Raven Software Talks Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

I have fond memories of Infinity Ward’s breakout hit Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, so earlier this month I stopped by Raven Software in Madison, Wisconsin to check out how progress was coming with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered on PS4.

Check out highlights from my conversation with Raven above. Again and again I was reminded of the studio’s extensive experience in the FPS genre, including Soldier of Fortune and Quake IV, among others. Despite the radically improved visuals, lighting, and animations, Raven went to extreme lengths to retain the feel, pacing, and timing of the 2007 classic. I’m expecting this one to be fully faithful to the original game.

Here are a few key takeaways from my visit to Raven Software:

  • Raven’s number-one priority: keeping the gameplay fully authentic to the original game
  • PS4 Pro support is a definite go, with support for richer textures and dynamic 4K graphics on top of the series’ signature fluid framerate
  • Modern Warfare Remastered’s multiplayer mode will ship with 10 multiplayer maps, followed by another six in December. Interestingly, the game will include Kill Confirmed, which was not offered in the original release

Watch our full discussion above! Modern Warfare Remastered is available with the Legacy and Digital Deluxe versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, out on PS4 November 4. If you want to jump into the Campaign early, pre-purchase one of those editions from PlayStation Store.

    I enjoyed the campaign that I finished already. The game as a remaster is Phenomenal and this is how a remaster should be done.

    Can’t wait for the release!

  • Thanks for the update! I’m not sure if you can confirm this or not, but these maps coming out after launch, they will be free right? I would assume they are. Infinite warfare is the first cod I’m buying since the first black ops, although I have put major time into bo3 since my brother has it, I am excited the most to play this remaster. I have some find memories with the original and I still hop on it sometimes on the computer and ps3, but it’s hard to find a good server nowadays.

    • Yes, they confirmed a while back that the remaining 6 maps will be free.

  • Is COD MW Remastered (multiplayer) going to be released as a standalone at some point or only packaged with Infinite Warfare? If it will, I will get it. If not, I’ll stick with ‘The Division’, ‘Battlefield 1’, ‘Destiny’ and ‘Dead Island Definitive collection’ for now.

    I despise what COD has become as of late, but I would buy this as a standalone game for sure. Fun times.

  • The only update you should be giving is when will this be separated from Infinite Warfare.

  • Love this game so much! I can’t wait for the multiplayer to go live, between games this and infinite warfare I think I’m gonna be set for the holidays. Thanks to Sony (ps blog especially) for getting these interviews with developers, they really are interesting and refreshing when compared to the negative spin that most sites are slinging.

    Already got platinum trophy in mwr
    Can’t wait for the multiplayer!

  • This will be sold as a stand alone in the spring right? Infinite warfare sucks but I’m sure this will be fun.

  • JeRzYzFyNeSt

    waiting for the stand alone game.. if it doesnt come i wont buy its okay…

    FPS this generation has not been good..

    we need a Modern day FPS not futuristic or in the past…

    or give me a damn SOCOM Sony wtf

  • I’ll never buy a Infinity ward CoD, apart from CoD4 only one from them that I like. When the standalone releases I’ll get it. But no way I’m paying over 100 for a remaster and even more, supporting CoDIW

  • TeamGreen615

    Put COD4 MW Remastered on a disc and I will gladly buy it. Don’t care for Infinite Halofare so I guess I’ll just wait.

  • Nico_Pacita

    im cancelling my Pre order, because its chinese and no language options, i have’nt played my MW early access cant change it to english

  • I’ve bought the last every call of duty since bop2, and only ever really played bops2. not going to buy another call of duty I won’t play just to get access to the call of duty I want to play. I’m too old for what call of duty has become. it’s too fast paced and all this jumpy flying about with a crappy gamepad, it’s too much for my old brain to cope with.

    • ratigatorbait

      Haha. I feel the same way, but its not just us getting older. The stupid guns and jumping has ruined the franchise. At least there’s still Battlefield 1.

  • binarydivision

    Raven is still around? I thought they closed. Their game Singularity was very underrated in my opinion. They do some quality work.

  • Sick of the jet pack BS, would only buy a standalone remastered.

  • ButtersThaatsMe

    Like many others, waiting for a standalone version.

  • Bunch of BS! Get the game download3d, and is in Chinese with no option to change it. Apply for refund and refused because I started the game while trying to change the language.

  • LoosekidJamie

    I’m a hardcore gamer. Solely. I want to play the remaster, my clan and other friends want to play the remaster. But I can’t do it. I can’t stand the respawn delay. I’ve grown accustomed to not having to wait ten seconds between every death. Can you please remove this!? Or shorten it to a few seconds tops. Otherwise I can’t support this game and it’s a fail in my eyes. I’m not alone in this. Countless people I have spoken to agree.

  • COD: Remastered for ps vita would be cool

  • I love it more then iw not knocking iw but this is the game that brings back some good ole times but i also see a direction that could be awsome id love to see survival mode return but in a mw style i noticed it on cod 2 an 3 were waves of soldiers come out an you get a creat with weapon upgrades an a creat with kill streaks now i think that would be so fun i also think gun game sticks an stones would be great an one in the chamber this would add more fun to mw but i think Activision would just add a lil to mw an focus on iw when really they could make a lil effort for mw its a classic that actually got people into the hole war of playing mutiplayer online one of my favorites imagine what would happen if waw got a remaster with treyarchs next cod
