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.
