A surge in leaks have all but confirmed that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is being remastered and is due to launch this year.
The absence of multiplayer would explain the game's apparent pricing on online retailers.
Reports of a remaster for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 started surfacing last week, and the latest states only the single-player campaign will be included. After all, many would argue that the original Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer was what kept players engaged with the title in the first place and brought many more folks into the fold, which ultimately helped reinvigorate interest in the first-person shooter genre at that point in time.
This could be seen as a controversial move among players as Call of Duty's multiplayer is arguably the series' most popular aspect and what keeps players coming back for more.

On Monday, the militants pounced on Qadam from the neighboring Hajr al-Aswad and Yarmouk neighborhoods, which they control . The White Helmets, who work to extract people after air strikes, said on Tuesday its teams in Arbin had come under fire.
However, Charlie Intel, experts in all things Call of Duty, have done some digging and run a story in the last hour suggesting that they have bee sent materials from a source with links to Raven Software. Apparently, rumors indicate that Beenox, the team that aided Raven Software in remastering Modern Warfare's campaign, will take up much of the work remastering Modern Warfare 2.
In addition, the materials sent to CI stated that Raven Software is actually not developing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered at all.
As good as the single player was, however, Modern Warfare 2 was more than just its campaign. Whether this includes the co-op Spec Ops mode too, is unknown. The standalone release still cost a hefty $39.99 price tag, making the drop to $25 a lot more reasonable despite the supposed lack of multiplayer mode. Hopefully, official word will come down sooner rather than later.
