Update: According to the German PlayStation Store, which has gone ahead and listed the game a little early, complete with a trailer and date, states that the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered campaign will release tomorrow, March 31st, 2020. We’ll see…
I don’t really like reporting on rumours, but when anyone says that they are “99.9999 %” sure about anything, I’ll take them up on it just on the chance that they’re wrong and I get to hold it over them. I’m a mean man.
The rumour is that Activision will release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered today on PS4 and Xbox One, without any prior hype. It’s a questionable claim, but not one totally without merit.
Modern Warfare 2 Remastered was recently rated by the South Korean ratings board, and it was rated this time last year by the PEGI ratings authority, and there have been rumours flying around the internet since last year and the year before that Activision would release Modern Warfare 2 Remastered on PS4 and Xbox One, supposedly after the great success and critical reception to the original Modern Warfare remaster from a few years back.

According to Twitter user Okami, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will release today. So confident in their claim, when asked by a curious Twitter person if the game would release on March 30th, Okami replied saying they are “99.9999%” sure.
According to this Okami person, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will only be the single-player campaign and not the multiplayer. Instead, the multiplayer maps from Modern Warfare 2 will be released onto 2019’s Modern Warfare. It’s a shame, but so long as Activision doesn’t take the piss by pricing the single-player remaster too high, most fans will probably be happy, myself included.
The day is yet young, and as I write this article at 10:30 AM GMT, there’s no sign of Modern Warfare 2 Remastered on the PlayStation Store or on the Xbox Store. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled, and if it’s not on my hard drive by 23:59 PM GMT, this Okami person will be sat with egg on their face and will likely never be trusted again.
