Update: As it turns out, the single-player campaign of Cod: MW2 has been remastered and released for the PlayStation 4 as a timed exclusive until April 30, 2020. For players buying the $19.99 game on Sony's console or pre-purchasing it on other platforms (Xbox One and Blizzard's Battle.net on PC) get the Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle, also usable in the latest Cod: MW multiplayer, Spec Ops and the free Warzone version.

It seems Activision wants to continue milking the Modern Warfare franchise, but then with CoD: MW2, the publisher indeed has one of the finest cows to milk. Players of the 2009 blockbuster shooter largely preferred the sequel to the original MW, thanks to an ever more intense campaign and exciting multiplayer modes.

Although the upcoming MW2 remaster is only for the campaign, the official listing (taken down as of writing) reveals several in-game goodies carried over from the MW reboot and Warzone. Activision probably dropped the multiplayer in favor of keeping its healthy Warzone userbase from fragmenting, something which hardcore fans of the MW2 storyline are unlikely to complain about anyways.

As can be seen in the trailer and screenshots, the game will come with improved textures, animations, physical rendering, HDR lighting, and other graphical enhancements, meaning even more manly tears from General Shepherd's iconic betrayal of Ghost during one of the game's most memorable missions.

The game's publishing date is set to March 31, 2020, meaning that players likely have just a day more to wait before getting their hands on the game or it could be that Activision may just announce the title with a release date for sometime later. Either way, we'll find out tomorrow.

Why, the campaign didn't really have replayability, I played it twice, once when new, and then when mw3 dropped do it was fresh on my mind

CoD: MW2 had great multiplayer maps, but the story was terrible- and ridiculous.

That said, I’m very pleased with CoD2019 getting updated maps from the original trilogy.

The updates make it a very full and satisfying game
