Call of Duty Report Crushes the Dreams of Modern Warfare 2 Fans

According to recent reports, Call of Duty 2021 -- reportedly dubbed Call of Duty: WWII Vanguard -- is in danger of not releasing this year. These same reports differ slightly in what Activision and co. may do if this happens, but one suggested that Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered would be released. Naturally, this specific report has garnered a lot of attention, because there are many COD fans who would love for this to happen. However, according to several sources we've spoken to, this isn't happening. In addition to this, prominent Call of Duty insider and leaker, Tom Henderson, ha said there's no chance this will happen.

Taking to Twitter, Henderson crushed the dreams of millions of Modern Warfare fans, noting he's so positive this isn't happening that he's willing to give away 50 copies of the game if it does. Henderson doesn't shut the door on this eventually happening, but notes it will not happen this year.

Based on the conversations I've had, it wouldn't take much for Activision to ship out Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered. In fact, I've heard some of this work is already done. However, I've also heard that Activision is prepared to sit on the release until it really needs it. And even if Vanguard does slip to 2022 or gets canned, Activision won't need to cash in because it has Warzone, which is only going to become more and more of the focus in the coming years.

At the moment of publishing, Activision has not commented on any of the reports and speculation above. There's no reason to expect this to change, but if it does, the story will be updated accordingly.

I was looking forward to WWII Vanguard :(

Oh well, they can release Modern Warfare 3 Campaign Remastered earlier then


They will hold MW2 remastered over our head till they think COD will flop or be really bad. Seems they should have released it then?


Does not surprise me that they would not do what their fan base wants. I think I can speak on behalf of many, possibly thousands here when I say that it would be awesome to have MW2 reborn. After all, for many of us that is the reason we learned of TTG.

Anyway, It does not bother me. I have not enjoyed a COD in many, many years! So its really not a let down.


If they gave you a remastered they would have have no "free" dlc to give you!


God forbid them making a game everyone liked.
