13 essential Modern Warfare tips to know before you play

This news follows on from perhaps the least surprising "surprise launch" ever, as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is (almost certainly) landing on PC, PS4, and Xbox One later today, featuring a fully updated version of the campaign from Infinity Ward's 2009 shooter, with its multiplayer maps rumoured to eventually be integrated into last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot.

If you're into the idea of more Call of Duty remakes and remasters, then I have more good news. Call of Duty 2020 is rumoured to be a reboot of the Black Ops series from that franchise's original developers, Treyarch, which last worked on 2018's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

The title, already confirmed to be releasing later this year (presumably as a crossgen release for PS5 and Xbox Series X), could do for Black Ops what last year's modernised reimagining did for Modern Warfare, though we'll have to wait a while before we officially learn the details. We'll be sure to keep you posted as soon as we hear more.
