The release of the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare remaster fiasco two years ago left fans wondering if Activision would release a remastered version of its sequel, Modern Warfare 2. With rumors heavily suggesting that Activision was leaning towards doing just that in recent weeks, Eurogamer was able to independently confirm that a Modern Warfare 2 remaster is indeed in development.
The remaster is slated to release April 30th and will cost around $25, according to the report. However, it has one glaring omission that has left fans seething; the game will reportedly not feature multiplayer.
The reasoning behind this is unclear as of this writing, but one doesn't have to stretch their minds too far to figure out why Activision would do something like this. One could assume that Activision doesn't want their playerbase split between too many Call of Duty titles at once, but if thats the case, why bother with remasters at all?
It just makes no sense. Multiplayer is the Call of Duty franchise for a lot of people and it just floors us that they continue to get even the most basic things wrong about remastered titles for the sake of "HEY! Remember THIS game! Wasn't THIS game the best? Remember all the fun you had?"
We'll bring you more as we get it on the latest Activision remaster.
