    The rumor spawned after a statement made by Director of Raven, David Pellas, during the Call of Duty XP fan event earlier this month. While announcing the availability of all 16 original multiplayer maps, and not only 10 as originally stated, he might have slipped up and released some information he wasn't supposed to. Or he may just have worded himself poorly.

    His exact words were: "What we announced before today was that we were going to offer 10 maps on launch, and that’s still true. The announcement today is that the six remaining maps we are actually going to be delivering to anyone who purchases Modern Warfare Remastered, anyone who owns it or a version of Infinite Warfare that comes with it, they’re going to get all 16 of the maps for no additional cost."

    So the question is, what does that mean? He does outline the difference between owning the game as with Infinite Warfare and just owning the remaster alone. It can easily be assumed that he refers to the fact that will we find the remaster available as a standalone title at some point, free to buy without having to help boost sales of Infinite Warfare. It's not like it is unheard of for Activision to promote exclusive preorder bonuses, only to release the content separately at a later date. So there's no wonder that this statement helps support the suspicion many have, that the game will eventually be available alone. However, if this holds true, we should not expect it to happen any time soon. At best in a few months after release maybe?

    Many fans of Modern Warfare has voiced their dissatisfaction towards the fact that their much wanted remaster is locked in with the purchase of the new Call of Duty title. They are not interested in space warfare, and would prefer to get their hands on the remaster without having to buy a product they have no plans to use. As much as this rumor can give these players some hope, the support page on Activision's official site seems to crush their both their hopes and dreams:
    It remains to be seen if these answers will change or not, but personally I would expect to see a debunk from Activision in the very near future. But then again, you never know, do you?


    Do you think there is anything to these speculations? And what would you do if you found out that you didn't have to buy Infinite Warfare to get the remaster anyway? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

    I understand those who believe that COD is a company like all others trying to make money.
    But in my opinion, they would simply make much more if they gave the players what they wanted.
    Throwing in the FPS debate, the only reason Battlefield is going to win this year is due to delivering what players want, even though it's a blatant re-skin of Battlefront.
    I'm just trying my hardest to be on COD's side in recent years, you feel?

    I'm sure if sales flop with Infinite Warfare even the one including COD 4 remaster. I'm sure they will sell it as a stand alone for a desperate attempt to get more money to make up for the poor sales and a last attempt to get money for the work.

    As much as I hate how money grabbing Activision are, they are a company. Their number one goal is money. Therefore it is only fair that they do what they can to make sure they make as much of it as possible. The fact so many people want the remastered call of duty (including me) and making people have to buy their brand new game is clever and is simply a tactic to make as much money as they can. Of course they'll release the remaster at a later date, maybe six months after initial release, maybe longer it's something they have done many times in the past as stated in the article, I don't see what the hate is about. I have been a Call of Duty fan for around nine years now (all started on COD4 for me, like many) and no one would like it to go back to it's roots as much as me, but that doesn't me I'm not going to play Infinite Warfare. Heck, I'm spending £70, I'm atleast going to give it a fair chance. Plus I'm one to play the campaigns too. They've listened to the community about wanting a remastered COD4, they've done it for us, it's fair to let them make money they deserve and from a business point of view they've done it a brilliant way.

    Not true. There not gonna release it standalone, its all gonna be on one disc and you'll have to install infinite warfare to access the content (source works in marketing for activision australia).

    Why make it standalone and throw away the opportunity for profit?
