The first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II free multiplayer weekend is said to start next month.
This info comes from reputable leaker Tom Henderson via Insider-Gaming, who writes that he has heard from sources that Activision plans to kick off the first multiplayer weekend for Modern Warfare II on December 15 – a little more than three weeks from now. In addition, it has been said that the game’s Season 1 mid-season update will release a day before that on December 14. The free multiplayer weekend will reportedly run through December 19.
No further details about this first free weekend were provided, but Henderson does write that sources have also said that Activision is planning to release a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on December 6. Whether this rumored patch will add new content is unknown at this point.
As always with these kinds of rumors, take the information above with a pinch of salt for now. On the other hand, Henderson has quite the track record when it comes to leaks, especially those related to Call of Duty.
