Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is one of the most popular games of all time, and yet the recent remastered edition of the game has been held hostage as a bonus for folks who buy the deluxe version of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. That’s kind of a crummy move by Activision in general, but the poor reception for Infinite Warfare makes it even worse. To get perhaps the most beloved Call of Duty you’re forced to buy the least-liked version? Boooo! That’s just not right.
Well, it looks like Activision may finally be prepared to unshackle Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered from Infinite Warfare. A new listing on video game rental service GameFly seems to indicate the game will become available as early as June, if you’re playing on PS4.
A listing for the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered lists a July release date, indicating PS4 owners will be getting the standalone version a month early, because of course they are. PS4 owners getting Call of Duty DLC and other goodies a month early is a pretty firmly-held tradition now.
Activision has yet to confirm the standalone release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, but the move makes sense. The publisher is releasing new (rather overpriced) DLC for Modern Warfare Remastered, so they want as many people playing the game as possible. With the world buzzing about Call of Duty: WWII it’s time to ditch the albatross that is Infinite Warfare.
The standalone version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (likely) hits PS4 on June 20, and Xbox One and other platforms on July 20.
