This week has rushed a blunder of nostalgic memories for fans of Infinity Ward’s most notorious sequel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It was reported just yesterday that the 2009 entry for the franchise will be receiving a remastered version of the game. But alike the listings from before have entailed, this rework will only be shipping the campaign portion of the game.
Excluding the other two thirds, Multiplayer and Special Ops, fans are in disbelief on where the rest of the game is. Infinity Ward in a recent Activision Blog post shared that the developer is looking to incorporate the remainder of the game through the already-released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Rather than release a separate, multiplayer experience as a standalone pack, Activision and Infinity Ward are looking to bring more classic map experiences to new life within the Modern Warfare universe as it continues to grow and build over time.
Infinity Ward’s decision to do so deemed to be more complicated for the fan and shared that releasing the iconic locales of the previous title would be more efficient to in the pre-existing Modern Warfare reboot rather of releasing a separate game altogether. The team has already reintroduced billboard maps like Call of Duty 4’s Crash, Vacant, Shipment, and the sequel’s Rust.
Elsewhere from the announcement, Activision revealed that with the game’s arrival today for PlayStation 4, the remaining platforms will have to wait an additional month for the game to arrive. You can read up on that detail by heading here.
