Modern Warfare 2 player feedback may lead to more map packs

During a recent earnings conference call, Activision publishing CEO Mike Griffith said that the publisher is only planning to do two unique map packs for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Both of which will be timed Xbox 360 exclusives. We thought it an odd decision that wouldn’t stick in our report. Looks like it’s not sticking.

MTV Multiplayer spoke with Infinity Ward’s community manager Robert Bowling via e-mail about Griffith’s remark.  Bowling said that IW is committed to supporting the game, and if the community wants more content, they’ll deliver more than just two map packs.

“As far as DLC goes,” Bowling said, “we love it and plan to support Modern Warfare 2 heavily with post-launch support. We’ve confirmed we’ll be doing AT LEAST two map packs which were announced at E3 as a timed exclusive for Xbox 360.

“The fact that we confirmed at least two map packs doesn’t mean there won’t be more; honestly we plan on shaping our DLC based on community feedback from the full game, and first two DLC map packs. Therefore, the community will really determine what comes after that.”

So it’s up to you guys, the players. Find Infinity Ward’s car and stop the New Order. And remember … music is a weapon.
