Activision Closes Loophole That Let PS4 Users Play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Online Early

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered

Activision has today locked down Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s public online servers, after a glitch allowed PS4 users to gain access to the title’s multiplayer almost a week ahead of release.

Those players who pre-ordered the game have been able to play the remastered first-person shooter’s campaign mode since October 4, but a glitch introduced with the release of a patch yesterday allowed some users full access to the game – including its online multiplayer component.

A further loophole then allowed all Modern Warfare Remastered users to get online simply by joining another player who had a match in progress – either via their friends list or, more accessibly, the PS4’s communities section.

This afternoon, however, Activision and developer Raven Software have locked down all online game types in a bid to quell the unintended early access; all matchmaking attempts now return a “Playlist Unavailable” error message. That being said, some users are still reportedly having success playing private matches, although it’s expected that this too will shortly be fixed.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered launches alongside the latest entry in the popular franchise, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, on November 4.

    I was able to play it for about 10 minutes. It looked and played absolutely amazing. However this does prove that you do not need the Infinite Warfare disc to play Modern Warfare Remastered’s multiplayer contrary to what they have been stating. This is Activision’s way of milking more money from people because they know that Infinite Warfare does not have legs to stand on for long.

    I will just wait for the eventual statement from them in the lines of “You no longer need to own the disc in order to play it. You can now download it and play right away!”. That is when I will GLADLY put down $20 to play Modern Warfare remastered.
