Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 released in October 2022, and with Microsoft soon to acquire Activision Blizzard, many are wondering if Modern Warfare 2 will be coming to Xbox Game Pass. Here’s everything you need to know.

Will Modern Warfare 2 be on Xbox Game Pass?

Unfortunately, Modern Warfare will not be on Xbox Game Pass. Both Activision Blizzard and Modern Warfare 2 in general have a marketing partnership with PlayStation and there are no plans to change that.

There’s no telling if it will end up being on Xbox Game Pass over time but it will not be added to the service for the foreseeable future.

That partnership is likely on its last renewal if the Microsoft purchase does get approved, which would leave plenty of room for the Xbox leads to capitalize on the popularity of Game Pass to negotiate their own special deal in the future.
