The Call of Duty franchise had hit a rut after the release of Call of Duty 3, and with sales dropping they needed to do something different, and fast. So, they went modern, literally. Modern Warfare was a revelation, and since then, nearly every Call of Duty game has followed the Modern Warfare style.
Now, multiple leaks and rumors are stating that Modern Warfare could get a remaster. The latest leak comes from Reddit, which also shows “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” coming out this year.
Activision has not confirmed this as true as of yet. But if leaks keep coming out, it may just be a matter of time.
