The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Open Beta has been a great source of entertainment for the last two weekends, but what time does the MW3 Beta end?
If you’ve been sinking countless hours into the MW3 Beta these last couple of weeks, you’re not alone. Thousands of Call of Duty fans have enjoyed diving in and experiencing classic Modern Warfare maps once again – but all good things must come to an end.
Here’s when we have to say goodbye to the Beta:

Will the MW3 Beta Be Extended?
No, it does not seem likely that the MW3 Beta will be extended. The Beta is now offline and there has been no word from Activision or Sledgehammer Games regarding extending it.
In fact, Sledgehammer recently confirmed that we’re in the ‘last full day’ of the MW3 Beta, which could spell bad news for those hoping for an extension.
However, Call of Duty Betas in recent years have almost always been extended.
The Black Ops Cold War Beta got extended by 24 hours as a reward for fans completing the ARG ‘Pawn Takes Pawn’.
The following year, Vanguard saw a similar extension, giving players a whopping 48 hours of extra playtime. It’s worth noting that this title was developed by Sledgehammer Games, just like MW3 2023!
But while last year’s MW2 Beta was extended, it was only by two hours from 10 AM PT / 12 PM ET to 12 PM PT / 2 PM ET.
We’ll update this article if any official extension is announced.
