CoD: Modern Warfare 3 Beta Will Be On PlayStation First - Report

This could be the last time if Microsoft's acquisition goes through.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's beta will be available to PlayStation players first, according to a video that's been discovered.

This timed exclusivity agreement on PlayStation is reportedly based on a video from Sony's Arabic YouTube channel that states the beta will be on that platform at least five days before any other platform receives it. Additionally, you must preorder the game in order to get access to the early beta.

Sony has a history of working with Activision Blizzard on Call of Duty, including PlayStation getting early access to last year's Modern Warfare 2 beta, as well as 2021's Call of Duty: Vanguard. Sony also got exclusive early access to 2020's Black Ops Cold War and 2019's Modern Warfare betas.

It's unclear whether Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard will affect this trend, should it go through, as Sony's contract with Activision Blizzard on Call of Duty ends with this year's entry.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was officially teased last week and is set to launch on November 10 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Activision Blizzard confirmed that it'll be a premium game costing $70, and its full reveal will take place inside Warzone on August 17.
