Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Showcase and Beta Next Month

During the wrap up of the just-concluded Call of Duty League Championship Weekend, Activision announced plans for Call of Duty: Next, a franchise showcase that will take place on September 15th. This will feature developer Infinity Ward and will offer "robust information drops detailing innovations, live gameplay and a whole lot more" about the future of the Call of Duty series. This will feature details on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (including a full multiplayer reveal), the next Call of Duty: Warzone, and the mobile version of Call of Duty: Warzone (aka Project Aurora). The announcement also details plans for two beta weekends in September. The second one includes PC, so here's a new trailer along with details on that:
The second beta weekend is available on all console platforms and PC, featuring Crossplay, allowing players to party up with their friends and the greater community, no matter what hardware they play on.
