After ample speculation, and significant demand from fans, it appears as if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered may finally be getting a standalone release in the very near future. As gamers may recall, the remastered title is currently only available through Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Legacy Edition – which is a decision that left many players rather miffed with franchise publisher Activision. However, it now appears that the title is on its way to making its long-awaited solo debut.
Gaming rental service GameFly has suggested as much through a recent listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. The premise of playing the game sans Infinite Warfare is enticing in and of itself, but the posting also appears to indicate a potential PlayStation 4-first release this July. This would mean that the game will be made available on Sony's home console a full 30 days before making the jump to other platforms.
As of this writing, Modern Warfare Remastered is currently only accessible via the Infinite Warfare disc, which is rather inconvenient for anyone hoping to keep the current add-on only title installed. Truthfully, having the game release as a standalone seemed like an inevitable outcome, and it's sure to delight fans now that there's an indication that it may be happening in the very near future. Of course, since Activision has yet to confirm such a move, consumers shouldn't hold their breath just yet.
News will likely be popping up sooner rather than later, provided that the GameFly listing is accurate. With E3 2017 and Sony's corresponding press conference quickly approaching, the venue wouldn't be a horrible place to confirm the game's seemingly timed exclusive release.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is currently available to Infinite Warfare Deluxe Edition owners on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
