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.
I was literally just speaking to my source earlier and they were telling me how they were debating dropping MW2r or the Modern Warfare sequel in 2021, the same year that SHG's F2P COD is scheduled to release. I wonder if the campaign drops now, and MP in 2021, or even this year— TheGamingRevolution (@TheGamingRevo2) March 20, 2020
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).
