What you need to know

  • The first screenshots and trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered have surfaced via the PlayStation Store, providing an early look at Activision's upcoming remaster.
  • The revised Modern Warfare 2 release is slated to launch on March 31, 2020, priced around $30.

Activision is gearing up for a surprise return of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, with listings surfacing for the unannounced remaster, following rampant rumors last week. The hit shooter looks to make a return on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this week, with a PlayStation Store listing surfacing from Germany, laced with screenshots and a trailer for the latest Modern Warfare rendition.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered sets out to revise the full single-player campaign, including improved textures, animations, and HDR lighting. The listing prices the remaster at €24,99, indicating availability will fall around $30 in the U.S. However, it appears both multiplayer and cooperative modes will be excluded, with a handful of classic maps instead joining the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 roster.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered follows the 2016 remaster of its predecessor, which saw visual upgrades shipped nearly a decade after the original release. The same goes for its second entry, although this time shipping standalone, rather than bundled alongside a mainline title, like Infinite Warfare.

The PlayStation Store listing also offers official screenshots, providing our first look at this beauty running on the system:

  • No spec ops? Shame. I loved the game, but wouldn't go far above £10 for it again if it is campaign only. With the MP, then yes, £25 is a decent price.
