.
