Yeah, we're back on that timed exclusive BS again.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered

There was a tasty rumor that kicked up recently suggesting that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered would be released today. It was partially true. On Tuesday, March 31st, a remastered release of Modern Warfare 2's campaign was released, but only on the PlayStation 4.

It's a timed exclusive to the PlayStation 4 until April 30th. If you still want to purchase Modern Warfare 2 Remastered on either the Xbox One or PC, you can choose to do so. If you do end up buying it now ahead of the April 30 release on these platforms, you will be given access to the "Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle" in both Modern Warfare and Warzone.

No matter which platform you choose to buy it on, Modern Warfare 2 is just $20. That does seem like a reasonable price seeing as how the multiplayer and Spec Ops modes aren't included. However, it appears as though the multiplayer for Modern Warfare will be expanded with some classic map experiences. This seems to indicate that the multiplayer in Modern Warfare Remastered will eventually get some Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer maps and perhaps even Modern Warfare 3 maps.

This remaster of the campaign supports some visual upgrades, as you would expect. This includes support for up to 4K resolutions and HDR support on consoles. There is also going to be an uncapped framerate and ultrawide resolution support on the PC when it eventually releases there.

I'd just like to add that this timed exclusive crap needs to stop. I don't care if it's a timed exclusive between consoles and PC, between consoles, or even just on the PC platform itself (looking at you Epic Games Store). I have never liked it and I will continue to never like it. If there is some silver lining here, it seems like this might be a one-off deal as it was made quite some time ago according to CharlieINTEL.
