Will Warzone 2.0 have a beta?

It's been an exciting week for Call of Duty fans as not only has Modern Warfare II been officially revealed, but also a "wholly new," "state-of-the-art experience" dubbed as Warzone 2.0.

As such, it's perhaps no surprise that players are wondering when is the first moment they can try out the new game. Here's a breakdown of whether or not Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 will have a beta.

Warzone 2.0 Beta Explained

At the time of publication, a Warzone 2.0 beta test has yet to be officially announced. However, that's not to say that won't ever be one either, of course.

Considering that Modern Warfare 2's Open Beta just barely got announced and remains without a publicized start date, it's certainly to be expected that Warzone 2.0 news will be coming much later.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to release worldwide on Oct. 28, 2022. Later this year, Warzone 2.0 is set to arrive.

According to leaks, Warzone 2.0 will drop between December 2022 and January 2023.

Ultimately, it's likely that there will be a beta test of some sort considering that just about every recent COD title has had one, including Infinity Ward's original Warzone mode back in Spring 2020.

Just was with the incoming MW2 Open Beta, it will be interesting to see whether or not the Warzone 2.0 beta would be giving first dibs to players on PlayStation 4 and PS5.
