It seemed like an inevitability after the remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, so go ahead and get your loadouts ready. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered for PS4 has been spotted in a new PEGI rating.
The listing for the game disappeared, but Eurogamer reported the find via a story in Gematsu. The original report theorized that this could mean that the game will be included with this year's release of a new Call of Duty game. Considering it was only listed for PS4, this could certainly mean it will be presented as a pre-order bonus for PS4 players and potentially become available on other platforms at a later date.
Another concerning element of this is the fact that, specifically, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was the discovered rating. It's not unreasonable to think that any return to Modern Warfare 2 means there are intentions to bring the multiplayer back to life as well, but will the two elements of the game be separate purchases?
Most times, the online portion of a game is considered "unrated" due to the inability to predict the actions of anonymous players. Therefore, this could just be the normal process for a full remaster of the Call of Duty game that includes the campaign and Modern Warfare 2's legendary multiplayer experience. With how the first Modern Warfare remaster was monetized, though, it makes sense to be concerned.
Whatever happens here, fans will certainly be excited to return to one of the best shooters in gaming history. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's campaign follows Task Force 141, led by Captain Soap MacTavish. It's an engaging and cinematic experience from start to finish, noted for also featuring one of the most controversial moments in a game: "No Russian." The violent level features an airport shooting where terrorist kill a ton of civilians. Players are actually allowed to skip the level or not shoot at the civilians to progress through.
