It has been seven years since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 redefined the concept of the First-Person shooter and now fans are asking Activsion to remaster the classic for the Next-Gen consoles.
The petition was created on Change.org by Ramez Zahra with the aim of having one of the most iconic shooter remasted for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Appealing to both Activsion and Infinity Ward, the petition states,
“I speak for every one when I say that Modern Warfare 2 was one of Activision’s best game. Just a fun & enjoyable game that really gives you that nostalgic feeling. The guns, maps, kill streaks were just incredible. At the moment mw2 for the ps3 & xbox is just overrun by hackers. If they remaster the game, & sort a couple things out (e.g noob tubing)it would make a lot of people happy.”
Zahra started the petition on March 5, 2015 and it has already gathered 103,749 supporters while getting the attention of the gaming media.
However fans seem to be divided over the concept of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 being remastered. Many fans seem to support the idea while others are opposed to the concept of Seventh-Generation titles being remastered. Others prefer either the first Modern Warfare or Black Ops.
So far Activsion has not responded to the petition but that may change once +150,000 supporters have voiced their support for the project.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the sixth game in the series and was released on November 10, 2009 for all major consoles along with the Mac OS in 2014.
