Though it hasn’t received too much official news lately, Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be getting a multiplayer reveal in early September. Sources speaking to Tom Henderson (via TryHardGuides) implied the same, noting that the multiplayer beta would take place in mid-late September. This lines up with what another insider, Ralph Valve, reported earlier this month.
Of course, exactly when and how it will be revealed is unknown. The dates for the beta are also yet to be confirmed. There also haven’t been updates on any kind of multiplayer alpha. While a multiplayer reveal and beta so close to launch seems suspicious, Henderson notes that the marketing roadmap “has been planned for months.” Fans can thus expect marketing to “ramp up significantly” after the beta.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is out on October 28th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and PC. Officially, two new multiplayer modes – Hostage and Knockout – have been revealed. However, various aspects of the multiplayer like Field Upgrades, Perks and Killstreaks have been leaked along with modes like Cranked and Demolition. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
