With the original coming out back in 2009, the popular FPS title’s remaster is on its way and Modern Warfare 2 beta dates have been announced by Activision.
Modern Warfare 2 beta dates announced
The beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will begin next month, with PlayStation gamers getting access first, followed by those on Xbox and PC. At the CDL Champs (Call of Duty League Championship) competition, Infinity Ward announced the news. The dates are divided by console and whether or not you preordered the game, much like with prior betas.

How long is MW2 beta?
On September 16 and 17, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 customers who have preordered the game can begin playing the first early access beta. The open beta for all PlayStation users follows, starting on September 18 and running until September 20.
The PlayStation, Xbox, and PC crossplay beta will run from September 22 through September 23, and the open cross-play beta will run from September 24 through September 26 for all platforms. Every session starts at noon ET. Infinity Ward also teased Grand Prix, a new multiplayer map that is situated on a racetrack, during CDL Champs. Play on the map will be possible during the beta.
Is MW2 beta out?
The beta is announced, but not yet released for gamers to enjoy and will be available for people to try it out on September 16 at the earliest. The developers are going to be releasing the beta for different consoles and PC separately at first, and after each one is concluded, will conduct a cross-play beta test.
According to Infinity Ward, if you haven’t pre-ordered the game, you may be able to get a beta code that will grant you early access. While it already handed some codes out during the tournament yesterday, you’ll have more chances to snag one from various streams and YouTubers leading up to the beta’s start date.
We got our first look at Modern Warfare II in June, but Infinity Ward plans to share a lot more information about the next game at its Call of Duty: Next event on September 15 (including a complete multiplayer reveal). On October 28, Modern Warfare II becomes available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC (through Battle.net and Steam).
