Rumor: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Might Become a Standalone Title
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered may be hitting retail stores as a standalone title at the end of next month.
If you’ve wanted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered without having to purchase Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as well then you might be in luck. Today Amazon Japan put up a listing on their website for the remaster of the hit 2007 first-person shooter, adding more fuel to the rumor that the game will be released as a standalone title.
According to the link, which can be found here, the game is scheduled to be released on June 20th, 2017. Earlier this month, Gamefly listed the title on its website, with the same release date for the PlayStation 4 version. Interestingly, a separate listing on the rental website also claimed that the Xbox One version would be released a full month after the PS4 version, on July 20th, 2017. These two links have since been removed.
Currently, the only way to purchase and play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is by purchasing either the Digital Deluxe, Legacy, Legacy Pro, or Legacy and Destiny Bundle editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Those versions cost $99.99, $79.99, $119.99, and $129.99 respectively.
As of the time of this writing, Activision has not announced whether or not these rumors are true. If they are, it will most likely be announced soon.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered includes the original campaign and multiplayer modes from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, completely upgraded for current generation hardware, with a few extras included. For instance, in what was considered an incredibly controversial move, Activision has included Supply Drops in the title, which are essentially loot boxes that will give the player a variety of random, micro-DLC. These Supply Drops can be purchased with either Depot Credits, which can be earned in-game, or with COD Points, which can be purchased using real-life money.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare were both released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 4th, 2016.
