No pre-release demo planned for Modern Warfare 2

Getting a feel for the retail version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 before it releases is going to be a tall order, even for industrious folk. Earlier this weekend, developer Infinity Ward made it clear that it has zero plans for a pre-release demo in a tweet now being read around the world. “No plan for a demo before launch,” the studio told a fan asking about a demo. And why not? Polish concerns. “The entire team is focused on polish all the way up to ship of the full game,“ the studio continued in the tweet.

A multiplayer beta, for that matter, isn’t going to happen either. Infinity Ward has made that clear on several different occasions, but we like re-iterating it because it hurts people in profound ways.

But you weren’t going to bother with a silly demo, right?
