Last year, Activision released the "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered," but it only features the game's single-player mode. In a blog post, the video game publisher later revealed that they decided not to include the game's multiplayer. Activision said that "rather than release a separate, multiplayer experience as a standalone pack, Activision and Infinity Ward are looking to bring more classic map experiences to new life within the Modern Warfare universe as it continues to grow and build over time.“

Currently, the "Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered" project has no specific release date yet. If the game meets its earlier release window, fans will hear more news and update about the upcoming mod anytime soon.
