Nuketown 2025 Map Returned to Call of Duty Black: Ops 2

Last night Treyarch decided to pull the Nuketown 2025 map from the roster following the conclusion of the double XP weekend. This was a not a popular decision as far as the community were concerned.

The update on Twitter from Treyarch’s design director David Vonderhaar read:

Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don’t kill the messenger.

“Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events. You can always play it with your friends in Custom Games.”

The Nuketown 2025 map was part of the pre-order package and it was never made clear that it would be yanked at any point and it wasn’t exactly living up to it’s tagline of 24/7.

After some internal discussions another Tweet appeared:

You killed the messenger, but I still fight for the users. RT to #bringbackNuketown2025 and we will add to a small maps moshpit.

Finally, Activision and Treyarch relented this morning after the community outcry and they created the  new “Chaos Moshpit” playlist which now includes the Nuketown 2025 map.

Thanks Venturebeat

    Pretty bloody cheeky of them to ask the public to promote their game for nothing in order to get back the pre-order bonus, arseholes.
