Could 2021 be the first year since 2004 that Call of Duty fans won’t receive a new title? Or could Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered be about to save the day and truly take the franchise back to its roots?
According to leakers and industry insiders, the latter is looking extremely likely. Reports suggest that Sledgehammer’s WWII Vanguard title is “a disaster”.

Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered
In March of 2020, fans were surprised when Activision suddenly dropped the remastered campaign from the classic 2009 title, Modern Warfare 2.
Call of Duty players were once again able to relive the epic single-player campaign from one of the most loved Call of Duty titles of all time. Purchasing the remastered campaign also gave players access to an exclusive ‘Classic Ghost Bundle’ to use in both Modern Warfare and Warzone.
Although Call of Duty players around the world rejoiced at getting to experience Modern Warfare 2 on newer gen systems, many were left wondering why Multiplayer also wasn’t included in the remaster?
Activision never commented on the lack of Multiplayer in the remaster, but many believe it’s likely due to not wanting to separate the online community even further.
In 2021, many players are still split between 2019’s Modern Warfare, Warzone, and now 2020’s Black Ops Cold War. Adding yet another online component into the mix would only separate the community even further.
But with reports of 2021’s Call of Duty title being cancelled or delayed, could now be the time for Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer to receive the remaster treatment?
Could Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered Be Replacing Vanguard?
According to @WarzoneNewz, a reliable source for all Call of Duty leaks and news, Activision recently DCMA’d a certain individual for discussing the possibility of WWII Vanguard being delayed and Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered releasing in its place.
Now, Activision tends to remove all videos and images of possible leaks surrounding their titles, so the simple fact that they’ve gone through the effort to remove this leak is interesting.
It would also line up perfectly with insider information that WWII Vanguard is “a disaster”. This information comes from Tom Henderson, a popular leaker and industry insider when it comes to all things Call of Duty and Battlefield.
However, don’t get your hopes up for Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered being the main Call of Duty title for 2021, even though Henderson claims Vanguard is a disaster, he still believes it will release as planned.
According to the insider, Activision is prepared for the latest installment to not perform well. The massive publisher reportedly has a “recovery map” already in place.
All of this information comes from leakers and industry insiders, so take it with a pinch of salt. Nothing is official until it comes from Activision or a Call of Duty developer.
Let us know if you’d rather see Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered launch in the place of WWII Vanguard this year.
Cold War & Warzone Season 3
There might be a lot of drama surrounding 2021’s Call of Duty title, but fans may be currently too tied up in the latest season of Cold War and Warzone to notice.
The new Season kicked off on April 22 with a whole plethora of content.
Warzone players were treated to the Destruction of Verdansk Event which saw the map become overrun with Zombies, ultimately ending in its demise. However, the event did finish with players being transported back to 1984 and dropping into a brand new Verdansk for the first time.
Warzone and Cold War are available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
