For those on PS4 and PS5 consoles, the update will start automatically but if it doesn't, highlight the game tile, select the 'Check for Update' option, and it should start to download.
If you're looking to download the new update on Xbox, you simply have to find it in your games, click the start button and then the "Manage games and add-ons feature". This should give you the ability to update it from here. If it hasn't happened here, it may already be in your download queue.
Finally, if you play on Steam, you can right-click Modern Warfare 2, go into properties, then go into the updates folder and check for updates. If they don't pop up the minute preload goes live, give them a little while and come back.
