It feels like only yesterday Infinity Ward was talking up the mysterious first Modern Warfare 2 downloadable map pa–oh, that totally was yesterday. Huh, that was quick! The marketing division has created an informative site about “mapathy,” an all-too-real medical condition affecting millions of gamers.
They say the cure is coming to Xbox LIVE on March 30, which would mean an April release for PlayStation 3 and PC since Microsoft acquired a full month of exclusivity for the add-on. The real question, at least in my mind, is whether or not we’ll see video/pictures of the maps during GDC.
Either way, the wait shouldn’t be too painful. As wrapped up in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as I am, I wouldn’t mind getting back into Modern Warfare 2, if only to play new content from time to time.
