We've finally had MW2 Campaign Remastered, but it's left players a bit hollow - where is the multiplayer?
A remaster of Modern Warfare 2's immensely popular multiplayer is something that fans have been craving for, ever since the release of the remastered campaign.
With a high demand for remastered multiplayer action, will it ever see the light of day?
Here's everything we know about a potential remaster of Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer.
Sledgehammer Games Working On Remaster? - 22nd February
According to leaker @MrLeaks5, the smaller studios of Sledgehammer Games are working on a "fan favorite" remaster.
Could the studios be putting their efforts towards a remastered multiplayer for Modern Warfare 2?!
MW2 Multiplayer Remastered Release Date
As it stands there is no release date for MW2 Multiplayer Remastered and there's no assurances that there ever will be one.
Could The Multiplayer Have Already Been Developed?
So far there hasn't been much talk about the multiplayer for Modern Warfare 2 Remastered if there was to be a remake of this game you would have to assume it would be its biggest selling point.
According to sources, the reason why a multiplayer has not been released is to avoid splitting up the player base and increasing the workload for developers. Modern Warfare and Warzone are already very successful and there would be no need to introduce a third online game.
In An Activision blog post, the company states that they don’t want to release the multiplayer experience as a 'standalone pack' but would rather continue to build Modern Warfare’s experience and bring ‘more classic map experiences’ within that universe.
TheGamingRevolution believes the multiplayer has been remastered and in the past has claimed that it has been done and ready to go, but it's being saved for a "rainy day".
Once the game arrives on PC, dataminers can potentially dive into the code and find out what's hidden.
Given that the game was released by itself, the likelihood seems slim at the point. It's also worth noting this game was developed for the current generation of consoles, so if we were expecting to see it, it's likely to be within the next few months; otherwise, it's unlikely we will see it at all unless it was again developed for next-gen.
COD Leaker Okami has, however, broke the hearts of millions by announcing that the MW2 Remastered multiplayer will NOT be direct remaster and instead the maps will be added to Modern Warfare.
It's no secret that there were plenty of issues with MW2's multiplayer, MW2 Remastered would need lots of change to the online multiplayer.
However, that hasn't stopped it from being one of the most memorable Call of Duty games to date.
Towards the end of May, it was noticed by fans that the Australian classification board listed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered as 15+.
This could again be a hint at the campaign, however many have noted that this rating is quite low for the campaign and would more than likely receive a higher rating if it was the case.
