E3 2015: Activision Talks Difficulty Of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy Remaster Happening

by Damian Seeto


Activision has responded somewhat on many fans wanting a remastered collection of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy for PS4 and Xbox One.

Game Informer interviewed Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg, at E3 2015. They asked him if we could see a remaster for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy or even older games in the franchise.

Hirshberg said that remasters can be great if they are “done well“. He said lot of gamers have a connection to the games “they love from the last cycle“. He also mentioned a lot of gamers want to see the older games being “done right” on the newer cycle of consoles.

However, he said there is always an “opportunity cost“, as they don’t want to take away members from the team not working on their newer Call of Duty games. He said it’s “a matter of finding great people to do that work“.

Personally, Hirshberg said he would love to revisit Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and the first Black Ops game. However, he said there are “no announcements” but they are thinking of it.

Obviously, there is a big demand for a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy remaster. Activision could make money doing it. However, it sounds like Activision wants to focus on their newer games instead as they need to find a proper studio to make the remasters work great.
