I remember when Infinite Warfare first was announced – people were incredibly pissed off that it was yet another futuristic game, but what they were even more pissed off about was the fact that their beloved Modern Warfare Remastered and the ONLY way they could get it was if they also bought Infinite Warfare.
I can tell you now, as a person that has been involved in many businesses and platforms, people don’t like to be told they HAVE to do something. People like options! I don’t blame them. For me, personally, I could have cared less about Modern Warfare, but I bought the Legacy Edition for Infinite Warfare because they made it sound like this was the ONLY way you could ever get Modern Warfare Remastered. if you didn’t get the upgraded edition then you would never have a chance at playing it.
Well. Here it is months later, and what does Activision do? They release Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone. SMH. Its great that they are allowing people to purchase it on its own, but this should have been openly talked about way back when, even if it wasn’t a solid concrete plan, it should have been said that “maybe” it will be available by itself in the future.
Activision is not only releasing Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone but its significantly cheaper than a regular game, however, its more expensive than just buying the Legacy Edition. Legacy was $79.99, most games are $62 after tax = $17.99 left over – they are charging $39.99 for Modern Warfare Remastered.
I don’t know. It just doesn’t make sense business-wise. I am sure that those of you that wanted Modern Warfare Remastered and waited for it these past few months will have your positives and negatives to say about this move!
Sony received it first (of course) on June 27th. It will be released on PC and Xbox One later on – probably a month afterward like usual.
So in the end, if you really wanted Modern Warfare Remastered but you didn’t want Infinite Warfare, this is the announcement for you.
This is the standalone version for Playstation 4:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – PlayStation 4
As you can clearly see in the review section, as I thought, people are really pissed off at the fact that it costs so much!
You can also still purchase the “pack” which includes Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered, which I honestly think is worth it. Even if you don’t like IW multiplayer, the zombies is exceptional and the campaign is pretty good too! Right now the legacy edition is on sale for Playstation 4 and Xbox One – 35% off.
