Following the appearance of a product listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Remastered on Amazon Italy a while back, new rumors suggest that the unconfirmed title won't include a multiplayer mode.

Call of Duty blog Charlie Intel and Eurogamer both report that, according to their sources, the remaster will only include the single-player campaign. It seems like new evidence supports this.

Charlie Intel also reported that Raven Software, which worked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, isn't developing Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. Rather, there's speculation that Beenox, which assisted Raven Software in developing Modern Warfare Remastered and is currently hiring for positions related to Call of Duty projects, could be behind Modern Warfare 2 Remastered.

As with all rumors of this nature, is best to take this with the requisite grain of salt. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered hasn't been announced, but it appears Activision is cooking something up. We'll keep you posted as soon an official announcement is made.

  • WHAT? I will not be getting this if it has no MP!
  • Don't forget these are just reports
    There's a big chance they're wrong
  • Yeah I'm not getting it without multi-player. Sorry.
  • Wow. If this is legit, another CoD I will hard pass on. Just don't get these companies anymore.
  • It won't launch with MP. The MP will come later as DLC you have to pay for. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!
  • No MP no sale. It's not 1995 anymore.
  • Theres no Hans Zimmer soundtrack doing MP, and that why Theres no point playing MW2 in MP.
  • Don't worry, you can purchase the MP DLC for $59.99.
  • Its like they are listening to my thoughts and thinking "Lets do everything that this guy hates"! For once, after almost 8 years, I decide to buy a COD game and they do this. Bye Bye COD.
  • Call of Duty kinda overstayed its welcome anyway, dontcha think? o u o
  • I'm amazed that they didn't get more aggressive with pricing and launches. They maintain high prices, even in sales. I thought Fortnite would have pushed them to improve, but they obviously don't need to. Gotta be honest, MW2 was my favourite, would like to try the MP again, including Spec Ops.
