Call of Duty


 

Every mainline installment of Call of Duty to launch on the previous console generation has been given new life on the Xbox One’s backward compatibility program, with the exception of Modern Warfare 2. So where the hell is it?

Despite being one of the series’ most popular installments, if not the most popular, Modern Warfare 2 has so far evaded Xbox’s backward compatibility program, or any other kind of official rerelease. A remastered edition was leaked earlier this year on the Italian version of Amazon, with a release date of April 30th. Obviously, no such a release came to fruition, which may be for the best, considering the game was reported to be launching without its multiplayer.

This year’s Call of Duty is continuing the Black Ops subseries with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but the industry seems to be gearing us toward a Modern Warfare mindset. Two of the games recently added to Xbox’s backward compatibility program were Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, while 2019’s Call of Duty will reportedly continue the subseries with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.

Everything seems primed for Modern Warfare 2 to make a comeback sometime in the next year or so. With 2019’s Call of Duty title scheduled to come from Modern Warfare 2 developer Infinity Ward, this resurgence could come in the form of a remastered edition launching alongside the new installment, similar to how Modern Warfare Remastered launched in tandem with Infinite Warfare.

Until then, fans have this year’s Black Ops 4 to look forward to, but the shooter’s recently confirmed post-launch content strategy has quelled much of the excitement. All of the game’s main DLC will be locked behind a season pass, no longer allowing players to pick and choose the bonus content that interests them.

There’s one pretty obvious clue a Modern Warfare 2 remaster is coming

Xbox One backward compatibility may have spoiled a major Call of Duty surprise by simple omission.
