Activision hasn’t even officially announced it yet but videos of what appears to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered are already on YouTube.

Footage for the entire Modern Warfare 2 single-player campaign is currently up on the YouTube channel TheGamingRevolution. There are also videos of all the cutscenes and breakdowns of individual levels. One level in particular, “No Russian,” has already garnered hundreds of thousands of views.

The game’s notorious fourth mission has the player take part in a gruesome massacre at an airport, either gunning down civilians or simply watching as the terrorists alongside them do. The remastered version looks like it’s basically unchanged from the original. In the original German and Japanese versions of the game, the player automatically received a game over if they killed any of the civilians. It’s unclear if those regional differences will still exist.


A remaster of the first Modern Warfare was originally released back in 2016 as an exclusive for those who purchased the special edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. A standalone version wasn’t released until the following year.

Modern Warfare 2 Remastered appeared to leak yesterday when a listing for the game temporarily went up on the German PlayStation Store. It included a short teaser trailer with updated graphics and a release date of today, March 31. Prior to that data miners had found references to the remaster in the upcoming update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Activision did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Update: 1:05 p.m. ET: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is real and out right now, but only on PS4. It won’t arrive on PC and Xbox One for another month according to IGN. The remaster includes only the game’s single-player campaign and no multiplayer.

Without multiplayer I can’t see myself buying it. Hopefully they’ll incorporate those MW2 maps into MW (2019). Or maybe they’re just waiting to drop those maps on MW2 (2021).
