Call of Duty is bringing the $70 game to Steam

After years of exclusivity on Blizzard’s Battle.net platform, Call of Duty will finally make a return to Steam with this year’s Modern Warfare 2 (not to be confused with 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, a completely different game). That’s great news for folks that like to have their games all in one place, but it’s a bittersweet celebration—Modern Warfare 2 will also be the first major game to charge $70 for its standard edition on Steam.

Games are getting more expensive. At least that’s a norm that videogame publishers are trying to push. Sony has been spearheading the $70 price for a couple of years now with its exclusive PS5 games and some third-party publishers have also dipped their toes into the extra ten dollar ask, like Square Enix with Final Fantasy 7 Remake on the Epic Games Store. Activision has been charging $70 for the current gen console version of Call of Duty for the last two years, but Modern Warfare 2 is the first time that price will extend to the PC.
