Pre-Order to Play Early
If you pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and you buy it digitally, you will be able to play early -- or at least before October 25th for some users.
Microsoft says that the digital edition is available to pre-load and that some regions will be able to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on October 24th at 6 PM.
We're waiting to find out the exact details, but it could be a 9 PM eastern October 24th release which will make it easier to get physical copies at Best Buy and GameStop.
This translates into a 6 PM Pacific release time on disk and digital for many users. We saw this on several releases in 2018, and it makes sense for this trend to continue with Modern Warfare.
