As of the time of this writing, 105,837 people have signed a petition to bring back Activision’s 2009 hit, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. No, this isn’t a joke.
“I speak for every one when I say that Modern Warfare 2 was one of Activision’s best game. Just a fun & enjoyable game that really gives you that nostalgic feeling. The guns, maps, kill streaks were just incredible,” says the petition which is currently being held on change.org. “At the moment mw2 for the ps3 & xbox is just overrun by hackers. If they remaster the game, & sort a couple things out (e.g noob tubing)it would make a lot of people happy.”
When this petition reaches 150,000 signatures, the organizers will send a letter to Activision with the hopes that the company will bring this game to current-gen systems.
I have to admit to being a bit speechless about this. While I understand the nostalgic and historical importance of HD Remasters, this Call of Duty, a franchise which has a new iteration every year. Why people want to play this specific game baffles me but hey, who am I to cast judgement?
