Update: Following on from last month’s rumours, a standalone version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare remaster is now looking more likely than ever. This time around though, we have hard evidence in the form of a leaked image, showing the standalone remaster boxed and ready to hit store shelves.
The image was obtained by CharlieIntel, showing a PS4 version of Modern Warfare Remastered. Right now, there are conflicting release dates, with some claiming that Activision will shadow drop the standalone later today, while others claim the game will launch on the 27th of June. Either way, US retailers already appear to have stock, with some listing the game with a $39.99 price tag.
Original Story: Last year, Activision caught a lot of backlash for tying the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare remaster with the release of Infinite Warfare. Since its release, the only way to play Modern Warfare Remastered is to own the Infinite Warfare ‘Legacy Edition’ or higher. Fortunately, it looks like this may be changed in just a couple of months time.
Earlier this week, some new product pages appeared on GameFly, indicating that the Modern Warfare Remaster would soon become a standalone game. Those pages have since been removed but Call of Duty fan site ‘Charlie Intel‘ managed to spot them beforehand.
According to the pages, the game would be launching on PS4 and Xbox One on the 30th of July. If that is the case, then an announcement should be happening fairly soon. The game would presumably become standalone on PC on the same date.
So far, Activision has not confirmed or denied this leak but E3 is in less than a month so perhaps they were saving this announcement for then.
KitGuru Says: Modern Warfare Remastered reviewed very well and would likely have more players if it were released separately from Infinite Warfare. Do you guys think Activision should release Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone game? Or do you think it’s too late?
