The 2011 game seeing a modern comeback finally completes the holy COD trilogy, but it does beg at least one question: What happened to Modern Warfare 2 Remastered? While unconfirmed, the game was the subject of speculation not too long ago, and even saw a few gameplay details leak. Perhaps it’s possible the game never existed in the first place, but it’s also likely the remaster is being saved for a future release.
On that subject, Call Of Duty is in the midst of hyping up the upcoming Black Ops 4 and the advent of its new battle royale mode Blackout. The main game saw a few betas go live earlier this month, while the latter-mentioned Blackout is seeing its anticipated beta debut in September. There’s also the epic additions to Zombies that fans are clamoring for, which includes one of the craziest iterations of the mode yet.
