Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 campaign remaster rating has just appeared on Pan European Game Information. The listing on the website shows an 18+ rating and it confirms earlier leaks which claimed that remaster won't include multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered edition rumours started to surface in 2018 and were fueled even further by Activision's comments after the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster, in which they stated that more remasters were on the way.

The first solid details appeared after CharlieIntel claimed that the Modern Warfare 2 remaster won't include a Multiplayer mode, only campaign. Well, it looks like the leaks were correct as the new rating on PEGI (Pan European Game Information) lists Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.

The listing can be found on the official PEGI website and it reveals an 18+ rating along with Activision Blizzard UK Ltd as publisher. The release date is set for 28 February 2019 which is, of course, just a placeholder date and possibly the date when PEGI created the listing for Modern Warfare 2 Remaster.

At the moment, PlayStation 4 is listed as the only platform but you can safely expect it to launch on all platforms, just like the Modern Warfare remaster. The listing also includes a small description of the game, which states that players will take a role of "a Special Operations team attempting to thwart the plans of a Russian invasion".

Piecing the clues together, the remaster looks pretty legit and since 2019 marks Modern Warfare 2's ten-year anniversary, it makes perfect sense that Activision are looking to celebrate that with a brand new, overhauled version.

One thing that will be interesting to see once Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remaster releases is the "No Russian" mission which caused some controversy back in 2009. In the mission, players control an undercover CIA agent who takes part in a terrorist attack on Moscow airport. This level was subject of censorship in international versions of the game and was removed entirely from the Russian version.

However, the controversy didn't stop Modern Warfare 2 becoming one of the series' best, and it's still remembered to this day for its unforgettable single-player campaign.
