It appears it's only a matter of time before Call of Duty returns to Valve's storefront.

On Thursday, Activision and Infinity Ward dropped their latest promo for the highly anticipated Modern Warfare 2 mainline series reboot sequel. In addition to the COD community getting a worldwide reveal date set in stone, as well as an energizing live-action trailer, however, Steam put out a surprising teaser as well.

Twenty minutes after the Call of Duty announcement, the official Steam Twitter account Quote Tweeted it and added the oh-so-clever Eyes Emoji.

While this isn't an official announcement, after all, Activision and Infinity Ward have yet to mention Steam at all during their promotional campaign, it's certainly as close as it gets.

This follows a leak discovered on May 29 in which an eagle-eyed Redditor noticed artwork for the upcoming MW2 appearing on Steam under the Black Ops 3 page. Soon after, the image was pulled from Steam and replaced with a blank one, further fueling the rumor fire.

A departure of the Call of Duty franchise from its Battle.net exclusivity surely would be a popular move in the eyes of its PC community. The last Call of Duty titles to release on Steam were WWII and Modern Warfare Remastered in 2017.

With the new MW2 releasing on Steam, not only would PC players perhaps be able to have more of their games together in one library, as well as make easier refunds if needed, but this would also make it possible to track the player count of the title à la Apex Legends and Lost Ark.

For those who are fans of Battle.net, MW2 will undoubtedly still be heading there as teaser images for the upcoming gaming are available on both its website and PC launcher.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to release on Oct. 28.
