Find out everything we know about when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) will come out and how you can play it early.
Most Call of Duty players would say that the original Modern Warfare 2 is the best COD game ever. After some rough games in the series, the rebooted Modern Warfare 2019 was the one that brought the series back into the spotlight.
Because of these things, there’s no doubt that fans are more excited for MW2 2022 than any other COD in recent memory.
Here is all the information you need about the game’s upcoming release.
MW2 Release Date 2022:
On October 28, 2022, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) will come out. But those who pre-order the game digitally will be able to play the Campaign on October 20.
MW2 (2022) comes out 4735 days after the first MW2 game, which came out on November 10, 2009. It’s important to remember that the new MW2 is its own game and not a remaster, even though it has some similarities with the first one.
It will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox X/S, and PC. The game will be on both Battle.net and Steam, so choose the one that works best for you.
This gives players about 20 days to play MW2 before the new Call of Duty Battle Royale game comes out with Warzone 2.
When Is MW2 Coming Out?
Most likely, MW2 will come out at midnight on October 28 everywhere in the world, just like the last few Call of Duty games.
The PC versions of the games, on the other hand, tend to come out as:
- 9 PM PT (California / West Coast)
- 12 AM ET (New York)
- 5 AM BST (UK)
- 3 PM AEDT (AUS)
How The New Zealand Trick Lets You Play Mw2 Early
Even though MW2 comes out at midnight everywhere in the world, you can play it a day early if you know how.
Here’s how to use the New Zealand trick to play Modern Warfare 2 before everyone else!
How To Get Early Access to MW2 Campaign
If you pre-order the game digitally on any platform before October 20, you can get early access to the Modern Warfare 2 Campaign.
If you buy a physical copy of MW2, there is no way to get early access to the Campaign.
Thanks to an offer from Activision, you can play the MW2 Campaign a week early without having to do anything sneaky.
It looks like the publisher wants to boost pre-order sales and get more people to play the Campaign by letting people play it before the multiplayer starts on October 28.
Where To Pre-Order MW2
Modern Warfare 2 can be pre-ordered at all of the big stores and shops. You can buy it digitally from the PlayStation or Xbox stores, as well as on PC through Steam or Battle.net.
We have a list of the best MW2 pre-order bonuses if you want a physical copy of the game.
You can also get MW2 with a PS5 console, but pre-orders of the exclusive device are hard to come by.
MW2 (2022) Download Size
Activision hasn’t said how much space you need to download Modern Warfare 2 yet. But we don’t think it will be a small install.
Modern Warfare 2’s beta was about 25 GB, while Modern Warfare 2019 is about 100 GB on console and 175 GB on PC.
Modern Warfare 2 won’t be bundled with Warzone 2.0, which is good news. Instead, it will be its own application, which should make its file size a little smaller.
MW2 New Features And Gameplay Changes
As usual, Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer and Warzone 2 modes will have a variety of new and old weapons.
Here are all of the Modern Warfare 2 weapons we were able to try out in the beta. When the game comes out, the list will be even longer.
Leaks suggest that the ACR and the Intervention, two classic weapons from the first version of MW2, will be among the guns that will be brought back.
And both MW2 and Warzone 2.0 will have a brand-new Gunsmith from Infinity Ward. The new and improved Gunsmith adds weapon Receivers, which let the unlocks for one gun be used on other guns in the same family.
Will Skins And Guns From Modern Warfare Carry Over To MW2?
No, skins and guns will not work in any way in Modern Warfare 2019. All players will start from scratch in MW2. However, players who took part in the MW2 Open Beta may have unlocked some exclusive items that they’ll start with at launch.
Activision has confirmed that other beta progress will not carry over to MW2.
