MW2 Multiplayer Remastered And Call Of Duty 2021 Rumors Heat Up (For Some Reason)
Every so often in the game industry scene, a news story gets taken out of context or exaggerated. The most recent example of this happening is with VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb and some comments regarding Call of Duty 2021.
In a recent video on upcoming video game events, Grubb was asked about Call of Duty 2021 and rumors that development on the project was not going well. Here are Grubb’s exact comments:
Essentially, Grubb just repeated rumors about Call of Duty 2021’s troubled multiplayer development and brought up another rumor about MW2 Multiplayer Remastered. That’s basically it.
So, there are no new developments on these rumors. But, let’s take a look at the latest MW2 Multiplayer Remastered report and separately, Call of Duty 2021’s rumored development issues.

What’s The Deal With Call Of Duty 2021?

For example, here’s another tweet from Tom Henderson. This time, on Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard:

In late April, several new rumors emerged stating that Call of Duty 2021’s development was so dire that it was either delayed or canceled and MW2 Multiplayer Remastered could replace it as this year’s annual Call of Duty release.
This specific rumor has already been debunked. During a recent earnings call with investors, Activision confirmed that Call of Duty 2021 will be developed by Sledgehammer Games and the game is currently on track for a Fall 2021 release.
Furthermore, the publisher said the game will have a campaign, multiplayer, and cooperative modes.
