The trend towards remasters continues, although one series that hasn't been revisited - so far - is Call of Duty. This, however, may well be set to change in the future.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said in a recent interview that a potential Call of Duty remaster was something that the company "talk about and think about a lot."

"If done well, I think [remasters] can be great," Hirshberg told GameInformer. "You talk about nostalgia, and people have such connection to the games they love from the last cycle.

"They want to see what it would look like if someone did it right for this cycle. It's always the opportunity cost, meaning we need every body we can get to make the content we're already committed to for our new games. It's always a matter of finding great people to do that work. I would love to play Modern Warfare 1 or the original Black Ops. There's certainly a deep well there. No announcements, but it's something we talk about and think about a lot."

Obviously this is far from official confirmation, but for fans desperate to replay the Modern Warfare trilogy on their current-gen console, there is at least hope that Activision might update their shooter franchise for the latest generation of hardware.
