As we are nearing the end of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s life cycle, fans of the franchise are looking ahead to Infinity Ward’s next entry, Modern Warfare 2. The game was revealed on June 8 as we welcomed back the members of Task Force 141. Also, we have been treated to a taste of some gameplay when the Dark Water campaign mission was shown off at Summer Game Fest. Now, Infinity Ward has recently shared the dates for when the Modern Warfare 2 beta will go live on each platform. Here is everything you need to know about getting your hands on it.
The Modern Warfare 2 beta will kick off in September and it will run across two different weeks. When you can jump into the action-packed beta depends on the platform you play on and whether you have early access or not.
