Activision has confirmed that there will be no demo for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on any platform, either public or private. Likewise, there'll be absolutely no beta of the game either.

The confirmation came via the official Infinity Ward twitter, which claimed that the entire development team was focused on getting the game ready to ship.

"No plan for a Demo before launch," the team tweeted. "The entire team is focused on polish all the way up to ship of the full game."

The announcement will likely come as a disappointment to many, since the original Modern Warfare had an incredibly popular demo that helped increase awareness about the game. Then again, Modern Warfare had to prove that it was distinct from the previous games in the series, whereas the hype for Modern Warfare 2 is so massive that a demo likely wouldn't help much.

The lack of a demo might pose a problem to some fans however, especially if they're wondering if the game can possibly be worth the inflated £55 GBP price.

As games and gaming hardware continue to rise in price and budgets, we're personally of the opinion that more games should have demos - not less. Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
