Modern Warfare 2’s concurrent players : On the first day of its launch on Steam, Modern Warfare 2 has already had almost 110,000 concurrent players during its beta test.
While this represents only a fraction of the player base – the beta is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X users, as well – it is an indication of the game’s interest, and illustrates just how many people are eager to play the shooter before its formal release on October 28, 2022.
In interesting news, its all-time concurrent player peak of almost 110,000 players – the official number is 109,425 – is higher than that of FIFA 22, Resident Evil Village, and Battlefield 2042 combined: not bad for a game that has not yet been released.
Missed the first beta test and wondering if the hype is true? That is fine with me. The countdown to the next Modern Warfare 2 beta has ended, and the second test launched on Thursday, September 22.
However, not everyone is able to participate. In addition to being an open beta test for PS5 and PS4 owners – just download it from the PlayStation Store – Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC players can only participate if they have purchased Modern Warfare 2.
It has not been a perfect beta, however, and sometimes Modern Warfare 2 beta crashes and error codes are causing some problems currently, especially on PCs and Xboxes. Please refer to our Modern Warfare 2 beta crashing and error fixes guide if you are experiencing difficulties. As well, we are monitoring whether or not the Modern Warfare 2 servers are down, so please check back if you continue to experience problems.
While you wait for Modern Warfare 2, you can play a number of big games from our upcoming PS5 and upcoming Xbox Series X lists.
