Call of Duty leaked TheGamingRevolution has claimed that Modern Warfare 2 remastered multiplayer is still in the works and set for release, despite Activision statements to the contrary. 

Even though Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been going strong and offered a soft reboot on the hugely popular CoD series, plenty of fans have been hoping to see more still from the franchise’s roots.

There are maps in CoD: Modern Warfare’s multiplayer from Call of Duty 4, and the recent release of Modern Warfare 2’s remastered campaign has stirred the nostalgia further – but fans are hoping for more, especially in the form of a full-blown throwback multiplayer experience.

Modern Warfare 2’s iconic campaign has returned but there is no multiplayer to accompany it.

There have been rumors that, as well as the campaign, Modern Warfare 2 remastered would also have the game’s iconic multiplayer attached as well. Though, that hasn’t been the case.

Activision’s blog claimed that they aren’t planning to release the full-blown mutiplayer but, instead, work in some maps. Yet, TheGamingRevolution claims that isn’t the case. The reliable CoD leaker claimed that the mode is very much in the works and, according to his sources, is being playtested. 

The YouTuber also added that he reckoned that the release of Modern Warfare 2’s remastered campaign was a test to see the response to its release. 

In his latest video, the YouTuber even had a Twitter user send him a conversation between themselves and Activision support, with the support team member saying that Modern Warfare 2 remastered multiplayer would be releasing. 

In the recording, the Activision support team member said that, though the plans hadn’t been released, to their knowledge, Modern Warfare 2 remastered multiplayer was going to be arriving at some point.

Of course, despite the conversation with Activision support, TheGamingRevolution noted that these employees don’t always have the inside information and answer questions to the best of their ability.

Yet, with his source claiming that Modern Warfare 2 remastered multiplayer is, indeed, in the works, the YouTuber believes it will be coming out.

As for when that release would be, however, the reliable leaker couldn’t offer up any further insight, so we’ll just have to wait and see if he is correct once again.
