Every year, Activision releases a short trial of the upcoming Call of Duty games’ multiplayer early to give players a taste of the new game and find any major issues that need fixing ahead of release.

According to leaker RalphsValve, Modern Warfare 2’s beta will take place in September. The leaker claimed the PlayStation-exclusive weekend will begin with early access on September 15 and will be open to all PlayStation players on September 17-19.

Then, the cross-play beta will reportedly take place the following weekend with early access on September 22, and the open beta lasting from September 24-26.

Players can get this early access by pre-ordering Modern Warfare 2, and they’ll also get the free Final Judgement bundle for Vanguard and Warzone that includes an Automaton Blueprint.

Call of Duty players, especially those who remember Battlefield 2042’s beta, were immediately worried about how close the beta will reportedly be to release. Most expected it to arrive in August, with September only giving Infinity Ward just over a month to fix any issues that crop up in the betas. But, some took this as a sign that the devs are confident in the game.
