Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 announces open beta and early access dates

The new Activision Blizzard production developed by Infinity Ward takes shape and reveals that the Grand Prix map will be included in its beta.

Activision Blizzard is preparing for the launch of a new installment of its flagship franchise. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is Infinity Ward's upcoming game, a reimagining of the classic that, although the product is totally original, is built on its foundations. With only a few months to go before its launch, the studio has detailed the dates of the open beta, as well as the early access to it.

The alliance between Sony Interactive Entertainment and Activision Blizzard ensures that PlayStation console players will have some exclusive benefits, such as being the first to test the open beta. However, early access is limited to those who pre-order the game, as the company explains on the official Twitter account of the franchise.
