GAMERS will only be able to enjoy the multiplayer beta for this year’s new Call of Duty just before launch, an insider has claimed.
Despite the projected October 28, 2022 release date, it’s believed fans won’t be able to access the multiplayer beta until mid to late September.
Those who pre-order the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have been promised early access to the game’s multiplayer open beta.
The fine print on the site says that this early access can only happen two days before launch.
However, there is one more clue to the studio’s Early Access plans.
The site also claims that those who pre-order for PlayStation 4 and PS5 will get exclusive access to the beta first, although it doesn’t tell us how much earlier that is.
For recent releases in the Call of Duty franchise, the beta has been available since early September.
2020’s Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was revealed in multiplayer on September 9th, while last year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard was accessible on September 7th.
However, according to industry insiders Tom HendersonCall of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta access will not be announced until mid to late September.
It is believed that those who pre-ordered the game will be able to access the multiplayer shortly after this announcement.
This is apparently not an indication that development is behind schedule.
It seems that the marketing plan was planned early in development and the department wanted the beta to be available close to release to increase the hype surrounding the game.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is not a remake of the 2009 game of the same name.
Instead, it’s a sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot.
So far this is all speculation and it is uncertain when the beta will be revealed or if there will be an alpha playtest phase.
Whatever happens, we’ll find out before the game launches for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation, and PC in October.
