Activision has officially released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered–though it's just the campaign and it's only available on PS4 for now. If you're looking to play the game on Xbox One or PC, you'll have to wait until April 30.
A limited-time PlayStation exclusivity deal for a Call of Duty game isn't anything new, this has been the tradition for the franchise since 2015. Normally, however, the PlayStation exclusivity is only in regards to multiplayer–either a certain mode is limited to PlayStation at the start (like Spec Ops Survival in 2019's Modern Warfare) or PlayStation gets access to certain content updates first (like in 2018's Black Ops 4).
Play alongside Soap, Shepherd, Ghost and other familiar faces as you fight back against Vladimir Makarov, the Inner Circle, and other unforeseen foes.

For a whole single-player campaign to launch for one system first is a new one. Sure, when Modern Warfare Remastered first released as a standalone campaign, it was a PS4 limited-time exclusive too, but it was also already available as a free add-on for buying certain editions of Infinite Warfare. You didn't have to wait for the Xbox One and PC versions back then, you just had to wait if you wanted to get it on its own. In comparison, people looking to play MW2 Remastered on Xbox One or PC do have to wait as the game isn't bundled in with any other Call of Duty title.
