With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered released earlier this week, most gamers should be familiar with the game’s highly controversial campaign. It seems there’s one company not a fan of the game, and that’s Sony Russia as Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Russia sales have been blocked by Sony.
This was announced over on the official Russian Call of Duty Twitter account:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered – полностью вымышленная кампания 2009 года, воссозданная в HD качестве. SIE решили не продавать игру в российском PS Store. Мы с нетерпением ждем выхода игры в цифровом варианте для ПК в https://t.co/44Pv8h7lHL и на консолях Xbox

Translated, it says:
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a completely fictional 2009 campaign, recreated in HD quality. SIE decided not to sell the game in the Russian PS Store. We look forward to the release of the game in digital form for the PC in http://Battle.net and on Xbox consoles”
If you’ve played or completed the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, or just a video game fan in general, then you know there’s a highly sensitive and controversial chapter in the game titled “No Russian” that has the player doing rather unpleasant thing to people. It would make sense why Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Russia sales would be blocked.
Stay tuned for our Modern Warfare 2 Remastered review hitting the site soon, and remember: it’s just the campaign, as Activision has already confirmed it has no plans to release a remastered version of the multiplayer.
