GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

The rumors were right. As part of its Call of Duty Infinite Warfare announcement today, Activision also confirmed that it's remastering 2007's fan-favorite Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

No Caption Provided

The original game was made by Infinity Ward (which is developing Infinite Warfare), but development on the remaster for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC is behind done by Activision subsidiary Raven Software. Infinity Ward is of course involved with the production, as it is executively producing the game.

It's being called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. According to a press release, it will feature "vibrant current generation visuals, with fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio, stunning sound, and much more."

You can see the game in action at the end of Infinite Warfare's announcement trailer below.
