Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Was Released 10 Years Ago Today
| Last updated
Today marks an entire decade since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which tested the boundaries when it came to its controversial 'No Russian' mission.
The first-person shooter game was developed by Infinity Ward and was launched worldwide on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows - it was also released some years later on macOS.
10 years ago today, MW2 came out. This game alone pushed gaming and YouTube onto different levels. The memories attached with this one will never be forgotten and will probably never be matched. pic.twitter.com/hb98BLJxHl

Celebrating the milestone, one fan wrote: "Best online game ever! Amazing memories." Another added: "Peak elite gaming times! These days determined what kind of player/person you were going to become."
Someone else suggested that this is where YouTuber KSI forged a career, writing: "So many careers came out of this game - even look at KSI, where he is now and he started on MW2".

Modern Warfare 2 has remained incredibly popular with fans over the years, so here's some good news for them: the newest version of the game could be bringing back the classic maps, if a recent leak is anything to go by.
According to TheGamingRevolution - some of the files suggest that a whole load of fan-favourite maps from the franchise are set to return, which may include: Crash, Vacant, Rust and Scrapyard.
Of course, there's no official confirmation from the developers of the game, so don't get too excited, but this isn't the first time it's come up.
Before Modern Warfare came out, the same leaker apparently spotted evidence of the one and only MW2 map, Rust, in the beta.
Which video game would you like to see remastered?

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, considering MW2 is the one game LADbible readers want remastering the most.
It wouldn't be completely out of character for COD's producers at Activision, as they released Modern Warfare Remastered pretty damn close to the anniversary. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
