Is Modern Warfare 2 on PS4? That's the question about the Call of Duty Sequel that many players who haven't upgraded to the latest PlayStation hardware yet want to know, and the good news is that Activision have already confirmed Modern Warfare 2 will receive a PS4 release at the exact same time as the PS5 version. We've got more details on exactly when that will be below, so you know what date to prepare for.
So we now know that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be getting a PS4 release – but when will it be, and what do we know about the final product? We've got everything you need to know about the game, the release dates, and what you need to know about the PS4 port of Modern Warfare 2 below.
When assessing if Modern Warfare 2, and indeed future Call of Duty games, are coming to PS4, it can help to consider the previous transition from PS3 to PS4. After the PS4 launched in 2013, PS3 players still had access to Call of Duty Ghosts (2013), Advanced Warfare (2014), and Black Ops 3 (2015), before Infinite Warfare (2016) finally became a PS4 exclusive. Of course, the development costs of these big-budget releases have skyrocketed in recent years, plus there are the not-insignificant matters of PS5 hardware shortages and a global pandemic to consider, which makes it much harder to predict how things will progress in the current generation of console hardware.
Will Modern Warfare 2 be on PS4?
After much speculation and debate, the question "is Modern Warfare 2 on PS4" has now been officially answered by Activision. If you head to the pre-order page of the Modern Warfare 2 website and select PlayStation as your format, you'll see that both the Cross-Gen Bundle and Vault Edition options contain the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, which will be available on October 28, 2022. What's more, the Modern Warfare 2 beta which is currently running provides additional access time on PlayStation platforms, meaning there's an extra incentive for PS4 and PS5 gamers to sign up early. The outcome of all this is that PlayStation players can rest easy, knowing that the next instalment in the Call of Duty series is coming their way, including that exclusive additional beta access ahead of other systems.
