Activision angered Call of Duty fans when it revealed its remastered version of 2007's seminal Modern Warfare was to be exclusive to certain special editions of the latest game in the series, Infinite Warfare.
Despite their assertions though, most believed the game would one day be released as a standalone title due to the sheer amount of money to be made from those interested in the release but unwilling to stump up the cash for two games.
It seems that a standalone release may be imminent, if a now-removed product listing on GameFly (discovered by Charlie Intel) is to be believed. It suggests the game will be released on 20 June for PS4, and 20 July on Xbox One as part of Sony's ongoing partnership with Activision.
If Modern Warfare Remastered is indeed being released separately, then a PC version is likely to join the console games.
Available with the Deluxe and Legacy Editions of Infinite Warfare (the Legacy Edition is now £39.99 on Amazon), the re-release was celebrated upon release for the quality job Raven Software did updating the classic.
The entire campaign was remastered, as were a selection of the original title's multiplayer maps. Further maps were later added as paid downloadable content – which proved controversial to say the least.
Activision were already criticised for packing a sought-after game in with Infinity Warfare, which despite garnering great sales struggled to resonate with fans of the series. To then charge players for maps that existed in the original release angered many.
Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games revealed this year's title, Call of Duty: WW2, last week.
