Hated Publisher Officially Returns to Steam

Activision has taken another step towards a full return to Steam. After the release of this year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on Valve's platform, it was time to create a dedicated tab for the publisher.

Rumors that Activision games are returning from their long trip to Battle.net and will again be available on Steam, have been appearing for some time now. The first such title - offered in both of the aforementioned launchers - is expected to be this year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. However, all indications are that it will not be the last. Activision has created - or maybe recreated? - its publisher tab on Valve's platform.

Activision on Steam

For now, we won't find much on it - except the upcoming CoD there are only links to slightly older games published by Activision, such as Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Prototype 2 or Singularity. However, it seems that we can expect the addition of more titles sooner rather than later. What else would this subpage have been created for?

Six CoD games and a fourth Crash

What titles can we expect then? The most likely seem to be the latest installments of Call of Duty - we are talking about Black Ops 4, Modern Warfare 2019, Warzone, Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, Cold War and Vanguard - as well as Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. Rumors regarding the appearance of the latter game on Steam have been circulating the web for more than a month, so it may be the first to go.

As a reminder, let me add that Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time can now be picked up as part of a PS Plus Essential subscription. Details can be found here. The offer can be taken advantage of on PS4 and PS5.

Diablo, Overwatch and WoW coming soon?

And what about the further future? Well, it is possible that when Microsoft finalizes the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, more Blizzard games will land on Steam - e.g. such brands as Diablo and Overwatch, and perhaps also Hearthstone or even World of Warcraft. The nearly $70 billion transaction is expected to be finalized by the end of June 2022 and is still being reviewed by various institutions, Recently joined by The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK.
