Remember that online listing seemingly confirming the existence of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered? Well, as it turns out, there’s more to it than a mistaken listing or placeholder product!
According to multiple sources (from CharlieIntel and Eurogamer), Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is an actual game, but don’t get excited just yet, as these same sources state that it will be just the campaign, and won’t include MW2 Remastered multiplayer (which is kind of the point, right?). The leaked listings put the price of MW2 Remastered at just $25, which seems low for a full-fledged remastered game. Well, this might be the reason why.
Furthermore, materials sent over to CharlieIntel indicate that Raven Software is NOT developing Modern Warfare 2 Remastered (the studio developed the Modern Warfare Remastered released in 2016), and seems to not be involved in any way with the rumored remastered. Rumors indicate that Beenox, the studio that assisted Raven Software in developing the campaign of the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered, might be the studio tasked in bringing the MW2 Remastered game to current-gen consoles.
Well, there you have it. It seems Modern Warfare 2 Remastered really is coming, but it won’t include the multiplayer portion. Bear in mind that these are rumors for now, and Activision has not announced anything or denied anything regarding a remastered version of Modern Warfare 2 Remastered.
Given how popular MW2’s multiplayer is/was, I wouldn’t be shocked if Activision releases it as a standalone product at some point as well. I mean, it’d be foolish not to, right?
Are you still excited to play MW2 again even without multiplayer? Or is it pointless to remaster it at all without the multiplayer?
