Anyone looking to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on PS4 will be forced to pay £10/$10 more than they did for last year's Call of Duty: Vanguard as Activision has dropped the standard last-gen version. Instead of simply offering a PS4 edition which you could then pay to upgrade later down the line, only the Cross-Gen Bundle is available along with the expensive Vault Edition. The former costs £69.99/$69.99, and now represents the cheapest option on the market.
Last year, Call of Duty: Vanguard cost £59.99/$59.99 for a purely PS4 version, and this option is no longer a thing with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 — that includes both physical and digital options on the PS Store. While it theoretically means the latest entry does offer a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade, customers will have to pay more than last year to get it.
This price rise affects every platform the game is releasing on, like PC and Xbox Series X|S. Scheduled to launch on 28th October 2022, the first proper trailer was released yesterday and we'll get a look at the single player campaign later today at Summer Game Fest Live. Does this cost increase put you off buying the game if you're a PS4 user? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
