The release date for the Modern Warfare 2 remastered campaign has been leaked by the German PlayStation store – with a trailer and a few screenshots to boot. 

Though many Call of Duty fans are still sinking their teeth into Modern Warfare and the Warzone battle royale mode, leaks and rumors have swirled around a few throwbacks – with the most notable being a remaster of Modern Warfare 2.

The 2009 title was a huge hit with fans, and remains a popular addition to the franchise to this day, but it hasn’t yet followed in the footsteps of Call of Duty 4 with a released remaster. Though, it appears as if fans are getting ever closer to finally having what they want. 

Fans have been waiting for an MW2 remaster for quite some time.

After leaks revealed the artwork and bonuses for the Modern Warfare 2 campaign remaster, the German PlayStation Store has dropped a listing for the game – including a release date, price, trailer, and screenshots. 

According to the listing, which was uncovered by CharlieIntel, the Modern Warfare 2 remastered campaign will release on Tuesday, March 31 at a price of €24.99. However, the pricing for the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, and other regions are not yet known. 

Though, if Activision does decide to do a straight conversion from  €24.99 to those regions, it should cost about £22, $27, and $45 AUS. Players can also get the leaked bundle for Modern Warfare’s multiplayer that includes the original Ghost operator. 

The Ghost bundle will be available in Modern Warfare for those who buy the MW2 remastered campaign.

As for the trailer and screenshots, the video isn’t exactly the classic trailer that was released all those years ago by Activision and Infinity Ward.

Instead, it shows some of the classic missions from the campaign, including storming the White House, being a part of the underwater demo team, and rescuing Captain Price from the Gulag.

Though the listing has been around for a few hours, the release date and price of the Modern Warfare 2 remaster has yet to be properly confirmed by Activision. 

Once it is, we’ll be sure to let you know on Dexerto.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
