Just as previous leaked predicted, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta will begin in September, although the exact dates have shifted a little. Previously, the beta was thought to begin on the 15th of September for PlayStation pre-order customers, but Activision has now confirmed a September 16th start date.
In an announcement over the weekend, Activision announced that the PlayStation exclusive beta for pre-order customers will run from September 16th to the 17th. Then, PlayStation owners can participate in an open beta, which is free for everyone to download, from the 18th until the 20th.
After that, there will be a crossplay beta, opening things up to pre-order customers across Xbox, PC and PlayStation. Pre-order customers will get access to the beta on September 22nd to the 23rd, and then the open beta runs from September 24th to the 26th.
That will leave Infinity Ward with just one month to analyse feedback and implement any last-minute changes before Modern Warfare 2's October 28th launch date.
Aside from the beta, Activision has also announced plans to reveal more on Modern Warfare 2 starting on the 15th of September. This live stream will include reveals for MW2, as well as Warzone 2.0 and Call of Duty Mobile. We may also get confirmation of the upcoming ‘Tarkov inspired' game mode, which recently leaked.
