We received some news a while back that the COD: Modern Warfare remaster will not be shipping separately from the original Infinite Warfare game. This means that the only way consumers will have access to the MW remaster is by purchasing Infinite Warfare. So far, buying IW will guarantee access to the MW remaster and preordering is not necessary.
Our take: we feel this is a huge giveaway to fans. Purchasers of Infinite Warfare will not only get a new Call of Duty game, but with the same price will also get a remaster of a very good title. It makes me wonder, though, why Activision is setting it up like this. Normally remasters of great video games retail for around $50 or even the full $60 USD price. Sure, Modern Warfare is not exactly a stellar game that was requested to be remastered, but it still is a full game with updated textures and possibly new features.
