Rumors of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered have been kicking around for a week now but sources close to CharlieIntel have now confirmed the game's existence, as well as some surprising news. According to the report, it is not being developed by Raven nor will it feature a multiplayer component. Sources at Eurogamer have also confirmed the information contained in the report.
This news falls in line with the leaked product listing for the game on Amazon Italy last week, which priced the game at $25. Given that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was priced at $40 and did contain a full multiplayer mode, this price difference may be due to the lack of multiplayer in the Modern Warfare 2 remaster.
The new details are said to have come from a Raven Software employee who confirms the campaign-only remaster. Despite heading up the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered last year, Raven Studios are reportedly not involved with the sequel's remaster. Instead, CharlieIntel reports that Beenox would be handling it, having previously helped with the campaign parts of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster. The team also worked on Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
The campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 features the ever-controversial "No Russian" mission, in which the player can gun down an airport full of civilians whilst working an undercover mission. The player is not forced to open fire on any civilians, and can actually skip the mission entirely, facts which did not stop it hitting headlines back when it released. The game originally launched in 2009 and featured the return of series favorites Soap MacTavish and Captain Price.Activision has not announced any official details about a possible Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. We will update when we know more.
