Call of Duty fans got a tasty treat last month when Activision stealth released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered (campaign only) on the PS4. While Xbox One and PC owners are still waiting for the game to hit their platforms, it seems there’s a logical reason why it was out on PS4 first, and it’s because Sony funded it and timed exclusivity is part of the deal.
This was mentioned by reliable leaker TheGamingRevolution, who also pointed out that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered was originally set to be released in 2018, though it was delayed due to the school shooting that happened in that year. In addition to that, TheGamingRev also mentions that Modern Warfare 3 Remastered is on the way, and this too, will be campaign only. He adds that development on this is already finished and it will be on the same engine as Modern Warfare and MW2 Remastered.

TheGamingRev even shows an Easter egg of sorts in Modern Warfare 2 Remastered which you can see below.
The image above is from the museum in Modern Warfare 2 Remastered that you can access once you beat the campaign. In it, players can see a “Concept Art” painting that also had the line “Acquired by the Museum in 2018,” since it (MW2 Remastered) was originally set for release in that year. It also says “Part of the Remastered collection,” which points to Modern Warfare 3 Remastered as the last one in this “collection.”
Note that while TheGamingRevolution has been pretty spot-on with his leaks, this is still a rumor. So don’t expect a Modern Warfare 3 Remastered announcement or release anytime soon. We’ve reached out to Activision and will update the post if we get a response.
