It looks like Activision may be planning another remastered version of a classic Call Of Duty, and for a surprisingly reasonable price.
E3 isn’t going to have any secrets left at this point, if the latest video game leak is true.
It certainly sounds plausible: IGN Italia caught the Italian Amazon site listing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a listing which was then quickly taken down once everyone noticed.
The release date was April 30, which is surprisingly close. It’s also just a couple of weeks before the main reveal event for Black Ops 4. Although whether that makes it more or less believable is hard to say.
The other key point is that it was down for just €19.99 (£17), which seems unusually reasonable given that the work put into the first remaster was actually quite substantial.
Although it can easily be found for not much more than £20 now, the first game is officially £34.99. It was also a PlayStation 4 exclusive on its initial release.
Of course, the controversy with the first remaster was that it was originally only sold as part of the expensive Legacy Edition that came with that year’s Infinite Warfare. But if this leak is true that’s not what’s happening with Modern Warfare 2.
So either Activision are completely changing their approach this time round or… the rumour isn’t true.
