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.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
