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.
