Looks like a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could be just around the corner. A rating has appeared on Korean ratings board GRAC for "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered", dating February 26th this year. Naturally, the rating is 18, which ties in pretty closely with the original game's ESRB rating of M.
This isn't the first time Modern Warfare 2 has appeared on a ratings board. Back in March last year, a listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered was spotted on European ratings board PEGI. Since then, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered has maintained radio silence, with many assuming the game had been cancelled or shelved. Its reappearance on GRAC's website suggests that Activision is still working on it, though.
There's no mention of the multiplayer component in the GRAC listing. That doesn't necessarily mean it won't be present alongside the campaign if and when the game does launch, though. Back in 2016, when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was released, it included an updated multiplayer component that added in new modes and gameplay elements. There's every chance this could also be happening with Modern Warfare 2. Right now, all we have to go on is the listing for the campaign, but it would be something of a missed opportunity for a potential Modern Warfare 2 Remastered not to include multiplayer.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was originally released in November 2009. Perhaps the most famous element of the game is its controversial "No Russian" mission, which tasks players with taking part in a mass shooting as part of an undercover operation. It's fair to say that tastes have changed since 2009, so whether this mission is included in its entirety remains to be seen. The original game did include a "disturbing content" notice and the option to skip the mission, but time will tell if this will be enough if and when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered launches.
