Report - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remaster to release this year but there is a catch

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most successful Call of Duty games in the series. Selling over 4.7 million copies within its first 24 hours, the game was no doubt the highest point in the series. I personally loved it as well as the rest of the world as the game still stands as the highest rated entry on Metacritic at a 94% average for consoles and 86% for PC. The success of Modern Warfare 2 should not be overlooked and Activision plans on milking the game dry as much as possible. 

According to leaked reports, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is coming our way this year. As Activision did two years ago with Infinite Warfare, the publisher released the first Modern Warfare alongside the new game with some players being able to play it early with a pre-order and some of them raging that you could only get the game if you spent over R1500 on the Infinite Warfare bundle. Regardless, Modern Warfare Remastered was a fantastic re-release of a great game that looked gorgeous on PS4 with PS4 Pro 4K enhancements too.

This year, if rumours are true, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will release alongside Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. If it will release as a pre-order exclusive like the first remaster is a mystery but according to sources, the game will not include its multiplayer mode at all. According to an Amazon leak, which has since been removed, the game was also listed as a standalone game which could mean it will not be bundled with Black Ops 4 at a super-high price tag (yay). 

Why Activision would leave the multiplayer out of the remaster is strange but it could have something to do with the fact that Infinite Warfare's servers were a wasteland as everyone rather played the remaster than the actual new game. Still, Black Ops 4 is not the hot mess Infinite Warfare was so I would keep the multiplayer. 

All this is still rumours and we hope to actually see some sort of announcement about the remaster soon. Would you play Modern Warfare 2 Remastered over Black Ops 4? Let us know in the comments below.
