Activision planning to release Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is a Call of Duty title everyone cannot wait for and with the latest pieces of information that have been surfacing, that day might not be far away. According to several gaming insiders from Twitter and Reddit, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered could be coming as either a stand-alone title or alongside Call of Duty 2017. The information isn't surprising either, as Modern Warfare 2 still draws hundreds of thousands of players every single week.

Modern Warfare 2 released at the point that the Call of Duty franchise was at its biggest, and the game vastly became one of the biggest selling Call of Duty titles. Although the game had some major issues because of legal troubles with Infinity Ward, the game is still considered to many as the best Call of Duty title of all time. Without a doubt this is something Activision would have picked up on, in fact, before Modern Warfare Remastered was even announced, a petition for Modern Warfare 2 Remastered gained over 220,000 signatures in the space of a week.

This in short means that there is a demand for the title to be remastered and with how the Call of Duty development cycle is, it'd probably be a wise move for Activision to give the green light. Even though Modern Warfare 2 isn't a Sledgehammer Games title, it'd set the Call of Duty franchise on a potential goldmine of opportunities, as the bullet points below shows.
Call of Duty 2017 + Modern Warfare 2 Remastered
Call of Duty 2018 + World At War Remastered
Call of Duty 2019 + Modern Warfare 3 Remastered + Modern Warfare Remastered Trilogy

As we can see, if Activision decides on a Modern Warfare 2 Remaster now, it'd set up a Modern Warfare Remastered Trilogy in 2019, which will undoubtedly create mass sales for the franchise. The reason as to why this particular set of remasters is a good idea, is because no matter how much we're all looking forward to three years of traditional Call of Duty titles, we'll all eventually get bored. This basically means that Activision will want to feed on remastered Call of Duty sales, which makes a remastered trilogy very a very real reality. Call of Duty has always suffered from fans complaining that the franchise releasing the same games year in and year out and when the franchise took a risk in 2014 with Advanced Warfare, things went from bad to worse. Although Black Ops 3 was hugely success, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare didn't live up to Activision's predicted sales. This has resulted in the franchise once again going back to traditional 'boots on the ground' titles, which will once again continue to yearly release later this year.

If they are planning on making us pay $80+ for both the new cod, and the remastered cod, I don't think it's worth it.


I feel like they should just do a remastered bundle, Im thinking cod 4 and mw2 remastered would be a bundle i would buy for 60, but I am not buying the new cods just for the old I dont agree with it.


I hope they do, but not make me buy some wank game with it.


If this is true...RIP to any other game released this year. Simple as that. It would rack up a billion hours played in the 1st night haha.


RareparrotJr there will be no supply drops people calm down.. they learned from their mistakes

its activison they never learn.

Exactly, the company just wants to chase the money. They know people will buy the supply drops so why would they stop them?
Honestly I do hope they make the game IDENTICAL with a few minor bux fixes and changes, be nice to see what they do with it if this is true

I would really like to see this happen, yet at the same time I don't want it to. I feel like they would f*ck wiith the game too much & end up killing it. If done correct then it could be amazing, we just need to hope...


A'body like "won't like this" you realise this the Xbox 360 classic and childhood memory game

This has gotta happen man


The expectations for cod 2017/18/19 are very low if there bringing out a remastered game along with it. Just like the done infinitawfare and remastered.


I'd much rather the game come out as backwards compatible than remastered:/ Now these other games will have the same $80 price tag for something that is nothing short of offensive to their fans.
