Is Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Coming in 2017?!

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

We are starting to get closer to the launch of Call of Duty 2017 and possibly Modern Warfare 2 Remastered! Since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered was previously announced it’s been a great winner for Activision so it’s likely that we will see a new Remaster in 2017 along with COD 2017, which is expected to be set in WW2 or Vietnam. The question is whether MW2 will be the next COD to be Remastered.

Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

Call of Duty Series:

As you can see below MW2 was not the next Call of Duty to be released after COD 4, however World at War is a Xbox One Backwards Compatibility game so it’s unlikely that we will see that remastered. So this means  if Activision were to do it in chronological order it will probably be MW2.

MW2 Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

With MW2 having an amazing 170,000 votes to be made Xbox One Compatible this could be a big factor for why it may not be Remastered, however if they were to make it Xbox One Compatible this would be extremely unfair on Playstation with Modern Warfare 2 arguably the best game of all time and Call of Duty having a great partnership with PlayStation. If you would like to vote for MW2 to be backwards compatible you can vote at the Xbox User Voice Backward Compatibility place.

Release Date

As we stated in our COD 2017 article, the last 4 titles have been released between November 4th – 6th in each year. So if MW2 was to get Remastered this year the chances are it will come between November 4th – 6th.

As you can see Modern Warfare 2 Remastered may be just around the corner, however don’t get your hopes up as Activision may release MW2 as an Xbox One Backwards Compatible Game. We are not likely to receive both games. Don’t forget to vote on our poll on which Call of Duty game you think will be Remastered next.
