According to reports, Call of Duty could be ready to release Modern Warfare 2 remastered, but multiplayer won’t be a thing.
For years, FPS gamers have been urging Activision to go back to its roots and remaster one of the biggest titles of all time, MW2. While the game may have driven us mental back in the day, leaving our controllers broke and walls with holes in them, it was a fun game.
In fact, many fans were willing to put all that in the past and even forget the One Man Army noob tubes just to get their hands on a remastered version. However, reports today have suggested that any remaster will not be coming with the multiplayer portion of the game.

The news was released by CharlieIntel, who revealed that sources working on the game. The source claimed that the game would be the campaign only, which would certainly account for the $25 listing on Amazon earlier this week.
The previously remastered game – COD4R was almost double that price and initially had to be bought as part of the legacy edition of COD Infinite Warfare.
So why would Activision do this? Well, they’re apparently still hoping that fans will jump back on the WW2 ship, with their most recent release. Then, of course, there is Black Ops 4 that will be released later this year, and MW2R could affect sales of that.
However, as you can imagine, fans were absolutely furious on Twitter and here are some of the best reactions to the Modern Warfare 2 remastered multiplayer fiasco.
If the MW2 Remastered rumors of it just being a campaign-only remaster, it will be another nail in the coffin for the Call of Duty series. The multiplayer is a major part of any Call of Duty. And this is especially true for MW2.

i refuse to believe this whole MW2 no multiplayer leak because i refuse to believe activison are so stupid that they'd publish a remaster of the most iconic call of duty game of all time, known exclusively for it's multiplayer, without a multiplayer mode

They can't be stupid enough to remaster MW2 without the Multiplayer surely?

Seriously? In what sick and twisted universe is MW2 Remastered made better WITHOUT multiplayer? I really hope it's all a joke, because if they're serious, this is one of the stupidest moves in gaming history. Do they really think anyone will by a MW2 remaster without multiplayer?

“Let’s do a MW2 Remaster but let’s leave out multiplayer” what kinda garbage is that #MW2R I will not buy this now I was stoked for it but now nope MW2 had some of the best MP gameplay ever… oh well at least we can count on @Treyarch #BlackOps4 later this year in October

We’ll have to see how Activision handles this one.
