As sure as night follows day, a new Call Of Duty title will launch every single year. However, recent claims from a leaker with a reliable track record suggest that 2020 will see a completely new game in the popular FPS series... and a return to an old favourite. Specifically, 2009's insanely popular Modern Warfare 2, a game many Call Of Duty fans still hail as a high-point for the franchise.
Whispers of a Modern Warfare 2 remaster have been around for years now, but there's ever been anything all that concrete to suggest that there was any legitimacy to the rumours. While you should still take this latest report with a huge pinch of salt, the person making the claims has accurately predicted Call Of Duty news in the past.
@Okami13, previously leaked news of 2019's Modern Warfare Gunfight alpha before it was announced. They've now taken to Twitter to claim that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will launch this year, complete with multiplayer. For those of us who grew up spending our weekends and evenings running around on Rust and Terminal, this is potentially huge... but I would advise treating the reports with a healthy degree of scepticism for now.
Okami13 also recently made the claim that the new Modern Warfare's battle royale mode - supposedly called Warzone - will be releasing on March 10th - with a trailer set to drop on Monday. This lines up with reports from last month that suggested Warzone would be coming in early March.
Certainly, if Warzone does finally arrive next week, it would lend a little more credence to Okami13's claims that a Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is in the works.
We know that Activision isn't shy about remastering previous Call Of Duty games - especially the most popular ones. 2016 saw the release of a remastered version of the original Modern Warfare to accompany the launch of the considerably less-popular Infinite Warfare.
We also know that Activision doesn't anticipate this year's new Call Of Duty will be as successful as 2019's Modern Warfare, a game that absolutely smashed a number of impressive sales records for the franchise. Perhaps the publisher plans to re-release another old favourite alongside the new game to sweeten the pot? We'll have to wait and see.
