Black Ops II pulls Nuketown 2025 map from playlist

XMNR: 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 (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

If gamers weren't so lazy, there could/should be a lawsuit. False/misleading advertising.

I'm disgusted. I bet a big reason why people even pre-ordered and didn't wait for a price drop was for Nuketown, they have no right to just pull it like that.

What the heck, I thought it would stay. I didn't know it was a double XP thing only.

too much color...so unrealistic.

I don't think the point of Call of Duty is to be "realistic"...

Literally the only reason I pre-ordered. And I've been so busy I barely even got a chance to play the game yet. I feel like I just got jipped out of a large chunk of value Black Ops 2 held in my eyes.

Things I learned from Black Ops 2:

1) Never preorder a game from Treyarch.

2) Never buy a game from Treyarch.

3) People can take six rounds to the chest without flinching and stab you to death from 10 feet away.

Change the first two from Treyarch to Activision and you have a point.

If you gamers weren't so lazy you would be able o sue them for selling a broken product, false advertisement and for not advising that the map was for "special reasons"

Didn't even get to play on it once....

Yea I thought it would be there forever, I play hardcore only (because when I shoot people i think they should die without using a full clip.) and I seen they had only core so I figured that when 2x xp was over it would be available like the others. To see it was gone is majorly fucked up. Pardon my language but there is no other way to put it.

I had no idea this was for the double XP they could have at least said so. Funny how much they advertised it then pulled it from multiplayer even stated that the only way to get the map was thru pre-order so alot of people pre-ordered for the map smh f**king bulls**t

Yeah, they did nothing to advertise that Nuketown 2025 would only be available for a limited time.
AiirJordann23  +   1053d ago
They didn't even announce douple XP weekend until later on in October I think... But still it isn't right the pre order item is suppose the be the gamers to keep as a thanks for pre ordering its like shutting down the hitman sniper challenge after the game come out or confiscating the gtav posters after the release its stupidly crazy I still smh

I can't wait to buy the map packs when they come out next year and play them for 6 days before they are pulled. /s

this is a simple mixup between developer and publisher. activision advertised for the nuketown map for all preorders. activision also controls dlc, which is why nuketown zombies will be available for dl in december.

although i don't understand why treyarch doesn't just release the map, activision is the one to blame
