Last week Activision dropped what was most likely Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s final DLC. The Season Two: Reloaded DLC included, without fanfare, three map packs – a revamped version of the original trilogy’s Killhouse, the Al-Raab Airbase, and gunfight map Drainage. Many considered it a final gift from Activision and Infinity Ward to fans and played them in earnest.
However, in a bizarre twist, both the Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase maps, which were only available to play in private matches in the first place, were recently pulled from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. As in simply gone from the list of maps players can select in custom games.
This currently leaves Killhouse, which was added to multiplayer, as the remaining map of the three, and its 24/7 Mosh Pit playlist. No statement has been released from either Activision or Infinity Ward regarding the move, just as there was no announcement of the maps’ original inclusion.
This isn’t the only time content has been silently released and then subsequently pulled from Modern Warfare, either. Previously players had spotted the Sparks Operator Bundle in the store, which included the unreleased Sykov pistol. Infinity Ward eventually took the bundle back out.
