Treyarch & Activision: Proven to Be Filthy Liars as Nuketown 2025 is Removed from Black Ops 2

“Pre-Order Call of DUty: Black Ops 2 and get exclusive access to the Nuketown 2025 map!”

Yeah, but what they conveniently forgot to mention was that the map was available LAUNCH WEEKEND ONLY. Yeah. Go log into BLOPS 2 now and try to find Nuketown. Oh that’s right, you can’t, because Activision PULLED IT.

From the Examiner:

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. It’s certainly a strange move and one that will be remembered as one of the great pre-order negative experiences.

I think this is the dictionary definition of the sin of omission.

    • Yeah, the fact that they conveniently forgot to mention that Nuketown was only playable for the first weekend following the game’s release is utterly ridiculous. I can’t think of any of the promotion material that ever mentioned that.
