Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered just came out recently and it was only focused on campaign and it was a downloadable content for Modern Warfare 2019. So why do that? Game publisher Activision gives us the reason.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered reason for skipping multiplayer
Activision revealed the reason why Modern Warfare 2 Remastered does not have multiplayer or the Spec Ops mode. The publisher said that they did not want to split the multiplayer community with another title. Modern Warfare 2019 has its own thriving multiplayer community, but now it shares a spot with Warzone, a free-to-play mode, which is also very popular right now. By adding another one due to MW2 would not be productive in their eyes.
The best way to do this, told the publisher, was to make remakes of classic maps from the original version of MW2 and maybe from other titles as well. It will then be placed in MW 2019’s multiplayer mode. It is a win – win situation for both Activision and the gaming community. Season 3 is just around the corner, so expect some really good remakes coming to MW 2019.
Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is now available on PlayStation 4. Xbox One and PC versions might be coming at a later time.
