What’s that up there? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the PEGI ratings board once again all but confirming an unannounced game is about to be revealed!
Oh PEGI, you just couldn’t help yourselves, could you? Yes, the Pan European Gaming Ratings Board put their virtual foot in their virtual mouths by posting an 18 certificate age rating for Modern Warfare 2 Remastered.
Now before we all go getting too excited, the rating that was posted for the game only covered the campaign being remastered, so that’s a kick in the teeth right there for anybody hoping to 1v1 snipers only their mates on Rust in glorious, high definition, GamesRadar reports .
Win some, lose some.
A betting man would say that Activision and Infinity Ward have that portion of the game tucked away up their sleeves for a rainy day but, that’s speculation on speculation right there.
Another thing you’ll want to take notice of, is that this particular rating only covers the PS4 version of the game. Timed exclusive? Platform exclusive? Who’s to say.
This hot leak correlates nicely with a leak way back in 2018 on an Italian ratings board that said much
the same thing – that the campaign for Modern Warfare 2 Remastered would be coming at some point in the near(ish) future at a price point of $20.
While we don’t know at this point whether appearing on various ratings boards means the game will actually show up on store shelves, and in what form – standalone or as a tie-on for COD 2019 – remains to be seen, but often enough when these games show up, they do eventually, well, show up.
Speaking of COD 2019, there’s a lot of chatter about it being a Modern Warfare sequel, so remastering the original campaign would certainly ring true.
Only time will tell of course, but one’s thing’s for sure. I’m ready to get revenge for my boy Ghost.
