The second installment in the ongoing reboot of the popular series will be launched on October 28, 2022, for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net and Steam.
COD: Modern Warfare 2 will feature some of the series’ iconic characters, including Captain John Price, Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, fan-favorite Simon “Ghost” Riley, and Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish. The new title will also introduce a new character named Colonel Alejandro Vargas, a Tier 1 Operator and member of the Mexican Special Forces, who will most likely be the game’s new player character.

The standard PC and Cross-Gen bundles will also get their own set of rewards and can also be updated to the Vault Edition.
Lastly, the only physical editions of Modern Warfare 2 that will be available are the Cross-Gen Bundle for Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, a cross-gen version for PS4, and a next-gen version for PS5. All those who pre-order any of the editions of the game will get access to the open beta.
