Activision and Infinity Ward have rolled back the years by unveiling the launch trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the overhauled version of the beloved, 2007 original.
Though there are rumors that both parties will eventually launch the HD re-release as a standalone title, Modern Warfare Remastered is currently tethered to the launch of Infinity Ward’s latest entry in the series, Infinite Warfare, and is considered by Activision to be one of the most valuable slices of add-on content in the company’s history. Few would argue against such a bullish claim, but the fact that, for now, MW Remastered remains exclusive to the Legacy Edition (or higher) of Infinite Warfare has left a bad taste in people’s mouths.
