Infinity Ward's Rob Bowling has tweeted that anybody who has a retail copy of Modern Warfare 2, instead of a pirate/modded version, their multiplayer stats won't be reset.
It comes as last week, Bowling said that a full multiplayer reset was on the cards.
"Any players who purchased a legit retail copy will not be reset or banned. Only modded / pirate versions will be," he said.
"ANY store selling #MW2 early is in violation of street date. There are no "special permissions". That said, we won't punish players for it."
There you have it.
