Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is now being sold as a standalone edition on not only PlayStation 4, but PC and Xbox One as well.

Initially, the remaster was restricted to being a bonus for one of the more expensive editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, released last November. It stayed that way for eight months, requiring players to buy Infinite Warfare‘s Legacy Edition, which went for $20 more than the standard edition of Infinite Warfare. In essence, many gamers were paying $80 to play what is now a 10-year-old game. Infinite Warfare was poorly received by fans, which gave Electronic Arts’ Battlefield 1 a chance to excel last year.

Not quite so exclusive

In June, the standalone edition hit PlayStation 4 first, as Activision continues its ongoing exclusivity deal with Sony, which includes not just exclusive content, it seems, but first dibs on some releases. Now, though, the game is out on Xbox One and PC, going for the same price PlayStation gamers have had since late June  – $39.99.

Meanwhile, Activision is hoping that its own attempt to go back in time, Call of Duty: WWII, will regain the company some of the good will it lost with Advanced Warfare and Infinite Warfare. The signs so far are pretty goodCall of Duty: WWII hits PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 3, 2017.
