Pre-order details for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have leaked, confirming the game’s cross-gen and has a PlayStation first beta.

We only earned of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s release date thanks to a low-key Twitter announcement but now more details about its release have been shared, albeit not officially.

On the same day as the announcement, Call Of Duty: Vanguard and Call Of Duty: Warzone received a new update, which added new weapons, a new multiplayer map for Vanguard, and other content.

Dataminers have scoured the new files added to the games and discovered information pertaining to Modern Warfare 2. Specifically, three different editions for the game – standard, cross-gen, and Vault edition – and their respective content.

A new Call Of Duty having multiple special editions to choose from isn’t at all surprising, but we can glean some interesting details from the leak.

For starters, the existence of the cross-gen bundle confirms that Modern Warfare 2 will still release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, rather than be exclusive to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

All three editions also provide early access to an open beta when pre-ordered. While that could easily have been assumed, said beta will be available on PlayStation platforms first.

The Call Of Duty: Vanguard beta was exactly the same, since Sony has paid for preferential treatment for several years now, but that does seem somewhat peculiar now, considering Activision is being bought by Microsoft.

It’s not know exactly how much longer Activision and Sony’s marketing deal will last for, but Microsoft has no choice but to abide by it. Just as it couldn’t do anything about exclusivity for Bethesda games Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo.

That means PlayStation first betas could still be a thing for the next couple of Call Of Duty games, although current rumours suggest that the marketing deal ends after the 2023 game.

As for the presumably more expensive Vault edition, it comes with a bunch of exclusive items, such as additional operator variants for the multiplayer, skins, and 50 tier skips for the first season’s battle pass.

The information was compiled and shared by Charlie INTEL and you can probably expect Activision to officially confirm these details and make pre-orders available later in the year. Perhaps even in early June, at what would have been E3 time.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 releases on October 11 for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC platforms.
