Activision allegedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Call of Duty fan project known as sm2, forcing it to shut down. A small team of programmers created sm2, a Call of Duty mod based on the Modern Warfare 2 (2009) engine. The free-to-play game was planned to be a compilation of all the previous Call of Duty installments. Activision has reportedly opted to end the project, for whatever reason.
The sm2 Twitter account announced on the social media platform that a team member had received a cease-and-desist letter from Activision Publishing about the sm2 project. We are stopping all operations permanently in accordance with this directive. I want to thank everyone for their support over the last two years. Activision has not yet addressed why it allegedly decided to issue the cease and desist and terminate the SM2 project (and probably won't). The Modern Warfare 2 Remastered engine (H1) would replace the project's original Modern Warfare 2 engine (IW4) due to technological considerations, the sm2 project's developers revealed in April.
