'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' Multiplayer Is Getting The Remaster It Deserves

I think it's pretty fair to say that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remains one of the most popular entries in the franchise, possibly even one of the most-loved first-person shooters of all time.

It just hit on so many different levels. While the stunning and cinematic campaign filled with twists, turns, and shocking betrayals was a definitie highlight, most of us could tear through that in a weekend. It left a lasting impression and invited plenty of replayability, sure, but the real meat of the 2009 shooter came from its multiplayer - which to this day is regarded as a highpoint for the series.

Everything just came together in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer to create the perfect experience. The maps and modes were varied and offered plenty of ways to play, and the gameplay itself as sleek and smooth as you'd hope for from an FPS. It rewarded players who put the time in without completely alienating those who were trying to get involved for the first time, which is a tricky balancing act to pull off.

Considering all this, it remains a genuine shame that when Activision released a remaster of Modern Warfare 2's single-player campaign earlier this year, that iconic multiplayer was nowhere to be see. It was suggested at the time that this was because Activision and Infinity Ward didn't want to fragment its playerbase and pull people away from 2019's Modern Warfare. Understandable, but still kind of a shame, especially since the reboots version of classic maps like Rust just didn't feel quite the same.

The good news is that Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer as you remember it is coming back - just not in the way you might have expected or hoped for. See, Activision might have no intention to revive it in an official capacity, but a team of eight dedicated fans are more than happy to pick up the slack and give the people what they want.

The ambitious project was revealed yesterday through a Discord Q&A (via CharlieIntel). The development team are working to remaster nine of the original game's classic maps in total, including Terminal and Rust. All of the classic weapons and Deathstreaks are also returning to the far, so it really should be Modern Warfare 2 as a we remember it... just with a substantial lick of paint.

It's early days for the project, which is expected to launch at some point in 2021. For now, you can keep track of the team's progress via the development Discord server.
