(UPDATE): Activision reached out to us and explained that nothing has changed in regards to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. It’s still only available as part of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Their FAQs on Infinite Warfare are kept up to date, and they urge anyone with questions regarding this title or Modern Warfare Remastered to check this page.
Original Story: Gamereactor sat down with Game Director David Pellas of Raven Software to talk about the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered title. When asked how many maps will be available for the remastered version, he seemed to suggest that the game will be sold separately from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Ever since Activision announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, they have always said that the game can only be purchased with Infinite Warfare. Look at the statement from Pellas and see if you think he suggests that Modern Warfare Remastered will be a standalone purchase.
What we announced before today was that we were going to offer 10 maps on launch, and that’s still true. The announcement today is that the six remaining maps we are actually going to be delivering to anyone who purchases Modern Warfare Remastered, anyone who owns it or a version of Infinite Warfare that comes with it, they’re going to get all 16 of the maps for no additional cost.
What many are focusing on is the phrase “anyone who owns it or a version of Infinite Warfare that comes with it.” Until now, all we’ve known is that the only way to get Modern Warfare Remastered is with a version of Infinite Warfare. But now Pellas has hinted that there’s an “or” when it comes to obtaining this remastered title.
Neither Activision nor Raven Software have commented further to clarify the matter. We’ll stay on top of it until then.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will release on November 4, 2016.
