Modern Warfare 2 will run on a now unified IW engine, and not only will it be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, but it’s also coming to PC via Battle.net and Steam. You can pre-order on all gaming platforms, and doing so will give you early access to the upcoming open beta. As seen in PlayStation’s Modern Warfare reveal trailer, the beta will be available “at least 5 days earlier than any other platform.” That’s similar to Call of Duty: Vanguard’s beta access last year, which means we may see some other similarities in the Modern Warfare II open beta.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been unveiled, and an open beta will be available soon before the game’s release on October 28, 2022 – with PS4 and PS5 owners getting first dibs. Modern Warfare 2 will be developed by Infinity Ward and will follow the events of 2019’s Modern Warfare. It will have a story, online multiplayer, and a special ops co-op option. Following the debut, you can expect a slew of free content, including new maps, modes, and seasonal events.
More open beta news will be announced “soon,” so stay tuned for further updates. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 might be the last in the series for a while, seeing as Call of Duty is reportedly taking a break in 2023. Still, we know Warzone 2.0 will be arriving later in 2022. MW2 is available from $69.99, and you can pre-order it now.
Infinity Ward has yet to announce an official date for the Modern Warfare 2 open beta, but pre-ordering a copy on your platform of choice will get you early access. According to the announcement, we also know that any experience gained in the beta will not carry over from the open beta to the full game. However, we may have an idea of when it might launch. Vanguard offered PlayStation owners alpha access in August last year, with a two-weekend beta kicking off on September 13. This means we may see a Modern Warfare 2 beta pop up sometime in early September. Plus, MW2 will launch on October 28, a week earlier than Vanguard’s November 5 release, meaning we could see an earlier beta.
