Multiplayer References Discovered in Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Files

Modern Warfare 2 Highrise

Last Updated on

Call of Duty fans have been treated to three titles in the last year: Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Campaign. If that wasn’t already enough, players are requesting for a remastered multiplayer portion of the classic 2009 Modern Warfare 2 title.

Since Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Campaign released on Xbox One and PC, data miners have been digging through the in-game files for any sorts of clues or hints they can find.

These files usually give an indication of what to expect or what the developers have been working on. Sure enough, it seems data miners have uncovered various references towards multiplayer within the MW2 Remastered files.

As you can see from the tweet above, it appears the newly-released remaster features a multiplayer file. These reports have since been supported by TheGamingRevolution, who claims to have discovered several other references towards its existence.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Campaign weighs in at a hefty 65GB on PC. Since this seems far too large for just a campaign, it really doesn’t come as much of a surprise to see multiplayer featured within the in-game files.

MW2 Remastered Multiplayer Discovered – But Is It Coming Out?

Activision has previously touched on the prospect of multiplayer and spec-ops. Prior to the release of MW2 Remastered on PS4, Activision claimed they will “bring more classic map experiences” to Modern Warfare.

At the time, it looked like Activision were concerned that multiplayer’s release would split the player base. However, it’s possible for Activision to have changed their mind since then.

Although Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Multiplayer references have been discovered within the files, that does not necessarily confirm that it’s on the horizon. It could be that Activision previously worked on the title, although decided not to release it.

We’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for Call of Duty fans, but in light of recent leaks, it certainly appears as though exciting times are ahead.
