Eurogamer.net - Modern Warfare 2 has the same phone number problem as Overwatch 2


Recommended Posts


Those who are going to be diving into Modern Warfare 2 via PC on its launch will face the same problem as those going into Blizzard's recently released Overwatch 2 - you will need to link a phone number to access the game, and mobile phones with a prepaid plan "may not work".

If you head on over to the phone notifications page on the Battle.net support site, you will see the text stating that those playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, or those with "newly created Overwatch 2 accounts, and newly created Call of Duty: Modern Warfare accounts", will be required to add a phone number to access the game.

The page continues: "Adding a phone number will allow Blizzard Entertainment to send you notifications when important changes are made to your account. Any mobile phone in a supported country with a data plan, and that is not prepaid or a VOIP number, can be used with this service" (thanks, PCGamer).
