MW Beta

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (not the 2009 one) launches October 28th this year, with long-time developer Infinity Ward at the helm once again in 2022. Recently, publisher Activision confirmed that a beta would precede the game's launch, and thanks to a new leak, we may now know when it's coming to Xbox!

Prominent Call of Duty leaker Ralph has revealed all of the upcoming beta dates for Modern Warfare 2. We must stress that these are just leaks at present and haven't been confirmed by Activision yet. However, these dates seem plausible, given the game's launch date.

The cross-play beta is set to come to all systems September 22-23 for early access, and September 24-26 as an open beta for all players. Early access is granted for pre-ordering either the standard edition or the vault edition of Modern Warfare 2.

Sadly, the leak also shares that a PlayStation-exclusive beta is indeed still on the cards. This one should go ahead September 15-16 for early access and September 17-19 for all players on PlayStation systems. Bummer.

Again, none of this is confirmed just yet. However, we already knew about the PlayStation exclusivity window, so this set of dates does line up with that info. We'd expect Activision to officially announce the Modern Warfare 2 beta dates in the coming weeks.

Are you disappointed in the PlayStation exclusivity period? Or just excited about the open beta? Let us know!
