Activision releases Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, but it turns out the game is a timed-PlayStation 4 exclusive.

p>Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered leaked for the first time over a year ago, and now it's finally out. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is now available for PlayStation 4 owners, remastering the critically-acclaimed campaign with new visuals, but those on PC and Xbox One will be missing out for about a month.

It's been confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a timed-PS4 exclusive. Call of Duty fans on PC and Xbox One can pre-order the game if they want to get the Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost bundle for Modern Warfare and Warzone, but they won't be able to actually play Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered until it launches for those platforms on April 30.

The decision to release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered as a timed-PS4 exclusive is likely to upset some fans of the franchise. As some may recall, there was quite the uproar when the Modern Warfare Spec Ops Survival mode was confirmed to be a timed-PS4 exclusive, and it's easy to see how this decision will generate the same kind of backlash. On the bright side, PC and Xbox One players only have to wait a month for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, whereas Spec Ops Survival is exclusive to PS4 for an entire year.

In the meantime, those that do purchase Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered will be able to look forward to 4k visuals and HDR support on consoles. The PC version seems to be the mostly fully-featured, as it will have an uncapped framerate and ultrawide monitor support.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered also has some new trophies and achievements for players to unlock, but beyond that and the visual improvements, it should be a pretty familiar experience to those that played the original game.

Unfortunately, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remaster does not include the classic MW2 multiplayer maps or the Spec Ops co-op mode. However, it's been suggested that more classic Modern Warfare 2 maps will be remade for Modern Warfare, so at least some of them should be coming back in the future.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is out now for PS4, with a PC and Xbox One version launching on April 30.
