Sony decides not to launch Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered in Russia

The title is available on Xbox and PC via Battle.net

The relationship between Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the Russian market has been troubled for some time, because of the details of the plot and the share of controversy that this involves. There were problems with last year’s reboot and now, the remastering of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 lends itself, again, to suspicion, as Sony decided not to release it in Russia without offering a detailed explanation. The title is available on Xbox One and PC.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a remastered version of the fictional individual campaign experience released in 2009, but fully restored in HD. “Activision explained to the American magazine GameSpot. “Sony Interactive Entertainment has decided not to sell Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered in the Russia PlayStation Store. We are eager to launch Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered in digital format, both on Xbox One and PC via Battle.net in Russia .”

Although the explanation is superficial, it is not necessary to go further to find a reason and that is that Russia plays a pivotal role in the narrative of the complete saga, but the sequel to Modern Warfare, specifically, incorporates a mission that portrays a massacre in an airport, which Activision voluntarily eliminated from the Russian version of 2009. Presumably, then, this aspect returned to weigh on the commercial and marketing strategy for remastering.

As we mentioned, last year there were also problems with Modern Warfare, as certain elements of the plot put the Russian army in an antagonistic role, while some historical events were reinterpreted in an otherwise controversial way.
