1 year ago, Activision surprised with the unannounced launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. Something curious about this improved version is that it did not include the multiplayer that debuted with the original game. If you expected it, we have bad news for you, as clues indicate that it will never come.
In recent years, Activision has not only worked on completely new installments for the Call of Duty series, but also on the remastering of memorable titles, such as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. Something that raised suspicion is why the first included the improved multiplayer component and the second only the campaign … what happened? Well, we never seem to know.

What happened to the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered?
Activision did not explain why it launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered only with its remastered campaign. In fact, the company did not even announce that it would launch the title, unlike the large promotional campaigns for other games. However, fans did not lose hope that one day, equally surprisingly, the enhanced multiplayer would be released to complete the remastered title.
However, the informant RalphsValve shared very unfortunate news on Twitter, as he reports that Activision canceled the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, without offering more details about it.

Since the title’s premiere in 2020, fans speculated that Activision did not release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered with multiplayer to avoid dividing the user base in its multiple active games at that time, an argument that applies today, as we remember that the online environment of the series is currently divided into Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Mobile, not to mention the next game in the franchise.
In case you missed it: the new Call of Duty 2022 will be controversial, according to an insider.
Rumors indicate that Activision is working on new Modern Warfare
In fact, it was rumored years ago that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered would only include the campaign and new clues reveal that Activision is developing a new Call of Duty II: Modern Warfare. That said, it is possible that Activision from the beginning has decided to discard the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered because I was already imagining launching a new game of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, whose new online game might confuse gamers with the remastered game’s improved multiplayer.
As in other cases, we recommend taking this information as something unofficial, since so far Activision has not spoken about it.
