Thousands of Call of Duty (CoD) fans have signed a petition for Activision and Infinity Ward to remake Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for PS4 and Xbox One. The petition was created last week (5 March) by Ramez Zahra of Australia on and has been signed by 50,000 fans of the blockbuster first person shooter franchise.

In the petition's description Ramez writes:" I speak for every one when I say that Modern Warfare 2 was one of Activision's best game [sic]. Just a fun and enjoyable game that really gives you that nostalgic feeling. The guns, maps, kill streaks were just incredible. At the moment MW2 for PS3 & Xbox [360] is just overrun by hackers. If they remaster the game and sort a couple things out (e.g noob tubing) it would make a lot of people happy."

While he does not speak for everyone (the first Modern Warfare is clearly the best one) he certainly speaks for a lot of people - 50,000 in fact. The letter is addressed to Activision, it's CEO Bobby Kotick, and Infinity Ward CEO Jason West (seemingly not aware of the fact West left Infinity Ward in a blaze of controversy back in 2010).

Infinity Ward created the Call of Duty franchise in 2003 and were responsible for 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – which turned the series into the juggernaut of sales and influence that it remains to this day.

Their last game in the series was 2013's Call of Duty: Ghosts and it's not yet clear what they are working on at the moment. Last year's CoD – Advanced Warfare – was developed by Sledgehammer Games, and this year's will be developed by Treyarch, the studio responsible for the Black Ops CoD games.
