Fans who have been waiting for the official release of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II" can get their hands on the game, ahead of its official release in September through Beta tests, said an industry insider who offered the game's Beta release schedule.

Last month, gamers noticed that when they pre-order "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II" on Amazon, it comes with the Applicable Promotions note giving away the game's Open Beta date, Aug. 15, provided that the game is shipped and sold by the e-commerce company. However, an industry insider with a history of accurate leaks and goes by the name Ralph Valve claimed a different Beta schedule.

They noted that the schedule from Amazon is reserved for the game's promotions, saying, "August serves for Multiplayer reveals, events, and information. Offering an exclusive look at gameplay from Modern Warfare II’s more traditional game modes, new systems of play, and a few surprises." Ralph Valve clarified that "Activision has instead apportioned the two-week Beta for mid-to-late September, debuting first on PS4 and PS5, then to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC and Steam PC the following week."
