Call of Duty leaker TheGamingRevolution has provided another update on the rumored multiplayer remaster of Modern Warfare 2, which would go some way to explain Activision’s tight-lipped approach.
Rumors of Modern Warfare 2 Remastered have swirled since about 2018, with the game’s iconic campaign finally being re-released to players on March 31. It has since become clear that the remastered story was ready for over a year, but Activision were waiting for the right time to drop it.
Since then, players have been clamoring for a remaster of MW2’s multiplayer, considered by many to be one of Call of Duty’s best ever.
However, despite the obvious demand from the community, Activision have previously explained why they don’t want to release a remaster of MW2’s multiplayer. Their main reason was the inevitable split of the player base.
CoD leaker gives MW2 update
Despite the comments Activision made, TheGamingRevolution, a prominent Call of Duty leaker (who correctly leaked both Gunfight and Warzone in Modern Warfare), has maintained that a MW2 multiplayer remaster is in the works. In an April 15 YouTube video, he expanded on his past statements.
“I have heard some recent information,” he started. “That apparently a reason as to why it hasn’t released yet is because the game is apparently very different to the original Modern Warfare 2 and they’ve changed a lot of things, and they don’t think the community will like it.”

“So they don’t know if they’re ever going to release it,” he continued. “I have heard that they are still testing it out so I’m assuming they are still changing things. I feel like it is still going to be coming out at some point, I just really do not know when. It really wouldn’t surprise me if it’s not until a year from now.”

TGR then put a caveat message on the screen, saying that there is a possibility we will see it this year, it just depends on the development decisions made by Activision and the specific companies that were behind the remaster.
The video then moves away from the topic of MW2 Remastered and focuses on a leaked Classic Ghost Skin, potentially coming to 2019’s Modern Warfare and Warzone.
The news is not necessarily what fans will want to hear, but it will certainly foster excitement simply through the insistence that MW2 Remastered multiplayer is actually in development.
Despite TGR’s claims, they remain unconfirmed until Activision or a CoD development studio makes an official announcement. However, he does have a reputation as a fairly trustworthy leaker, having correctly predicted both Warzone and Gunfight in the past. Over to you, Activision.
