Activision planning just two map packs for Modern Warfare 2

During the recent Activision-Blizzard conference call, Activision publishing CEO Mike Griffith revealed that the publisher is planning to release a mere two map packs for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

“We plan to launch two map packs for this title,” Griffith said.

At Microsoft’s E3 2009 press conference, it was revealed that Xbox 360 owners would be getting these two Modern Warfare 2 map packs first. While we doubt Activision’s plans won’t change (making Call of Duty DLC is like printing money), it’s interesting that Microsoft might have secured a timed exclusive for the entirety of the content that may be offered for the title.

Especially with this knowledge, the exclusivity thing — however long it lasts — seems like a real bummer for PlayStation 3 equipped MW fans. Think about it this way: at least you can get in on the night-vision action. That counts for something.
