A few days ago, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered appeared on the PlayStation Store in Germany. Gamers were able to play it and seemed like they were having a blast. Well, it turns out that the PlayStation 4 version is out now, and is a 30-day timed exclusive on Sony's machine.
However, it seems like Xbox One X owners are in for a treat. According to the Microsoft Store, the game runs at 4K resolution on the system, and it should look crisp and smooth. The frame rate is also 60 frames per second, so that should enhance precision. If you preorder it now, you instantly get the "UDT Classic Ghost Bundle," available for use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, including the battle royale mode "Warzone."
With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, you can relive the epic single-player campaign from the 2009 blockbuster. It has been fully remastered with improved textures, animations, physically based rendering, high-dynamic range lighting, and more.
The classic returns
You'll have to wait a while
The campaign picks up immediately following the dramatic events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the ground-breaking title that earned worldwide critical acclaim. Modern Warfare 2 is the epitome of gripping and heart-racing action, as players face off against a new threat hellbent on bringing the world to the brink of collapse.

I'm going to hold out for when they just flat out remake the whole game again like the first. I've also heard they removed the airport massacre part of the campaign on the original through an update... Ran out and bought a disc copy to "preserve history"
