Modern Warfare 2 has appeared in the PlayStation Store for players to add to their wishlist. The game’s privacy notices have players speculating that MW2 could support VR.

Even though we haven’t seen any official gameplay yet, Activision have confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 will arrive on October 28 and have revealed Task Force 141 and who’ll be playing them.

With the release date in the wild and the key art revealed, Modern Warfare 2 is at the top of the PlayStation Store where players can add it to their wishlist. This store listing offers up a VR Headset safety notice, opening up the possibility that Modern Warfare 2 features virtual reality in some capacity.

As spotted by Twitter user Øddy, if you head to the “Health / Ratings / Privacy / Terms” section of Modern Warfare 2’s PlayStation Store listing, you’ll spot a “VR Headset Safety Notice” and a “PlayStation Move Safety Notice.”

Typically, these only appear for games that actually have VR support — it’s not there for Warzone, Cold War, or Vanguard, for example.

This has led players to believe that Modern Warfare 2 might feature VR support or a VR-exclusive mode similar to Infinite Warfare’s Jackal Assault. If Modern Warfare 2’s campaign includes any missions on the level of 2019’s Clean House, then VR could make for a truly immersive experience.

Interestingly though, if you still have Cold War’s alpha or Vanguard’s beta in your PlayStation library, you can see that these early versions of the games have the VR Headset and PlayStation Move notices. Plus, upcoming games such as Hogwarts Legacy and Suicide Squad also feature the notices.

This makes it possible that PlayStation includes these VR notices as default in the run-up to launch, and removes them if VR support isn’t included.

While there’s a chance Modern Warfare 2 will feature VR in some capacity, there’s far from any guarantee. We recommend keeping your expectations in check until the game’s official reveal which is expected in June.
