Activision has blatantly denied a remaster is in the works for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. A report about the 2011 game getting a remaster pushed the publisher to release a statement saying this was entirely false.
“A remaster of Modern Warfare 3, campaign or multiplayer, does not exist. Any reports otherwise are incorrect,” a spokesperson for Activision told Charlie Intel.
The rumors about the remaster have been swirling around for several months, but this is the first time anything official has been announced from Activision’s side.
Activision released a remastered version of Modern Warfare 2’s campaign in 2020, and soon rumors were suggesting Activision was looking to do the same with Modern Warfare 3. This was not the first time the company had remastered an old Modern Warfare title. Back in 2016, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was also remastered–initially sold through premium editions of Infinite Warfare before going on as a standalone. Unlike Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, Modern Warfare Remastered included both the campaign and multiplayer.
Call of Duty is bigger than it’s ever been, with Activision supporting the series across three main titles: Call of Duty: Warzone, Call of Duty: Mobile, and the annual releases. The next game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and is believed to be set in World War II. Currently, Season 5 is on the way to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
While all of this is gong on, Activision Blizzard is embroiled in a couple of lawsuits. One filed by the State of California for its discrimination and harassment of women. The other is a shareholder who felt they were given “false and misleading” statements about the investigation.
