In a new statement released today, Activision has confirmed its plans to launch Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered first on PS4. Other platforms will follow and the game should be available to pre-purchase on Xbox One and PC today. The bad news is that while Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is available to download and play today on PS4, no set release date for Xbox or PC has been confirmed.
A message from Activision explains: “Starting today, players can relive one of the most hallowed and talked about story campaigns in gaming history with Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.
“This fully restored and remastered experience is available now on PlayStation 4, with pre-purchase available on other platforms.
“Purchase on PS4 or pre-purchase on other platforms and get the free UDT Classic Ghost Bundle for use immediately in Modern Warfare including Warzone.
“Download Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered now in the PlayStation Store, or pre-purchase on other platforms. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered does not include the Multiplayer or Special Ops experiences of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.”
As mentioned above, buying the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered package also unlock new content for Call of Duty Warzone.
But there will be no new multiplayer functionality included, with this Modern Warfare 2 Remastered experience limited to single-player.
“Beginning with Modern Warfare last year, the focus has been to bring players together seamlessly in one unified online multiplayer playground. With cross-play, releasing new post-launch maps, modes, weapons and more content drops for free, and launching Warzone, the Free-to-Play, Free-for-Everyone new Call of Duty experience, the Modern Warfare universe will expand, bringing new experiences to players.
We’ve played iconic Modern Warfare series maps of past returning in the new Modern Warfare, including classic maps like Rust, Shipment, Crash and Vacant. Plus, in Warzone we’ve also experienced classic Modern Warfare series locations like Gulag and Boneyard in new ways.
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.
“In the meantime, we can look forward to enjoying this return to the one of the greatest single player experiences ever, beautifully remastered by Beenox. And also continue to enjoy the full Modern Warfare universe experience whether you’re jumping into Multiplayer or dropping into Warzone.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered has been developed by Beenox and should be available to everyone to play during 2020.
Meanwhile, COD Warzone remains a free-to-play version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare, offering a new Battle Royale experience alongside the main game.
