You might be able to pre-load Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on these dates

It looks like we won't have to wait for too long to start pre-loading Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 comes out on the 28th with early access (exclusive to those who pre-ordered the game) starting on the 20th. But, while plenty of gamers can't hide their excitement for the game to come out, Activision Blizzard still hasn't revealed one key detail - the pre-load date.

Pre Load Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Dates
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 "might" be able to pre-load later this week.

Pre-loading lets gamers download a game around 48-72 hours before it is playable, so the download size at launch is much smaller and more manageable. Because the Call of Duty franchise is infamous for having a massive file size, many users are eager to find out when it will be available for pre-loading.

According to @PlayStationSize, fans may start downloading MW2 to prepare for its release on the 19th - two days before the early access campaign period starts. In addition, another Reddit shared evidence that corroborates the info from PlayStation Game Size.

This is as sure as we can get about the pre-load dates for MW2 outside of official info.

Interestingly enough, @PlayStationSize lists Warzone 2.0 as an "optional download" pack for Modern Warfare 2. If this is true, then players will be able to preload Warzone 2.0 nearly a month ahead of its launch on November 16. If nothing else, this all but guarantees that we'll be getting datamined Warzone 2.0 info as early as next week. Even if Activision confirmed that Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 will be separate downloads, it's possible Warzone 2 won't be available to pre-load until much closer to its actual release to prevent unwanted leaks.

It's believed that MW2 will be one of the smaller Call of Duty games in terms of file size.

Ultimately, the important thing here is that Modern Warfare 2 is coming out soon.
