Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting a full remaster for the PS4 and Xbox One. This remaster is also unfortunately tied to the purchase of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for now atleast. This means that if you want to get Modern Warfare Remastered, you will have to purchase the legacy edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
According to an update on the official FAQ for Modern Warfare Remastered, the game will apparently require the Infinite Warfare disc in order to be played on the console. This limitation likely only applies to the retail version of the game as it was possible to sell the base Infinite Warfare game while keeping Modern Warfare Remastered.
There is no such choice available to those who pre-order the game digitally hence they can delete Infinite Warfare from their console and keep Modern Warfare Remastered.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will launch with just 10 MP maps and the multiplayer won’t go live till November 4th. There is early access available for the base game for those who own the Legacy Edition digitally on either the PS4 or Xbox One.
Raven Software is working on this remastered release and they have confirmed on Twitter that there will be an option to disable the in-game HUD for the medals icon.
