Black Ops II pulls Nuketown 2025 map from playlist

See also

A remake of the popular Nuketown map from the original Black Ops was offered as a pre-order bonus for Call of Duty: Black Ops II on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The map didn't even last a week in the multiplayer rotation though as Treyarch pulled it Monday.

"Double XP weekend is official over," game director David Vonderhaar wrote on Twitter. "That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don't kill the messenger."

This means that the only way to play the Nuketown 2025 map now is in custom games until Treyarch decides to bring it back. Will they bring it back though and is so, when?

"Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events," Vonderhaar continued.

When asked if the map will ever show up in the regular playlists, Vonderhaar said, "Yeah. Probably eventually. We are talking that over internally."

Taking Nuketown 2025 out of the playlist rotation less than a week after Black Ops II has understandably upset a large number of players already. Update: Some of whom have already started a petition to bring the map back. It's certainly a strange move and one that will be remembered as one of the great negative pre-order experiences.

Update 2: The Activision support page for Call of Duty: Black Ops II added the following.

As of 11/19/12, Nuketown 2025 has been removed from the active Black Ops II Playlists and will return at a later date. Keep an eye out for more information. We hope you enjoyed the Double XP Nuketown 2025 Weekend!

Update 3: It looks like Treyarch will bring Nuketown 2025 back in some form following the outcry from upset players.
