Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Remastered is shocking news, and although it is not confirmed yet, there are some recent leaks hinting it might happen. The news is fresh about this title, suggesting that the whole game will not be remastered as a complete piece, but we’ll get to see its maps on Call of Duty 2025. Let’s dive into details and seek some possibilities about this new CoD leak of content.
Will Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Be Remastered?
The short answer to this question is no. As of writing, the developers have not announced anything regarding a remaster of Black Ops 2 or any other games in the BO series. However, it seems like Activision is about to treat the next three years of Call of Duty content release with the same algorithm. This means that Black Ops 2 content could get a remaster for a later CoD game.
RUMOR: Call of Duty 2025 is set to follow a similar format to that of #MW3.

Charlie Intel, a trustworthy Call of Duty leaker, has recently posted a bizarre topic. In the above post, it has been claimed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 maps are considered to get a full remaster treatment for Call of Duty 2025. We know that 2024 will be the year that Treyarch releases its Call of Duty game, but why are BO2 remastered maps planned for 2025?
This leak sounds very familiar to what’s about to happen to the Modern Warfare rebooted series. This year, instead of a different Call of Duty title, we have Modern Warfare 3 for 2023. This is the first time that Activision is publishing two Modern Warfare games in a row, and even some of the MW2 content will flow over to MW3 as well.
With this information in mind, it is logical for the developers to have Treyarch’s Black Ops game in 2024 and release a follow-up in year 2025. Then, they can do the same carry-over items from the 2024 game to Call of Duty 2025 and bring all Black Ops 2 remastered maps to the game. It’s the same as Modern Warfare 3, getting all original MW2 maps remastered and accessible on Day 1 of the game’s release.
However, one very important thing to have in mind about this topic is that it’s simply a leak. Maybe if Modern Warfare 3 doesn’t sell and the original MW2 remastered maps get less attention from players, the developers might throw the Black Ops 2 Remastered ideas into the bin. So take all the unconfirmed info with a grain of salt, and let’s wait until the official statements are made about this topic.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is due to release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on November 10, 2023.
