Activision Pulls Nuketown 2025 Map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 24...

Having been advertised as a pre-order incentive for the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Activision has recently pulled out the Nuketown 2025 map from the 24/7 rotation with Treyarch game design director David Vonderhaar stating via Twitter that the "double XP weekend is over. That means Nuketown 2025/24-7 is over."

Players who pre-ordered the Call of Duty title were given access to a Double XP weekend and the Nuketown 2025 map, however it wasn't stated whether it would be temporary or not which led to the belief that it was a permanent map for the rotation. A new tweet by Vonderhaar has confirmed that the map will be back in for special events and is currently available in all other game modes and in custom matches with friends.

What a load of nonsense. The game has been broken in Australia since launch. With most people having to play in laggy US servers. Now they take away part of the pre-order bonus?

Available in all other modes? Like what?

I could never find the option and still can't for in Zombies. None of my friends have BO2 for custom matches. So that's a bust.

It can't be in normal map rotation as not everyone has it.

This is a massive slap in the face to fans. One I am sure is purely because it was more popular than their new maps.

Yeah I don't exactly want to be abused when I kill someone in planetside 2. That's 1 good thing about CoD, it keeps all the kids busy while us real men play better games.

It's a s*** map anyway. I played some S&D on it yesterday and that's probably one of the better modes and it's still s***.

Hehe, "Back by popular demand", they say that like they're doing something special for people and not just delivering on what they already promised to do.

Its f***ed up that there seems to be zero legal requirement to deliver in the games industry - litigation is not what im talking about, more like the ACCC spanking their asses for being pricks to their customers.

Yeah it's insane that games get away with such nonsense. Whether it's overselling and basically lying as to what the product is. Or launching something completely buggy and substandard.

Even though I love the game, Battlefield 3 was one of the worst. They over sold on everything. It's a good game but was advertised as everything we wanted. PC lead platform, unparalleled destruction, the biggest maps ever and so forth.

Game comes out, everyone goes, "this isn't what we were told" and DICE goes... "yeah we ditched all that a long time ago and focused on consoles."

Apparently that's perfectly fine to do.
