Reports suggest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer might not be revealed before September, a month before the official release. 

Activision are yet to officially reveal the first gameplay of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and according to the latest reports, they won't be doing that anytime soon. 

Industry insider Tom Henderson reveals that the current plan is to showcase the multiplayer gameplay sometime in early September 2022. This will certainly come as a major disappointment for Call of Duty fans who were expecting to see Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer and perhaps  the rumoured DMZ mode next month. 

Despite the expectations from fans, Infinity Ward and Activision always planned to have the reveal in September, not sooner, says Henderson.

We have to say it's an interesting decision to reveal the gameplay so close to the release date given that the players would love to see the game and potentially  test it in alpha/beta tests as soon as possible so they can provide valuable feedback before launch. 

Yes, Activision have pretty much all internal development studios working on Call of Duty but we doubt the developers will be making any big changes so close to launch, regardless of player feedback.

  MORE CALL OF DUTY:

Every change needs additional extensive testing and pre-launch weeks are usually packed with polishing and fixing the existing features so it would probably be impossible to squeeze in more tweaks and adjustments.

At the moment, it's unclear what exactly Activision and Infinity Ward plan to reveal in addition to traditional multiplayer. Perhaps we get to see the DMZ mode or Gunfight, the popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2018 mode.

The reveal should give us a first glimpse at the new maps too, which have leaked recently. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is launching on October 22, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. 

The game is not expected to launch on Xbox Game Pass since the Xbox and Activision Blizzard deal is yet to be approved and PlayStation still have marketing rights for the franchise anyway.
