Timeline

Rumors of Modern Warfare 2's remaster began all the way back in 2018, nearly two years ago, when it first appeared in an Amazon Italy listing by Activision Blizzard. Since then, it has been rated by Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC), a South Korean video game content rating board; And most recently, key art and details of the bundle have been discovered in the files of the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update.

The theory that Activision was simply waiting for the right time to release the title is supported when you take a look at the legal text seen in the Reveal Trailer, which has a copyright date of both 2009 (Modern Warfare 2's original release year) and 2018 - not 2020.

Admittedly, it's disappointing that the Multiplayer mode which defined a generation will not be remastered at this time, but it's an understandable decision. Splitting the playerbase between Modern Warfare, Warzone, Modern Warfare 2, and Treyarch's upcoming title would not only segregate the player pools, but also require four titles to be in development while the studios are expected to work toward their next release.
