Allegedly, it will also have a multiplayer suite, contrary to previous reports.
It’s a busy, busy time for the Call of Duty franchise. Activision’s post-launch support for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is trudging along, while Call of Duty: Mobile continues to perform strongly as well. More notably, they recently confirmed that the long-rumoured free to play battle royale title, Call of Duty: Warzone, will be releasing in full tomorrow. And, of course, a full-fledged new entry in the series is also due out at the end of the year.
But reportedly, that’s not all we’re going to see from the franchise in the coming months. Recently, prominent Call of Duty leaker Okami took to Twitter to claim that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered 2 will be releasing this year. Similar reports have emerged before as well, but while those claimed that the game wouldn’t have a multiplayer component, Okami says it will. In a separate tweet, they also say we’ll be hearing about the game “sooner than people think.”
In 2016, Activision and Infinity Ward released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (which did have multiplayer) as part of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, before also releasing it as a standalone title the following year.
Activision have, in recent months, said on multiple occasions that more remasters and reimagined titles are in development, and will be coming soon.
That said, given that this isn’t coming from any official channels, take this with a grain of salt for now. We’ll keep you updated in case we hear anything more, so stay tuned.

I think we'll be hearing about it sooner than people think
