Activision have hinted that a remastered Call of Duty could be in the pipeline along with their 2020 release, but what classic remake can we expect?

With Treyarch rumored to be at the helm of Call of Duty’s next release, plenty are looking forward to seeing what David Vonderhaar and co. can produce.

Reports suggest that Treyarch are currently working with Sledgehammer Games to produce a Black Ops prequel, based around the events of the Cold War.

During Activision’s fourth-quarter conference call, Activision confirmed that a Call of Duty game was indeed in development for a 2020 release.

While this might appear obvious – considering that a new title has been released every year since 2005 – there were doubts after Sledgehammer were reportedly cut mid-way through their development cycle.

Moreover, Activision hinted towards the inclusion of a remastered Call of Duty title during their earnings call. But which classic game will Treyarch be looking to push with their game?

Treyarch taking Black Ops to next-gen?

Providing that the reports of Treyarch taking the reigns hold substance, it would be logical for a remastered title to pay homage to their flagship series. And what better way to bring their iconic game to next-generation consoles?

With both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X set to launch during the 2020 holiday season, the next Call of Duty title will need to bridge the gap between both consoles.

On paper, this provides Treyarch with the perfect opportunity to revive the series, by giving fans a reboot of where it all began.

Where’s Modern Warfare 2 remastered?

While fans everywhere are craving a new-generation Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward’s opportunity to push out a remake is dwindling away. There was previously lots of rumors, seemingly confirming a remaster of the classic 2009 title.

With Modern Warfare’s series reboot currently dipping its toes into Infinity Ward’s previous releases’ storyline, there is a possibility that the developer might release the Modern Warfare 2 campaign remake as a bolt-on to the single-player embedded into their current title.

Could a MW2 remake be on the way?

Of course, while a remaster could be definitely on the cards, there has been no official announcement on the developer from Activision’s corner at the time of writing. Indeed, there is a possibility that a remastered version of Crash Bandicoot or Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater could be coming to next-gen.

Should Treyarch be steering the ship, it certainly makes sense for a Black Ops remake to make its way onto the next-generation of consoles.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
