In case you haven't heard the news yet, the much-anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered won't be releasing on Xbox One until April 30th due to a timed exclusive agreement with PlayStation. It won't have multiplayer either when it launches, and Activision has explained why.
In a blog post, the company indicated that its focus has been to "bring players together seamlessly in one unified online multiplayer playground":
Rather than release a separate, multiplayer experience as a standalone pack, Activision and Infinity Ward are looking to bring more classic map experiences to new life within the Modern Warfare universe as it continues to grow and build over time.
Meanwhile, pre-orders for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered are now live on the Microsoft Store. You can pick it up for £19.99/$19.99, which includes an Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle available for use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone.

The real reason that it doesn’t have multiplayer is because Activision does not want to split the player base up from Warzone. They learnt that the hard way when they bundled Modern Warfare 4 Remaster with Infinite Warfare.
I’ll still pick this some day up when it’s in a sale.
@MaccaMUFC Not just Warzone in general all of MP.
I will be boycotting this garbage & just play the backwards compatible version, for free, on my Xbox.
