You will not be able to play the remastered version of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare without inserting the disc for Infinite Warfare.
Activision confirms that you will need to pop in the Infinite Warfare disc before you can play Modern Warfare on their site.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is included on the Infinite Warfare Xbox One disc (no voucher code required) in the Legacy Edition and Legacy Pro Edition of Infinite Warfare. Before Modern Warfare Remastered can be played, an additional download is required. The game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.
Most likely the reason for this is because Activision doesn’t want you selling Call Of Duty Modern Warfare for a profit. It makes perfect sense when you look at it but we are sure there will be ways around it.
Currently this only applies to gamers that go out and buy the actual disc. For those who have a digital download have no need to worry since you will not have a physical disc.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare is included when you purchase one of the premium version of Infinite Warfare.
