Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, one of the most popular games in the Call of Duty franchise, may finally be getting a standalone release for its remastered version.
Currently, the only way to get the popular remastered version of the game is to purchase premium versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, such as the Legacy Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition. However, product pages on GameFly surfaced that hinted at the possibility of Activision releasing Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The GameFly pages have since been removed.
The rumored release dates are also of note, as the PlayStation 4 version is believed to be set for June 30, 2017, while rumors circulating around the Xbox One version hinting at July 30, 2017. The most widely accepted theory for the different release dates is that the different dates are a result of Activision’s exclusivity deal with Sony. As it stands, DLC for the Call of Duty franchise currently releases on PlayStation 4 first, with Xbox One users granted access at a later date. The games themselves, however, have continued releasing at the same time. For Modern Warfare Remastered to have separate release dates between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would be a mild change of form.
Activision has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors regarding standalone availability for Modern Warfare Remastered. The company never stated whether or not it would eventually make the game available on its own. If it did, versions for PC are presumed to also be made available.
Speculation for the remastered game’s price tends to range between $20 and $40, arguing that paying full-price for what amounts to a rerelease would be absurd. Fortunately, remastered versions of other popular games, such as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, have set a trend for the aforementioned price range.
