Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered has leaked once again, this time from the South Korean ratings board. Interestingly, however, the listing only includes the game’s campaign mode, not its popular multiplayer or Spec Ops portions.
According to the Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC), Blizzard filed the listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered on February 26, 2020. No other information is contained in the listing (via Nibel). (Blizzard, of course, is part of the same parent company as Call of Duty’s regular publisher in the west, Activision.)
Activision previously released a remaster of the original Modern Warfare, first bundled with special editions of 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and then later as a standalone product. While that remaster encompassed the whole game, there were concerns at the time that releasing two CoD games simultaneously split the series’ playerbase. It seems that won’t happen this time around. We’ve contacted Activision for comment.
A remaster of the popular 2009 game has leaked numerous times before. We first heard about a Modern Warfare 2 remaster back in 2018, before a listing from the European ratings board, PEGI, further fuelled the fire last year.
Modern Warfare was, of course, rebooted in 2019, and Activision is gearing up to do the same with Black Ops 5, if a separate leak is to be believed. Call of Duty 2020 is apparently a “gory” and “realistic” retooling of the Black Ops subseries, while Sledgehammer Games is also reportedly working on an open-world, free-to-play Call of Duty title for 2021. Oh, and Call of Duty: Warzone only just came out, too. Phew.
