Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was leaked on the Playstation store just yesterday. The game is reportedly going to take place in a far-off futuristic sci-fi setting, a departure from the settings of the earlier games in the series.
From a Call of Duty rumors and leaks website called charlieINTEL.com comes an interesting bit of possible new information about the Infinite Warfare game.

According to their post, a Snapchat user got a picture of a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition preorder card from a Target retail store. The card itself shows that the Legacy Edition will include Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare remastered.
This type of news was inevitable for the Call of Duty franchise.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out back in September 2007, and the success of the game and its multiplayer component caused a renaissance of the franchise’s continuity. From Modern Warfare sequels, to Black Ops, and even Ghosts – it can all be traced back to COD 4.
Remastering a game from almost ten years ago isn’t too outrageous either. It would make sense for Activision to move forward on a deal like this now.
