Is a remaster of Modern Warfare 2 in the works? Infinity Ward

Rumors are flying around once again that a Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Edition might be in the works. Granted, these rumors have been around since last year and have yielded nothing concrete since then, but this series of tweets hints that the rumors may have been right all along.

Robert Bowling, a former developer at Infinity Ward for over six years, tweeted a flurry of posts recently hinting at the possibility of a Modern Warfare 2 remaster. The first tweet, pictured above, shows the iconic squad from Modern Warfare labeled "OP Kingfish - 10/8/13." This references Operation Kingfish, which supposedly took place before the events of Modern Warfare 2. The tweet that followed once again referenced Modern Warfare 2, specifically one of the scenes close to the end of the campaign.

There have been rumors going around for about a year now that a remaster of 2009's Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare 2, might be in the works. First, there was the leaked ratings board post that showed that a Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Edition was in development. This was followed by a premature listing on Amazon, a Twitch Stream hinting at the possibility of a MW2 Remaster, a heck of a lot of theories and speculation, and now, the abovementioned tweets from a former Infinity Ward developer.

Of course, whether or not the rumors are true, this won't the first time developer Infinity Ward decided to "go back to its roots". In 2016, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was released, bringing the 2007 title up to modern standards. Modern Warfare: Remastered featured improved visuals and all-new features, as well as revamped gameplay that made one of the most critically-acclaimed shooters of all time even better. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was very positively received by the community, both by newcomers to the franchise who got to experience the title for the first time, as well as Call of Duty veterans who were able to appreciate the hard work that went into updating the game.
