Two prominent Call of Duty leakers, Okami and TheGamingRevolution have hinted a potential release date of the remastered version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and if their claims are to be trusted, MW 2 Remastered might be just around the corner.
Both Okami and TheGamingRevolution have gained renown as two trusted Call of Duty leakers, having provided a plethora of predictions about the Activision's FPS title, which later proved to be true, which includes the release date of Call of Duty's battle royale title - Warzone.
Their most recent leaks, however, are directed towards the release of Modern Warfare 2's campaign-only title, with the duo unveiling a plethora of information about the highly anticipated remastered version of the most popular CoD title.
The rumours of Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release started on February 29, when Okami posted a Tweet, claiming that "Modern Warfare Remastered is releasing this year, with multiplayer," followed by TheGamingRevolution's Tweet, where he claimed plethora of game titles are in the works, one of which being MWR2.
"Some Activision games in the works: Tony Hawk Proskater Remastered, Call of Duty 2020 (code-named PROJECT: ZEUS), MW2 Remastered, a F2P COD game from SHGames (2021 ETA), a PvP Crash game, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex Remastered," said TheGamingRevolution.
Following the two exciting leaks, many Call of Duty fans were eagerly awaiting the release date and while many had hoped CoD MWR2 will come out early in March, those hopes were unfortunately not met. Following Call of Duty March 25 update, Okami revealed that Infinity Ward moved away from working on MWR2 and will instead focus on implementing some classic fan-favourite maps to Modern Warfare.
When is Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release date?
While explaining that Infinity Ward moved their focus to introducing classic maps to Modern Warfare, Okami left a cryptic message on his Twitter page that red “March 30th”, which left many CoD fans scratching their head, trying to figure out what that date means. Could it be the date when MWR2 releases, or will we be introduced to something completely new and unheard-of was anyone's guess.
That being said, TheGamingRevolution added some more context to the cryptic message on his Twitter account this Saturday, March 28, when he addressed Okami's message, stating that March 30 will mark the date when MW2R campaign-only title will be released.
"I just spoke to Okami, and according to him, Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is releasing next Monday on the 30th of March!," he said.
Although those are nothing more than claims, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered was all but confirmed long ago, since a bundle of MWR2 artwork has already been leaked, strongly indicating the game will be released in not so distant future.
Some leaks, which surfaced earlier this month also suggested a new bundle with Modern Warfare-themed cosmetics will come to CoD: Modern Warfare, which includes weapons, outfit and other cosmetic items linked with the iconic MW Operator Ghost.
Leaked cosmetic items whiwh will become available in the (rumoured) Oil Rig bundle:
- UDT Ghost (Legendary Operator skin)
- Task Force (Legendary M4A1)
- One for One (Legendary 1911)
- Free Dive (Rare Charm)
- Belly Flop (Epic Ghost Finishing Move)
- Stay Frosty (Epic Ghost Operator Quip)
- No Easy Days (Epic Animated Calling Card)
- Ghost (Rare Emblem)
While Okami and TheGamingRevolution both have an impressive history of predicting new releases with high accuracy, it's worth noting that nothing is set in stone until Activision officially confirms the release of MWR2.
