Not a fan of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Are you pining for something more old school? If so, your wish might be granted before the year is done. A new rumor has surfaced stating that the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release is set for 2020!
This was announced over on Twitter by a certain user name Okami, who also added that it will include multiplayer once it’s out this year.

So what makes this person more credible than the thousands of supposed insiders? Well, he/she also correctly leaked the Modern Warfare Gunfight beta release date on PS4 last year (via Dexterto)!
August 20th is a Gunfight Beta for PS4

In addition to the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release window, the leaker also claimed that Call of Duty: Warzone — Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode — will be out this March 10 (this coming Tuesday), which was also the date another rumor pegged as the release date. It mentions how Warzone will be free-to-play (F2P), and will be Squads only, and will be its own separate client. Okami adds that once people see that his other leaks are true regarding Warzone, they’ll know his leak regarding Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is legit, too.
– Warzone is launching March 10th
– Trailer is ready. It's coming either on Thursday or on Monday.
– Free to play
– Squads only
– Will be in its own separate client
When all of this comes true you will know I'm right about MW2R coming this year.

Given how none of this is from Activision nor Infinity Ward, or from a reputable source (just yet), make sure to take everything with a grain of salt. That said, those not looking forward to this year’s alleged Treyarch-developed Call of Duty game, you’ll have a choice to play something else later this year it seems.
We’re going to keep a close eye on this, and hopefully, this rumor is true.
Would you want Modern Warfare 2 Remastered to be released this year? What changes do you want made to it?
