The official Call of Duty Twitter account seems to have confirmed that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is getting a remastered edition later this year.
Call of Duty fans have been on the edge of their seats ever since Target accidentally leaked a potential remastering of Call of Duty 4, which is supposedly scheduled to come out sometime later this year. The leak of the potential remaster was met with a positive reaction from fans, some of whom have grown tired of the future settings and rumors the next title may take place in space.
A fan who tweeted at the official Call of Duty Twitter account stated that if he ever hears the words ‘Call of Duty 4 PS4 remaster’ he would literally defecate in his pants due to excitement. Typically, official Twitter accounts for games don’t reply to hearsay unless they intentionally want to hype up something, and the reply that the Call of Duty account sent out seems to have intentionally raised a ruckus.
Here’s the tweet itself, which makes great use of emojis to coyly imply that the tweeting fan may be soiling his pants in the near future:
The fact that the original Tweet was sent out December 5th, 2014, means that someone manning the Call of Duty account kept that Tweet ready for years, which is a great indicator that the next coming weeks will be great for laundry detergent sales – sorry, pants of the world. It also likely means that this remaster was on the table for some time.
It’s clearly an exciting time to be a Call of Duty fan, especially with upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare information coming out soon (like its name, which was just leaked a day ago), which is reportedly scheduled to undergo its official unveiling sometime next week. Now that Activision is openly teasing a remaster of one of the fan-favorite iterations of the franchise, the rumors that started a month ago about the studio remastering older titles of the franchise seem to have gained some significant traction.
According to leaked retailer documents, an unavoidable necessity but a major source for leaks like this, the new game(s) will launch on November 4th – a typical window for Call of Duty in the past. If the game truly does come bundled with Modern Warfare Remastered, it means gamers can indulge their nostalgia just in time for the holiday season, which is a smart move on Activision’s part.
What do you think about the Call of Duty Twitter account’s reply, Ranters? Are people reading too far into this, or is the studio teasing an upcoming remaster of Modern Warfare?
