Activision, the publisher of the "Call of Duty" franchise, has confirmed the release of a remastered version of the popular 2007 video game, "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare," as the previous leaks had suggested.
Erik Monacelli, the director of communications at Infinity Ward, revealed during a talk about the remastered version at a video streaming event that the "Call of Duty" community has been the inspiration behind this version, as players had asked for a remastered version after the new generation consoles were out.
The development of the remastered version of the game will be headed by Raven Software with Infinity Ward overseeing the game and producing it.
Monacelli revealed that Raven is "amping up" the game while sticking to its core original edition. They are looking at the textures and working from the ground up to have the fidelity that players expect from the current generations.
He also revealed that the Raven is working on new sounds, and that the game will feature new techniques and visual effects, and a lot of new technology. The game's multiplayer will have 10 multiplayer maps, including "Crash," "Backlot" and "Crossfire."
"Modern Warfare Remastered will include the full, iconic story campaign, and the original multiplayer mode with 10 of the biggest fan-favourite maps that redefined Call of Duty forever, fully remastered for PS4," said a PlayStation blog post.
The remastered version will be "in stunning high-definition, featuring next generation textures, physically based rendering, high-dynamic range lighting and much more to bring a new generation experience to fans," Activision promised.
However, the game will not be sold separately but will come with the Legacy, Legacy Pro and Digital Deluxe editions of "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare."
