Is 'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' Going To Be Remastered For 2019?
The rumour mill has been running wild for a few years now with whispers of a possible Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remaster, but there's still been no official confirmation from Activision.
However, with speculation still increasing, it looks pretty much nailed on that in 2019, we could well see a glorious new version of one of (if not the) greatest COD games ever produced.
And it isn't all just wishful thinking. In fact, there are quite a few solid reasons to believe that a remastered version of the game may be in the works.
Firstly, 2019 will mark a decade since the initial release of Modern Warfare 2. Given that Modern Warfare Remastered dropped close to the original's anniversary it does seem likely that the same treatment could be in store for the follow-up.
Speaking of Modern Warfare Remastered, that game was met with a great reaction from fans and critics alike. So wouldn't it be in Activision's best interests to do the same thing with what was arguably a much better title?
Then there's the fact that Modern Warfare 2 is yet to come to backwards compatibility on Xbox One. Unlike other titles such as Black Ops, Black Ops 2, and so on, MW2 still hasn't been brought to backwards compatibility. Could this indicate that the publisher is waiting for a remaster before pushing the button?
We'll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, Sledgehammer Games co-founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield have left the studio behind Call of Duty WW II to shift their attention to new 'executive duties' within Activision.
"We thank Glen and Michael for their tremendous body of work on Call of Duty and look forward to continuing to collaborate with them in their new roles," an Activision spokesperson said in a prepared statement sent to Glixel.
"These changes have created an opportunity to elevate one of the key leaders at the studio, Aaron Halon, to lead Sledgehammer Games. Aaron is a founding member of Sledgehammer Games and the natural fit to lead the team."
In a statement, Schofield thanked Activision for the opportunity to lead Sledgehammer Games.
"Now, it's time to try other things," he said. "Activision has offered me the opportunity to focus my energy on something I'm very passionate about, exploring new game ideas for the company. It's something I just couldn't pass up.
"Working with such a great studio of developers at Sledgehammer Games has been an honour and the highlight of my career. The team is in great hands with Aaron, he has my full support and confidence."
Speculation continues to grow that this will happen - let's keep everything crossed in the meantime.
