UPDATE - June 15, 2022

Within the Modern Warfare 2 product description on Amazon, the retailer may have leaked the start date for the beta.

Its swift removal suggests there is some legitimacy to an August start date.

The hype surrounding the launch of Modern Warfare 2 is building ahead of its hotly anticipated release.

Infinity Ward's sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare claims to be a "new era" for the Call of Duty franchise and as leaks surrounding the game's DMZ mode and multiplayer Perk system emerge, fans are turning their attention to the Modern Warfare 2 beta.

Modern Warfare 2 Beta Release Date

Modern Warfare 2 Beta Content

While we don't know what the Modern Warfare 2 beta will include, we can take a guess based on the previous Call of Duty betas.


There's a high chance of the beta featuring a small selection of multiplayer maps alongside a handful of weapons and game modes. Typically, a beta takes place over the course of two weekends with the developers adding more content in the second to whet the appetite of fans.

So far, there's no information on how players can sign up for the Modern Warfare 2 beta. It's likely those who pre-order the game will receive some kind of access to the opening weekend but until Infinity Ward shares more, it's unclear.

If there are two weekends, everyone will get the chance to play Modern Warfare 2 ahead of launch regardless of their platform.
