Earlier this week, rumours surfaced stating that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is soon to receive a remaster. Further rumours now suggest, however, that the game will not receive a multiplayer mode.
Activision recently confirmed more remasters are on the way.
CharlieINTEL is reporting that the remastered version of the game will not contain a multiplayer mode, and will instead focus purely on a remake of the game’s campaign. That would seem to line up with the original remaster rumours, which suggest the game will be priced at $25, significantly lower than the remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which sold for $40 when it was released in 2016. Releasing without a multiplayer mode would explain the dip in price.
The report also states that Raven Software, who developed Modern Warfare Remastered, are not developing the remaster of the sequel. CharlieINTEL reports that Beenox, who worked alongside the studio, could be developing the game, as they have been hiring for a variety of roles “dedicated to the development of the Call of Duty franchise.”
At this point, these are all just rumours. Given that we don’t actually have official word from Activision that the game is even in development, so I wouldn’t take this as given fact at this point. We’ve reached out to Activision for comment, and we’ll update this article if they respond.
