Activision is possibly preparing to bring its Call of Duty titles to the major Steam competitor, the Epic Games Store. The rumor has sprawled from an anomaly initially noticed by the insider @_FireMonkey on Twitter. The users noticed that the Epic Games Store was available as an option to link with Activision while the insider was showcasing the process of linking EGS and Nintendo accounts to it.

However, the possibilities are not limited to the Call of Duty franchise. We could likely see other notable Activision titles, like Crash Bandicoot, Overwatch, and more, to be included in the roster. The fans are already discussing what games may stand out in EGS, but the presence of COD will surely propel the store’s growing player base. It may also make Epic Games an easy and primary way to access the latest titles in the series.

However, the rumor could amount to a variety of things in the end. A few prior rumors have alluded to a collab between Call of Duty and Fortnite in the near future; the devs might be prepping for that behind the scenes. The details about this collab are as hazy as the rumor itself, but the most likely scenario points towards operator skins and weapons. A partnership between both giants is still yet to be announced.
The hearsay suggested a release next month, but there is no sign of any official reveals from either side yet. So, it is likely that the situation points toward the Activision games arriving on the EGS. All in all, we suggest taking the rumors with a grain of salt until Activision steps in to clear the confusion among the fans.
The Epic Games Store is a viable storefront for PC gaming after Steam. The storefront provides players with free weekly games and many enthralling exclusives. However, the EGS CEO has admitted that it still fails to turn up any profits for the company. Activision may prove to be the partnership the store needs to start making profits.
