Although there's still plenty of time left on the Vanguard game cycle, the attention of many Call of Duty fans is already turning towards the launch of Modern Warfare 2. The sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare is already generating plenty of hype with leaks surrounding the brand-new DMZ mode appearing frequently.
In addition to DMZ leaks, a report from notable leaker "RalphsValve" shares a wealth of information on the Modern Warfare 2 alpha, the first chance for fans to play the game ahead of its full launch.
Amid rumours of Modern Warfare 2's development being ahead of schedule, the next step in the game's launch is the alpha. With that said, find all there is to know about the Modern Warfare 2 alpha in this hub packed with all the intel.
Modern Warfare 2 Alpha Release Date
The report from RalphsValve claims the alpha will launch in early August. With Infinity Ward having three years to develop Modern Warfare 2, the alpha enables the developer to iron out any potential bugs before the full game launches.
Once Infinity Ward shares an exact date in August, we will update the hub with the latest information.
Modern Warfare 2 Gunfight
The debut of Gunfight in Modern Warfare proved hugely popular. The two-versus-two mode on small maps added a fun alternative to the standard dose of multiplayer and just like the 2019 prequel, the Modern Warfare 2 alpha will feature Gunfight.
Gunfight offers a small slice of what to expect in the multiplayer experience likely to appear as part of the Modern Warfare 2 beta.
Modern Warfare 2 Alpha Platforms
Although Activision is likely to become a Microsoft-owned publisher in the not too distant future, there's a high chance of the Modern Warfare 2 alpha is exclusive to PlayStation users. The current deal between Sony and Call of Duty's publisher is still in place so it's unlikely PC and Xbox players will have a chance to play.
Thankfully, those that miss out on the alpha will get the chance to play the beta before the full game launches.
That's all there is to know about the Modern Warfare 2 alpha for the time being. While we wait for more information, check out our dedicated page for all the latest news and leaks.
