Mark Rubin of Infinity Ward has all but confirmed that classic Call of Duty maps from the original Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, could be heading to Modern Warfare 3. The Call of Duty community recently noticed that two maps were accidentially listed in the Private Match mode: “Terminal” and “Shipbreaker”. The new maps have since been removed, but Rubin called the accidental leak “unfortunate”.
Rubin claims that he is pushing to get the Terminal map to be “released soon”. Much like the Face-Off mode and maps, this content may be heading to Call of Duty players for the always enjoyable price of free. That is, IF it ends up being released at all.
Most of what has been confirmed by Rubin has occured via Twitter, and Activision has made no official statement on whether or not the classic maps would return. This isn’t the first we’ve heard of free Classic maps in Modern Warfare 3. Earlier this year, when Robert Bowling was still with Activision he expressed his beliefs that older maps should be free downloadable content for the fans.
Just two days ago, Xbox 360 players got their latest round of Call of Duty: Elite content with new Face-Off and Spec-Ops maps. Just yesterday, Infinity Ward started asking their Facebook fans what their favorite maps from old Call of Duty titles are, and it could signal some classic DLC on the way.
