A recent rumor that’s started to circulate has said that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered gameplay might be limited just to the game’s single-player mode, meaning that if it exists players won’t be able to take part in the game’s multiplayer. The leak’s origin apparently comes from CharlieIntel.
The Modern Warfare games are seen as some of the greatest first-person shooter games ever, and were some of the games that put the Call of Duty series truly on the map. Last year, the remastered version of the original Call of Duty Modern Warfare game was highly popular, enough that Activision bundled Infinite Warfare with it to prevent Infinite Warfare from being a bomb.
However, if the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered gameplay ends up not having multiplayer (which is the main reason many Call of Duty fans play the game), there’s no telling whether or not it’ll be as successful as the original Modern Warfare Remastered was.
There’s not even any real indication that we’ll be getting a Modern Warfare 2 Remastered version. The rumor came from an Amazon Italy listing that remarked on it and said that it will be releasing next month. However, Activision hasn’t confirmed anything about a Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Edition, and hasn’t given any hints that they’re close to doing so, either.
While Eurogamer has confirmed that CharlieIntel’s rumor is apparently accurate, we’ll have to wait for something from Activision to actually confirm that it’s happening.
Among the news that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered gameplay isn’t going to have multiplayer in it, there’s also hints that Raven Software, who did the original Modern Warfare Remastered, isn’t working on this next game. Instead, the Canadian developer Beenox is responsible for it.
Exactly what will be happening in regards to Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, if it exists, remains to be seen, but hopefully Activision will actually confirm something about it sometime in the near future. If it does turn out to be true, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will be coming out on April 30.
