50,000 Petitioners Ask Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Next-Gen Remake
A new petition has been filed online that asks Activision and Infinity Ward to remake Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Since its creation last week by Ramez Zahra of Australia on Change.org, the petition has been signed by 50,000 eager fans of the first-person shooter franchise.
“I speak for every one when I say that Modern Warfare 2 was one of Activision’s best game,” reads the description.
“Just a fun and enjoyable game that really gives you that nostalgic feeling. The guns, maps, kill streaks were just incredible. At the moment MW2 for PS3 & Xbox  is just overrun by hackers. If they remaster the game and sort a couple things out (e.g noob tubing) it would make a lot of people happy.”
The letter is addressed to Activision’s CEO Bobby Kotick and Infinity Ward’s CEO Jason West, the latter of whom already left the studio back in 2010
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, released in 2007, was really the title that turned the series into an iconic franchise. Plenty of what was introduced there, ended up inspiring a lot of content for future installments.
The last game in the series was Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare which was released last year. Infinity Ward’s last take on the series was in 2013 with Call of Duty: Ghosts. This year will see to Treyarch bring its version of Call of Duty, after which will be the turn of IW.
