There have been indications overnight that point to the possibility of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s campaign being remastered for today’s audiences in a similar fashion to its predecessor, though it does seem to suggest that unlike Modern Warfare Remastered, the sequel’s treatment won’t include the fan-favourite multiplayer instead opting to focus on the game’s, for its time, controversial campaign.
Nibel on Twitter brought this development to light first, going so far as to post an image of the South Korean ratings board that the long-rumoured remaster first appeared on near the end of last month.
Though we didn’t review Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the game was a faithful adaptation of the original source material which looked phenomenal so to hear that we’re likely to be getting our hands on a follow-up that’ll be treated with the same care and respect is exciting, to say the least.
Of course, there are a lot of questions that arise from this revelation. Without multiplayer, how is this admittedly brief campaign going to be priced and are gamers even going to purchase a Call of Duty game without competitive modes? More so, with a graphical bump to today’s lifelike standards, is the infamous ‘No Russian’ mission going to cause history to repeat and create industry-wide ripples as it did over a decade ago?
Hopefully it isn’t too long before we have answers to these questions and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is officially revealed.
