Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered would make a lot of money if sold separately. Activision likes money. It has to happen eventually.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered may be in for a standalone release, something series fans have been asking for pretty much since announce.

Previously only available with special editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (which are getting thin on the ground), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was listed on game rental service Gamefly.

According to the listing, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will release on June 20 on PS4 and July 20 on Xbox One. The pattern fits the usual PlayStation Call of Duty exclusivity window.

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Gamefly pages have since been pulled, but not before CharlieIntel got screenshots.

Getting out the salt shaker for a minute, it’s possible that it was some sort of mistake, or that it indicates a Gamefly-exclusive arrangement rather than a general release. Neither of those explanations are as simple as “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be released standalone next month though, are they.

A standalone Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered makes a lot of sense, and seems more likely than Activision spinning off Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Zombies content for standalone release, a thing that’s actually happening.

If Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is going standalone, expect confirmation at E3 2017.
