'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' pops up on South Korea ratings board site

'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' established an ongoing franchise sub-series

Rumors that the "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" campaign is being remastered now appear solid after Korea's official Game Rating board created a database entry for it.

The story mode from 2009's "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" appears to be in line for release after an entry for "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered" became part of the South Korea Game Rating and Administration Committee website.

The GRAC has long been known as a legitimate source of pre-announcement game information.

On this occasion, a newly discovered website entry indicates that "Call of Duty" publisher Activision had approached the GRAC over authorized distribution of the title.

After the release of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" in October 2019, itself a reboot of 2007's sub-series debut "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare", separate rumors have suggested that either "Modern Warfare 2" or an overhauled "Call of Duty: Black Ops" (2010) were in line for release in late 2020.

On March 18, YouTube channel TheGamingRevolution -- considered a credible source after accurate leaks concerning "Modern Warfare" and early March's free multiplayer "Call of Duty: Warzone" -- had reported that 2020's franchise iteration would be a "Black Ops" reboot.

Yet, in the lead up to "Warzone," Twitter user Okami13_ staked his own credibility on several predictions about the debut, claiming that "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered" would then release in 2020 as a singleplayer and multiplayer game.

Could both be true? After all, three "Call of Duty" games have already been released in the last six months: "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare," free iOS and Android "Call of Duty: Mobile," and "Call of Duty: Warzone."

Additionally, a "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered" was released in 2016 as an incentive to purchase that year's "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare."

Timing can change, and TGR is now suggesting that "Modern Warfare 2 Remastered" could emerge in 2021, with the impact of COVID-19 a consideration.

They had previously claimed that four "Call of Duty" games were in development: "Call of Duty 2020" (later identified as "Black Ops"), "Modern Warfare 2 Remastered," a sequel to 2019's "Modern Warfare" and another free-to-play "Call of Duty" from the Sledgehammer studio (SHG).
