A number of rumors from the Call of Duty community about Modern Warfare 2 Remastered have narrowed down an announcement and release date, off the back of correctly predicting CoD: Warzone

Leaker and YouTuber TheGamingRevolution is one source for these rumors, having correctly predicted or leaked a number of CoD features before they were official – such as Modern Warfare’s Gunfight mode – in the past. 

He has been criticized by Infinity Ward for fabricating information in the past, but has since discussed Warzone in detail, much of which has turned out to be accurate. 

Activision
Warzone was correctly predicted by CoD leakers, namely TheGamingRevolution.

In a March 12 tweet, he provided a list of games that are in the works at Activision, Call of Duty’s publisher. 

Among other titles, TGR claims that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will come, alongside a free-to-play CoD title developed by Sledgehammer Games. These will be on top of the 2020 CoD title, which will be developed by Treyarch. 

He also supplemented his tweet to confirm that a “follow up” to Modern Warfare is being worked on. 

These leaks from TheGamingRevolution have been supplemented by more information from Okami, another Call of Duty leaker. Okami was one of the earliest leakers to claim MW2 remastered is on the way, with their initial claims coming at the end of February

However, Okami added to their predictions with more information on a potential remaster, explaining that they expect an announcement in the next two to three months, with a release coming in 2020.

When is MW2 remastered coming out?

This would put the announcement during May or June, slightly later than the time of year we have come to expect CoD hints and leaks regarding the next title in the series. 

If an announcement was made around that time, a release date would likely follow in late 2020, around November time.

It is not clear whether the remaster would be released alongside Treyarch’s CoD 2020, or would be a standalone title. Back in 2016, Modern Warfare Remastered was released alongside Infinite Warfare.

While unconfirmed, Okami correctly predicted a number of Warzone features, as well as the March 10 release date. This does not necessarily confirm their most recent claims, but does provide evidence of a track record.

If the leaks are to be believed, Activision have an incredible amount of Call of Duty related content on the way to fans. 

In March 2018, two years ago now, the first leaks of a Modern Warfare 2 Remaster were revealed, but things have been relatively quiet since. We will continue to bring you the latest on an MW2 remaster as it becomes available.

While we’re in the midst of the Call of Duty League off-season, Atlanta FaZe is hosting an enormous event with $25,000 up for grabs in the Black Ops 4 Throwback Invitational.

From Ghosts competitions to Modern Warfare 2 tournaments, the current off-season has treated us to a proper look back in time. Many of the world’s best CoD players from over the years have gathered together for a handful of events already and there are no signs of the festivities slowing down soon.

Atlanta FaZe is next in line for a major event, and sights are set on the more recent Black Ops 4. From CDL talent to Academy players and even those that made it through open qualifiers, the best of the best are set to compete.

It’s one of the biggest tournaments over the off-season, taking place across multiple days. Fear not though, we’ve got you covered with a complete overview of all there is to know.

How to watch the Black Ops 4 Throwback Invitational

Get ready for a long weekend of action. The Black Ops 4 event is set to kick off on October 23 and run through to October 25. No exact times have been locked in just yet, but we’ll update you as soon as the information is made available.

There’s every chance that individual competitors will be streaming their own perspectives during the matches. However, ATL FaZe is also hosting the event through a dedicated hub stream that we’ve embedded below for your convenience.

Teams competing in the Black Ops 4 Throwback Invitational

Not only is this a step back in time, but it’s also a unique look ahead. FaZe aims to give fans their first “opportunity to see new 2021 CDL 4v4 rosters in action.”

Black Ops 4 Throwback Invitational Format

Not much is known about the structure just yet, though it’s clear teams will begin in various groups. 20 teams in total have been revealed, though four teams from the open qualifiers have already been relegated to the first round of the lower bracket.

This means we can expect to see four groups of four in the initial stages. After the opening matchups, the most successful teams within each group will likely advance through to the double-elimination bracket.

$25,000 is on offer. Only three teams can actually place in the money though. $15,000 will be awarded to the top team, second place will be treated to $7,500, while third place nabs $2,500 for their efforts.
