If you didn’t fancy paying the heinous $80 asking price of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy Edition, just so you could play COD 4: Modern Warfare Remastered, then your patience may have paid off. A number of retailer listings of popped up, including on Amazon, for a standalone release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered. 

The leak comes by way of Amazon Japan and US rental service Gamefly. Both have the PlayStation 4 pegged for a June 20th launch, with Xbox One users waiting until July 20th. This fits into the month’s timed DLC exclusivity deal Sony has going on with Call of Duty right now. There’s no mention of a PC release, although this is probably because there won’t be a physical retail copy. Expect to see it on Steam alongside the Xbox One release.

Up until now, if you wanted the remastered version of the Call of Duty which defined a generation, you had to splash out for the bungled which came with Infinite Warfare. COD: Modern Warfare Remastered includes the original campaign in all its glory, with updated visuals, higher resolution support and enhanced audio, as well as the full multiplayer suite.

 

A word of warning for those of you hoping to pick up the standalone Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster - Activision surely won’t let this go cheap. This is the same outfit which still charges £20 for a copy of COD: Ghosts in a Steam sale, so I suspect this is going to be $30 as an absolute minimum. 

We’ll update you if we hear any more on this situation. It shouldn’t be long until we hear one or the other, June 20th is less than three weeks away.

I would laugh if they decided to sell it for $60... Why do I feel like I will be laughing? :/

It was only a matter of time until they started selling MW1 as a standalone version, but even then 30$ for now 10 year old game, even remastered, doesn't really sound that appealing.


Let alone the fact that they also have microtransactions and are charging for DLC maps that were also sold on the original release as well for a lower price !


Activision is just filled and run by a bunch of greedy assholes, every single one of them.

i assume their target is people who loved the previous mw1. personally i loved mw2, and if there was a remastered i would definitely buy it, maybe from key sites or wait a sale or a price drop, but i would buy it. As always they rely on their solid fan base... i ask myself how long they can go on.

All players who own the original COD MW will get COD MW Remastered for free.
if they say this how we will get it 4 free? COD 4 is not on steam. Or at least my COD.

I still have my original pc copy of the game. If want to play COD 4 again I'll just play that instead of shelling out more money for a game I already own.

30$? naah thanks! i won't pay even 1 cent for a game which was released in 2007 and just got better graphics in 2016. i think that this should be upgrade type of thing because i have original version of modern warfare and it would be fair to get 1 free copy of remastered edition!
