Could Sony be possibly hinting at something when it announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as one of the free PlayStation Plus games for next month?
Over on PEGI’s website (via Reddit), which is the European version of the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board), a filing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered was unearthed, though it has since been pulled. Here’s a screencap of it:
It’s worth noting that the filing only mentions the single-player of the game, though it’s very unlikely that Activision will remaster one of the most influential first-person shooter games of all time and not include its highly popular multiplayer component.
Also of note, the February 28 release date is obviously a placeholder one, as we’re now in March and we haven’t even heard of any confirmation for it.
Could this Modern Warfare 2 Remastered be bundled with this year’s Call of Duty game by Infiniy Ward? Back in 2016, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was originally bundled as part of a special edition (read: more expensive) bundle for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, before a standalone version was released months after in June 2017.
We’ve reached out to Activision to ask for a statement and will update the post if and when we hear back. However, given how popular Modern Warfare 2 is, it’s just a matter of time before it gets remastered, and if I had to hazard a guess, this isn’t a mistake on PEGI’s part.
Would you want to play Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer again? What do you want to see changed if so?
