So far, Modern Warfare 2 still has the hardcore mode. But now there is a date when this fact will change.

Update from October 31, 9:30 a.m.: Activision has now announced the release date of the missing hardcore mode. Tier 1 (the new HC name) will only come in Season 1 of MW2 and Warzone 2. The exact date is November 16, 2022.

Original message: Santa Monica, California – With the launch of Modern Warfare 2, the gates to the latest Call of Duty are now open. However, some players immediately notice that something is missing: the hardcore mode (or “Tier 1” as Activision and Infinity Ward now call it). On Twitter, many frustrated MW2 fans commented on the HC mode and demanded an explanation from the developer.

Fans are stunned: Especially because Infinity Ward the CoD fans with “stay frosty(in German: “Keep calm” or “Keep a cool head”) put off, the announcement received criticism. Some fans feel cheated and are demanding their money back from the Santa Monica developer. “How about you guys keep calm and give me back my 100 bucks until it’s out. CoD has never had a hardcore mode at launch”, wrote an angry fan on Twitter. The developer is unlikely to follow up on the demands, so fans have no choice but to wait for HC mode.
