I've been thinking about MWR (Modern Warfare Remastered) a lot the last day or two and I've already decided that I'm not going to spend $80 on IW just to play a 9 year old game, even though that 9 year old game is still the best CoD and one of the best from last gen.
I want the fans to really think about this: Why would they remaster a game of this caliber but only do half (10) of the multiplayer maps on it's 9 year anniversary? Why not wait a year, remaster ALL the MP maps (plus the campaign) and release it during it's 10 year anniversary for $60? I'm convinced that they are most likely going to release the other MWR maps over the course of the DLC season, which is a really scummy move but that's a different topic altogether.
My main question is: Do you think it's possible that sometime in 2017 they will sell MWR as a standalone purchase either in the summer for $20 (half the maps) or wait until the 10 year anniversary in November and release the game in it's entirety for $60? I know that clashes with Sledgehammer's next game (possibly AW 2) but it wouldn't surprise me if that happened. Hell, all the pre-order bonuses they've done over the years have been made available to buy right around May. They did it this year with The Giant, Nuketown eventually became free, Nuketown Zombies for BO2 was eventually a standalone purchase and even some weapon camos that were pre-order bonuses became free.
I don't know. Maybe I'm just badly aching for this game to be released as a standalone game, but if any of this happened it wouldn't surprise me.

I'm going to start off by saying that I'm very excited about CoD 4 remastered (MWR). I put almost 30 days into the multiplayer on Xbox 360. Hell, I still have my 360 copy and I don't even own a 360 anymore. That's how much I love this game. But I do think a lot of people are missing some things.
Why only 10 maps? The game launched with 16 and added 4 more with the variety pack (total of 20). Why only half? I can't imagine they only plan on doing half of these maps. "We are doing 10 fan favorite maps." News flash: They're all fan favorites. Something else is going on here. If they're planning on releasing the rest as part of the season pass then that's just shitty. I suppose there is the small chance that they'll release the rest over time and not charge for them. I'm just very concerned about the way they're handling this right now.
Another thing worth bringing up is how confident are they with Infinite Warfare? MWR is here to bring back some of those fans that they lost. IW is going to sell A LOT more copies now because of MWR, but what does that say about Infinite Warfare? I'm going to be very interested to see what the difference is in player base for both games a week or two after launch.
I see a lot of people asking "why not sell MWR separately?" Because then it would be competing with their new title. If I actually had a choice between paying $60 for MWR or IW I'd choose MWR all day (if they included all 20 maps). That's why they're not selling it separately. This way you're paying $60 for the new game plus another $20 for MWR. What would be the odds of people dishing out $60 for both games? I certainly wouldn't.
Regardless of how you feel about where CoD is now, Infinite Warfare is set to make A LOT of money.
