Rumor: CoD: Modern Warfare Remastered Becoming Standalone

New leaks suggest that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – previously only available with certain Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare special editions – will be released as a standalone, boxed game.

According to CharlieIntel, retailers have already begun receiving boxed editions of the game (you can see an image below).

Various reports suggest the game will be receiving a surprise release either today (June 20) or next week, on June 27. US retailer Target has also apparently listed the game at $39.99 in-store.

IGN has contacted Activision for comment, but received no response at time of writing.

Activision’s decision to re-release the much-loved game exclusively as a bonus for Infinite Warfare drew much criticism. It has provided updates since release, from returning modes to classic maps and new personalisation options.

We awarded the remaster an 8.5 last year, saying “it’s not outdated, it’s classic, and the considerable effort that has gone into improving the models, textures, and effects have enhanced it enough that playing through the campaign again was rewarding.”
