The latest Modern Warfare 2 leak reveals DMZ mode details

According to the latest intel, the DMZ mode is launching with Modern Warfare 2 later this year.

Activision has grand ambitions for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, as they should. Infinity Ward set a high bar with 2019's Modern Warfare reboot. On top of this, Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 might be Activision's swan song before Microsoft acquires the company. If nothing else, Activision will want to go out on a high note.

According to reports, the DMZ mode for Modern Warfare 2 has been in development for at least four years.

Unfortunately, Activision's vision didn't include safekeeping sensitive information. Case in point, a data miner recently got his hands on maps and images for Modern Warfare 2 and 2024's Call of Duty.

We'll get more leaks like this the closer that we get to Modern Warfare 2's release date.

Now, multiple sources claim that the long-rumored DMZ mode is not going to be a separate free-to-play game. Instead, it will be a part of Modern Warfare 2 once it comes out later this year. A dataminer provided screenshots of the DMZ mode for Modern Warfare 2 along with objectives. The said objectives like "Search the marked areas for radioactivity" and "defend the charge until detonation", among others, give players a good idea of what to expect from the incoming game mode for Modern Warfare 2.

In addition to this, Tom Henderson corroborates claims that DMZ mode will be a part of Modern Warfare 2.

One takeaway from all of these leaks is that the development is going well. Otherwise, we would have heard rumblings of a potential delay. If nothing else, we should expect Modern Warfare 2 to come out on October 28 as is originally planned with Warzone 2 coming soon after.

Speaking of progress, another insider claims to know when the open beta dates for Modern Warfare 2 will start. If we believe these talks, Activision and Infinity Ward are confident to hold the beta dates so close to the actual launch.
