Talk about stirring up a hornet’s nest. Activision recently announced and clarified some fine print that many may have missed for the upcoming Modern Warfare Remastered.
For many, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a favorite of the franchise. IGN, in their review back in 2007 described the game as a “jarring, intense, and gripping take on war in the new millennia.” By November 2013, the game has sold 15.7 million copies. There’s no denying it’s popularity. So when Activision announced “Modern Warfare Remastered” for next-gen consoles, excitement took over…then slowly turned to frustration.
It was eventually announced that Modern Warfare Remastered could only be obtained through the purchase of the Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. For some, the Call of Duty franchise has become stale. On top of that, to now have to buy a game you don’t want to get a game you do…is frustrating. Of course, you could always trade in your physical copy Infinite Warfare and just keep Modern Warfare and be on your way. With this new announcement by Activision however, it appears that won’t be the case.
If you purchased a physical copy of the game for Infinite Warfare, you will need that disc to play Modern Warfare Remastered. This announcement crushes any idea of trading in your Infinite Warfare disc for something else you’d rather play. Obviously, this does not apply to those who have purchased the Digital Copies of Infinite Warfare that include Modern Warfare Remastered. Currently, there is no plan to sell Modern Warfare Remastered separate from Infinite Warfare, although it has not been ruled out.
