Activision on Call of Duty Remasters: “It’s Something We Talk About and Think About a Lot”
While no formal announcements have been made, Activision is at least thinking about possibly remastering older Call of Duty games.
Speaking with Game Informer, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg talked about the possibility of remastering Call of Duty games, and said that he “would love to play Modern Warfare 1 or the original Black Ops.”
If done well, I think [remasters] can be great. You talk about nostalgia, and people have such connection to the games they love from the last cycle. They want to see what it would look like if someone did it right for this cycle. It’s always the opportunity cost, meaning we need every body we can get to make the content we’re already committed to for our new games. It’s always a matter of finding great people to do that work. I would love to play Modern Warfare 1 or the original Black Ops. There’s certainly a deep well there. No announcements, but it’s something we talk about and think about a lot.
Hopefully, Activision will give a more definitive answer about remasters in the future, but at least we have Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to look forward to. Which CoD games would you like to see remastered?
