Nuketown 2025 playlist pulled from Black Ops II (Update)

I hope you like custom games

[Update: Treyarch has responded by creating a new playlist called Chaos Moshpit that has Nuketown 2025 in its rotation. What a silly situation.]

Treyarch has removed the multiplayer playlist containing the Nuketown 2025 map that was used as a pre-order bonus for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. As a result, those who "own" the map and would like to play it will have to resort to running a custom game, meaning no public matchmaking with experience points.

Game design director David Vonderhaar announced the move, tweeting that "Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don't kill the messenger." Continuing in a second tweet: "Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events. You can always play it with your friends in Custom Games."

Understandably, some players feel misled -- rightfully so, in my opinion. I'm not entirely sure what Treyarch or Activision had to gain from this decision that was worth risking public outcry, even if only a minority of Black Ops II players become involved. Let's hope they add the map to a public playlist before long. That seems like a possibility.

Haha, what?
Who does he think he is? Lindsay Lohan?
The new Zombies map sounds pretty good
Sure, why not?
Four multiplayer maps plus another zombies level
More like lukewarm revenge
Treyarch is celebrating the impending release of the Vengeance DLC pack
Third DLC pack out first on Xbox 360 next month
Plus double XP on all platforms
Not Double XP proper, which is confusing
