Insider: More Call of Duty Remasters on the Way
It’s not like anyone was upset by the news that Call of Duty will be taking a break from its annual releases. In February, Bloomberg reported that the Treyarch-developed title would be delayed until 2024. This would mark the first time the mainline series had been delayed since 2004.
In theory, more development means that the final release will take longer, so it would be reasonable to expect that most fans will be patient. Activision seems to doubt this, however, as they plan to release a lot of remasters in the interim. I think people get bored if there isn’t enough to do.
This claim comes from @RalphsValve, a COD insider. They wrote that “Activision are reportedly considering publishing Remastered Call of Duty games repurposed to newer consoles in order to fill the gap between Premium Call of Duty titles.” “World at War and Call of Duty 1 and 2 – compatibility [backwards] for Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare Remastered is currently what’s being discussed. An associate described everything else as “complicated.”
The Modern Warfare remake will apparently be available on the last console. Now that I have said it, it is probably obvious: “Addressing confusion, MWR is supposedly coming Nintendo Switch [its] first [introduction into the Call of Duty franchises for the console,” an insider added.
These remasters will be released sometime next year. However, if Treyarch’s title is delayed, there was no information on the release window. These won’t be only space-filling games, though – an insider said last month that would be getting a Zombies spinoff next __. This means that there could be a lot of Call of Duty. While @RalphsValve has a reputation for being reliable, please take this information with a big pinch of salt.
