Minutes after the reveal of the new Call of Duty (which is starting to look more like Destiny) fans have begun asking if Modern Warfare Remastered will be sold separately. The short answer is no.
When checking the Modern Warfare FAQ, a question reveals if players can obtain the game through other means as opposed to buying the Infinity Warfare’s Legacy Edition.
No, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game digital download that will be included in the Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Internet connection required.
Welp, that sucks. From a business point of view this does make sense. Get extra dollars for a game by including a highly demanded remastered version. I guess the only way now is fork over $80. Lame and typical coming from Activision.
You can also bet this will recur with the inevitable Modern Warfare 2 remaster in next year’s COD game.
