Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 kicked off its multiplayer modes on October 28. However, there have been rumors that MW2 would be getting ranked play modes, which are currently not found in the game. When are players expecting them to arrive? Here’s everything you need to know about the Modern Warfare 2 ranked play release date rumors.
When is the Modern Warfare 2 ranked play release date?
Infinity Ward and Activision have confirmed that the MW2 ranked play release date will be in 2023. Insiders had claimed the release date was expected to coincide with the Call of Duty League (CDL) launch at the start of Season 1 on November 16. The League is launching earlier than its usual January window, although it’s uncertain why this is the case.
The Modern Warfare 2 ranked play modes are believed to be in development at Treyarch. This implies they may use the same structure as Call of Duty: Vanguard “with a few tweaks“. Many are hoping they would be able to use the ranked modes to practice playing the game using the same rules as the CDL. However, Infinity Ward is yet to confirm whether there will be ranked play modes in MW2.
