Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked [Update]

A leak from the South Korean ratings board suggests that the campaign for Modern Warfare 2 is coming.

Update: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is out now on PlayStation 4 after a series of leaks, first from a South Korean ratings board and later with a PSN listing from Germany. Even the surprise release date of March 31 was accurate. Those who purchase the remastered campaign for Modern Warfare 2 (there is currently no multiplayer) will get a bundle of cosmetic items and other bonuses to use in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Original story follows...

Activision Blizzard released a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2017, and the company appears primed to give its sequel (or at least its campaign) the same treatment. The South Korean ratings board has apparently leaked the game, suggesting that the fan-favorite sequel might get an updated re-release. Later, a PSN listing for the remaster emerged, pointing to a release date of March 31.

The Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC) site has a listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, registered on February 26. Given the name, this is just a remaster of the campaign, not the multiplayer. Modern Warfare Remastered did include its own game's multiplayer with new tweaks and achievements. This doesn't necessarily mean it will be missing from the final MW2 Remastered product, though, as that listing could simply be separate.

None of this is to be confused with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the relaunch of the Modern Warfare series that released last year. That's currently getting a ton of ongoing content with ongoing seasons and battle passes. Most recently it added the battle royale Warzone, which is free to all players regardless of whether you own the base game, and gives you the same cosmetic battle pass rewards.

The free-to-play aspect seems to have been a hit, having reached 6 million players in its first 24 hours. If you want to jump into Warzone, check out some of our best tips to get you off on the right boot.

It will be bundled with a weak ass CoD to boost its sales. Expect 2020's CoD to be garbage if MW2 remaster is bundled.

Man, that sounds incredibly dumb. So are they gonna release the remaster of MW2, or only the sp mode which makes zero sense, together with the remake of MW2 which is obviously gonna come out anytime soon?

@Pupchu: right, because they haven't deviated for that formula ever since. It's like eating the same confort food all the week: you gonna burn out of it eventually.

@Pupchu: my 18 year old brain loved that movie though. It will atleast be a nice trip of nostalgia for me.

@Pupchu: Most people would say the original MW's campaign was better overall but MW2 definitely had more memorable moments. It's a blast to play through, even if you've completed it before.

@Pupchu: no one will argue against that, still the spectacularity of some events greatly mixed with the setpieces disguised that pretty well :P

No multiplayer equals no buy. The campaign was great but the mp is a must have.
