MW3 to Feature Remastered MW2 Maps – Leaked Insider Report
Activision’s upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 video game is rumored to feature the remastered maps of its predecessor Modern Warfare 2, as per a new leaked insider report. In the report, the source stated that Infinity Ward is looking to bring full integration of their 2010 title’s maps into Modern Warfare 3. The original maps were reportedly given a graphical overhaul to bring them up to modern standards.
Modern Warfare 2 maps like Afghan, Terminal, Scrapyard, and Rust, among others, were included in the original game as both small-scale maps due to the limited hardware of the time. Infinity Ward’s decision to remaster the Modern Warfare 2 maps for MW3 follows recent gaming trends of older titles receiving remakes.
This move also adds to the existing connection between the two games. Aside from the remastered maps, it’s speculated that Modern Warfare 3 will feature a storyline that ties in the two titles. This is currently only a rumor, however, and it remains to be seen whether these claims are true.
Regardless, the inclusion of Modern Warfare 2’s maps in Modern Warfare 3 would be a welcomed addition to the CoD franchise. Fans of the 2010 game are sure to appreciate a return to their favorite maps in a modernized version.
