One of the most popular COD games of all time, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is still played by thousands to this day! With COD 4 Remastered now released alongside Infinite Warfare, many Call of Duty fans are hoping for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. Of course another COD could be remastered next year but is that likely?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered?!
Gaming INTEL predict that Call of Duty 2017 will be heading back in time. If this is true, we may not see a remaster coming out this year as a big reason why Infinity Ward released COD 4 remastered alongside Infinite Warfare, was because of the uproar from it heading into the future. Infinity Ward developed MW2. Another point is that MW2 Remastered wouldn’t fit in the development cycle of Sledgehammer games in 2017. This team did however help with the development of MW3 but that won’t be released before MW2 remastered.
Another hurdle for making this game a reality in 2017 are the development teams available. Raven Software did a great job with MW Remastered, so it’s likely Activision would want to use them again, as they’re a proven team for this type of development. They are still working on the final 6 maps which are due to be released in December and MW Remastered took between 18 months and 2 years to develop. However, this doesn’t mean this is a closed case. Activision are good at keeping development news away from the public, it’s still a possibility that they’re working with other teams and even with Raven Software included on this already.
If MW2 was remastered next year it would go down extremely well with the Call of Duty community (especially in 4K UHD, HDR and 60 FPS)! Judging by our poll on twitter that had 6753 votes, 46% voted for Modern Warfare 2 to get remastered next. Other votes include 15% for MW3, 24% for Black Ops Series and the other remaining 15% for World at War. However, WaW being remastered is unlikely with it just being announced as an Xbox One backwards compatibility game.

As many of you will know, Treyarch, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games take it in turns to develop a Call of Duty game. Now it is Sledgehammer’s turn to develop COD 2017! This year, Beenox Team, Certain Affinity and Raven Software helped Infinity Ward develop MW remastered. We will probably see these Gaming developers help again for Sledgehammer if they’ve already decided to remaster MW2. Overall, we wouldn’t bet on Modern Warfare 2 Remastered coming in 2017. BUT, we also wouldn’t rule it out completely!
