Activision is coming again to Steam in an enormous means in 2022. We have identified for some time now that the brand new Name of Responsibility: Fashionable Warfare 2 would be the first CoD to reach on Steam since 2017 (opens in new tab), however it appears like Activision is preparing for its grand return by gussying itself up with an official writer homepage.
Writer homepages are what you see whenever you click on on the writer’s title on a Steam retailer web page. Earlier than immediately, Activision’s writer hyperlink led to a default record of its Steam video games. Now it has a extra official “writer homepage (opens in new tab)” with a banner picture, an choice to observe the writer on Steam, and collections of Activision video games curated by Activision.
It is not a major change for the typical buyer, however it does counsel that Activision shall be a better participant within the Steam market going ahead. Activision technically by no means left Steam fully. In 2019, Sekiro and the Spyro remake trilogy launched on Steam beneath the Activision banner regardless of the final 4 CoDs and Crash Bandicoot 4 solely ever releasing on Battle.web, and Tony Hawk Professional Skater 1 + 2 showing solely on the Epic Video games Retailer.
This might be an indication that outliers like Crash 4, Tony Hawk, and Activision’s massive service recreation success, Name of Responsibility: Warzone, may even come to Steam quickly.
A proper homepage signifies that Activision can now take part on the enjoyable of Steam writer gross sales, promotions that sometimes see reductions on a writer’s complete Steam catalog. Perhaps we’ll lastly get a good low cost on decade-old Name of Responsibility video games.
Activision’s Steam return kicks off in October with Name of Responsibility: Fashionable Warfare 2.
