Beta testing dates:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released October 25, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Here’s what we know:
Modern Warfare will ditch the annual pass model, delivering free maps, content, and post-launch events to all players. We don’t know what the new model will look like, but the old one offered an average of four paid map packs for each game. There still might be other kinds of paid content in this game, but Activision isn’t saying just yet.
The game will feature cross-play support between PC and consoles. Kotaku asked Activision for clarification on whether or not this means Xbox One or PS4 players could play together, but no information is available at this time. The PC version is exclusive to Battle.net

September 19-20 - PC, Xbox One pre-order beta, PS4 open beta

To clarity, this is neither a prequel or a sequel to Modern Warfare (CoD 4), but rather a reboot with some of the same characters. There will be a campaign, significantly more game modes. Battle royal has not been announced.
August 1st MP reveal update:
So as many know the MP has been revealed as of today. I'm going to update the OP with this information and more as we receive more news.
The main changes that intrigued me would be the pick 10 system's death everybody will have 5 weapon attachments per primary and secondary weapon, 3 perks, 1 tactical and 1 lethal option along with a gun perk(s?). 60 attachments for certain weapons. No mini-map in core without using a UAV killstreak.
