The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 release date is fast approaching and it’s time for those of you with Modern Warfare 2 early access to start preparing for the next chapter in this series’ story. But, you might be sitting there wondering when everything kicks off – and you’re not alone, if you are. So, here’s everything you need to know about when the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 campaign release time is set for.

If you’re someone who has digitally pre-ordered Infinity Ward’s shooter, you will be pleased to know that you don’t have long to wait when it comes to the release time of the new Modern Warfare 2 campaign. Not only that, but Activision has already offered us an insight into some of the great Modern Warfare 2 campaign rewards that are up for grabs.

So, if you’re someone who was looking for more of a reason to jump into this game’s story mode, there it is. You can actually earn new operators, calling cards, stickers, double XP tokens, and weapon blueprints for Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer by finishing the campaign.

But, enough about that. Here’s the information you came for. Early access to the Modern Warfare 2 campaign starts at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST on October 20th. This is roughly one week before the full release of Modern Warfare 2 – meaning, it’s about a week before multiplayer drops.

With Call of Duty campaigns often lasting anything between six and ten hours, a week should be more than enough time to play through the story at least once – if not twice.

It’s also worth noting that all the aforementioned campaign rewards will be available at any stage. So, you don’t need to rush and finish the campaign during the early access period. However, doing so will give you access to a weapon blueprint for one of the best Modern Warfare 2 guns at launch – which is hardly a bad thing.

We can’t say for certain, but this could be one of the best competitive FPS games available when it drops – and that’s exciting. If you want to know when things really get started though, you can find out more about the Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 start date right here.
