A Call of Duty leaker claims to have revealed even more details about the hotly-anticipated Modern Warfare 2 remaster that is allegedly in production.

Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most highly regarded games in the Call of Duty franchise, and fans have been clamoring for a remaster for years, despite the fact that the game only released originally in 2009.

With Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare being remastered in 2016 alongside the release of Infinite Warfare, rumors heated up over when MW2 would get its own next-gen version, and now a reliable leaker has revealed more on the possibility of MW2R.

Activision
The CoD 4 remaster was met with much praise from the community.

After previously revealing details on Warzone and Gunfight ahead of their official announcements, Okami13 revealed on Twitter that while a remaster is in the works, it “won’t be a direct remaster of the multiplayer.”

This will be incredibly disappointing to players who have been waiting for more news, though Okami did soften the blow slightly. He added: “Instead, they’re taking the maps and adding them to MW 2019 so as to not split the community again.”

Although Okami does have a reliable track record with his Call of Duty leaks on Warzone and Gunfight, it must be reitarated that this information is not confirmed.

The premise is certainly an interesting one, especially if they plan on bringing all Modern Warfare 2 maps to the current title, but it would be odd to see some of those classic maps in a completely different game.

The biggest thing that players will take away from this, though, is that the latest developments suggest Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer won’t be getting a full remaster.

A few days prior to Okami’s tweet, a South Korean rating agency leaked a classification for Modern Warfare 2, but it was only for the campaign, with no mention of multiplayer or Special Ops included.

Activision
Modern Warfare 2 was the home of some of the most iconic maps in Call of Duty.

Of course, there won’t be any way to verify this until an official announcement is made – if one is made at all.

If there is no Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, there will never be any confirmation of the rumors, but it’s very possible that the regular flow of information is coming from a place of authority; we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed.

Dr Disrespect explodes after stream snipers ruin charity Warzone event

Dr Disrespect was all set and ready to go in Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 ‘Cracked Creators’ Warzone event, though his run was cut short due to pesky stream snipers that ruined his day.

The latest Warzone event threw elite players and content creators into Verdansk with a unique twist. Rather than forming their own teams, streamers had to pick their Duo from a list of “cracked” players.

From Seth ‘Scump’ Abner to Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier, all of the biggest names were lined up to compete for a good cause. For most of them, the event went smoothly as they squared off with others in Warzone. For Dr Disrespect and his chosen partner ZLaner, things didn’t get off to a good start.

“It’s phony desperation everywhere,” Doc said in his very first round of action.

The pair ran into alleged stream snipers in the very first round, and after the Two-Time was executed out of nowhere he declared, “I’m never playing in another Warzone tournament without a delay, ever.”

Unfortunately for them, things didn’t improve over the next few rounds. Doc and ZLaner were unable to close out a single map win throughout their run in the event. They dropped two maps against Joseph ‘Merk’  DeLuca & Clint ‘Maven’ Evans before falling out of the lower bracket to Trevor May and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper.

“That is it for me today stream,” Doc said the moment their final tournament map came to an end. “I am literally losing brain cells.”

Opposing players had tracked down their location in every map just to be the ones to steal the moment. For the next event, Dr Disrespect assured that the duo will “throw the delay on” to prevent any more stream sniping shenanigans.

“After the first game I checked out,” he admitted.

“The tournament completely took me out of it. Lesson learned. I didn’t think it was gonna be that big of an issue… but it’s a horrifically large issue.”

It didn’t take long before Doc took aim at stream snipers on social media as well. He followed up with a hilariously scathing tweet to put them in their place, listing off insult after insult as only he could.

“Nothin like being stream sniped by a bunch of blonde banged, chubby-cheeked, inward kneed, desperation for attention, purple brace face, unathletic, D- grades, Cheeto bags constantly emptied wannabe gamers… during a charity tournament,” he posted during the Oct. 21 event’s run-time.

Dr Disrespect and ZLaner weren’t the only ones impacted by the problem during the event. Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop also vented his frustrations, after losing every map he played in the Warzone competition as well.

“I’m officially retiring from Warzone tournaments,” he declared on Twitter.

Some Duos were able to have far more luck throughout the day, however. You can catch up on all of the final event results from Hitch’s “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament in our official coverage hub here.
