Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is all but confirmed as the age restriction is listed in South Korea.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered seems to have been unintentionally confirmed the other day when the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered campaign was rated in South Korea. Which is a pretty solid guarantee that we will be seeing the release of this game in the next year or so. Whether that’s on the back of another release or on its own we don’t know yet, but it’s coming.
Although, the listing does seem to point to a standalone release, rather than as part of a pack in a brand-new Call of Duty game, as was the release of the Call of Duty 4 remaster which was included with the Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite. The inclusion of the remaster was for most the only reason they bought this terrible game but let’s not go there today…
A twitter user by the name of Nibel posted a link to the South Korean ratings board website, which says the rating was awarded last month. No platforms are currently listed but it will probably be out on all the major platforms of the current-gen and the next-gen.
So, after years of high demand, we’re finally going to get a remastered version of 2009’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and to make things even better it seems like we’re going to get a next-gen release. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is arguably one of the best, if not the best Call of Duty games ever. It definitely holds a special place in my heart.
Rumours of a Modern Warfare 2 remaster began to swirl in 2018 when an Amazon listing was made. The worrying thing was that this listing said that the game would be a single-player only experience, meaning that the universally adored multiplayer won’t be included. Surely Activision are not this stupid?
Remembering Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s single-player was brilliant and many thoroughly enjoyed it but the reason why Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is in such high demand is almost exclusively because of the multiplayer! Not to mention the fact that the single-player campaign was so infamously short that it wouldn’t make any sense to release it on its own.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was critically acclaimed for both its multiplayer and single-player modes. It was rated a whopping 9.5/10 by IGN. It was also one of the most controversial Call of Duty games we’ve seen. Ask any gamer what the most controversial, graphic mission of any game is, and they will most likely tell you it’s “No Russian” from Modern Warfare 2. A mission within which the player goes undercover as a Russian terrorist during a terror attack at an airport.
The mission starts in a lift as the terrorists begin to make their way to the security check-in before proceeding to gun down hordes of civilians and police officers. It was later revealed that player was never prompted to shoot and civilians or police officers and was only told to follow Makarov’s (one of the game’s main antagonists) lead. But most players didn’t know this so you can imagine what happened.
If you’re not familiar with the mission or would like a reminder, check out the video below (Warning, it’s very graphic and viewer discretion is advised)
It seems like things are about to get confusing now the Modern Warfare franchise has been rebooted, with great success too. Of course, the game is not without its faults, but it has definitely resurrected the spirit of Call of Duty giving us one of the greatest editions to the franchise that we’ve seen to date. Meaning we will no doubt be seeing the release of Modern Warfare sequel in the not too distant future.
