The good thing about there being so many Call of Duty games is that there are plenty of options when it comes to what we're going to play. While some think we'll never return to series highs like Call of Duty 2, Black Ops, and World at War, that won't stop Activision from trying.

No matter what your views on the 'best' Call of Duty game are, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't love the original Modern Warfare trilogy. There's a reason Infinity Ward confusedly revamped the series from 2019 to 2023 with a modern version. 

Call of Duty fans want a Modern Warfare Trilogy collection

Seeing the potential of rereleasing the OGs, fans on Reddit have floated the idea of a Modern Warfare Trilogy collection. It's true that we got this back in 2016 with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy, but as that only came to PS3 and Xbox 360, it's more than overdue a revamp.

When the OP asked whether we'd like to see the trilogy released for modern consoles and the Nintendo Switch while also boasting multiplayer, the comments lit up with praise for the long as Activision doesn't screw it up. One cheered, "I'd like a John Price Collection, MP included ofc, Spec Ops included too."

Someone else said, "Not to be an asshole but this isn't even a question. There's no downside to it. This is like asking someone if they want more money...yes everyone is gonna say yes." Another said they'd welcome it, adding, "A remaster which combines all aspects of the multiplayer and includes all maps from three games. I could certainly get behind a release like that."

Not everyone agreed, as someone else concluded, "Activision would absolutely f**k it up, they already bastardised the remaster of CoD4 in a way by adding MTX to a game that had none before. I guarantee you they’d shove an excess of bundles & Blackcell bs into these older games if they had the chance."

It's time to move on

We find ourselves agreeing with one comment where someone said, "Why doesn’t anyone want an original new game?" It's already hard enough to keep up with the original MW trilogy and the modern ones, let alone throw in a remastered OG trilogy.

There's no denying that Infinity Ward has delivered some of the best Call of Duty games of all time, but as Treyarch takes the reins for the rumoured Black Ops Gulf War/Black Ops V, Infinity Ward has some time to go away and take stock of all it's done.

Those whispers of Infinite Warfare or Ghosts sequels never seem to go away, and what about a straight-up Ghost remaster instead of flogging the dead horse that is Modern Warfare? You know that another MW Trilogy would make a fortune, and if you want one, you just have to remind Activision of that fact.
