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.
