With the upcoming GamesCom 2009, people are expecting Infinity Ward to announce the beta for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. All the rumours and speculations can now be put to rest, as Robert Bowling has debunked the beta (for now?)
There will be no beta announcement at Games Convention in Germany. The only reason I've decided not to attend is due to the amount of work I'd like to get done here at the studio, things that would have been delayed even further if I was out of the country for a week.
Things like the frequency at which we release multiplayer videos, more screenshots for press, and planning for some upcoming events. It remains to be seen if there will be a beta at some point. The previous Modern Warfare game, Call of Duty 4, had an exclusive multiplayer beta on the Xbox 360.
