Treyarch Caves, Is Bringing Back Nuketown 2025

Treyarch was planning on removing the Nuketown 2025 map from the online playlists, relegating it to just Custom Games and upcoming ‘special events’. But this news didn’t sit well with people who pre-ordered the game before launch solely for access to this map, forcing them say not-so-nice things on Twitter, and Treyarch has responded to this outcry by bringing it back. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It never should have left in the first place.

I can't believe they're surprised that people were upset that content was taken away.
Monstar  +   1105d ago
They are NOT, they just did it for more COD traffic and attention. Bet treyarch feel good about that now....pathetic.

Doing this in the first place made NO sense.

I can't believe it's not butter!

Considering they missed a day, I would say that their statment of Nuketown, 24/7, 365, We Never Close is a bit invalid now. That statement is the one thing that really pissed me off. Why would you mislead people to that extent? That just seems like a blatant slap in the face. They wanted to take it down completely.

IMO they should still have the original playlist because of that statement alone.

Oh well, I guess, I love Hijacked. Which is close enough.

here's a better question. why does anyone care?

it's a stupid, uninteresting map that is plagued by spawn killing.

it just goes to prove that COD players don't have any interest in quality...just easy gratification for meaningless tasks.
XB1_PS4  +   1103d ago
That's not the better question, because that's irrelevant. It doesn't matter why people want it. It's the fact that it was taken away for damn near no reason.
dbjj12088  +   1105d ago
I get that people really loves this map, but in the end it can't stand up to classics like Dust2 or 2fort. I'll stick to the other playlists I guess.
dvfaa  +   1104d ago
OK, have fun playing those maps in COD

Let me know if you are not in the US, I'll try to accommodate you elsewhere.

Glad Treyarch is bringing it back. That didn't take long

I didnt know it was gone in the first place... :)

I have to say all those other maps are so tiny also... I already got bored of them.... it took 1 week..
AiirJordann23  +   1105d ago
I knew it piss off the fans and see they wont buy another cod black ops game give the fans what they want
AzaziL  +   1105d ago
They tried to pull a fast one and screwed up big time. I bet they were planning to shovel it in the next DLC pack to have everyone that pre-ordered to buy it again.

EDIT: Just read their reply, they took it out because it fragments the community yet they'll add it to a small maps moshpit rotation which will introduce the fragmented problem instead of keeping it separate so those that pre-ordered can enjoy it. Still a load of bull.

Also - if it really was their concern that it would fragment the community, why not just give it to everyone? No, either take it away or let those who preordered have it. There is no other solution!
ShadowKingx  +   1105d ago
Well at least there bringing it back, along with a mix of some other maps. Good thing for map voting at least it will get voted everytime.
Soldierone  +   1105d ago
Kinda stupid to advertise the hell out of it, put it on the box, then take it away so early....

"fragments the community" that is going to happen no matter what for one, and two its no different than the stupid 24/7 Metro servers on Battlefield 3.....

It's whatever, I play for fun, so I enjoyed it being there for fun. If you want to compete, go join a league.
Jobesy  +   1105d ago
Agree 100%. For some reason I could play Nuketown over and over and not get bored. The fast paced chaotic action is just addicting. Reminds me of Radec Academy from KZ2, that's another map I would play nonstop. If people want to play it, let them play it.
Jason143  +   1104d ago
agreed cod to me has always meant small chaotic maps. I cant stand the big maps miced with the arcadey game play. yeah, I said arcadey :)
DeadlyFire  +   1104d ago
If it fragments the community then the solution is to release it to everyone.
Tetsujin  +   1104d ago
I can go to Wal Mart right now, buy it new off the shelf, and still get the map that required "pre orders."

I still vote this is a very big, stupid (dick) move and further confirms that Activision is out for $ and bragging rights. I'm so glad I'm NOT part of the crowd that bought it; good game or not this is still 0 excuse on their part.
BuLLDoG909  +   1104d ago
yep, pretty bs move giving a whole map to preorders, a whole fukn map ?, i can see maybe some guns skins or some cosmetic crap... but a fukn map, and nuketown non the less... what a crowd of greedy ass &^&*(^&*^&*^*( )

they should of giving the preorders the map exclusive for a couple weeks or something... way to fragment the community and give us who dont have the map no option to get in .. damn retrded behavior to treat your customers..
first1NFANTRY  +   1105d ago
This makes them look like they got scared by a possible lawsuit and uproar so they put it back lol.

This makes them look like they got scared by a possible lawsuit and uproar so they put it back lol.

Then again maybe that's exactly what they wanted
Mikeyy  +   1105d ago
They gave us "Chaos Moshpit" that isnt just nuketown but other small maps also, wtf..

Why can't we just get nuketown 24/7 back? The way it was.

I was playing last night and was wondering where the hell it went. Now I know. Seems stupid they would have removed it it in the first place, what would they even gain by that?
Jason143  +   1104d ago
bangs head against wall. lol i was in same boat. I was like umm where did it go? I didnt even want to play at that point
NeXXXuS  +   1104d ago
They would gain more unneeded attention.
sitharrefus  +   1104d ago
BS the map is the only reason i bought it..... Such a good map that never gets boring....
Axonometri  +   1104d ago
I understand a lot of the decisions Dev's make in some of these cases but this was one of the most irresponsible moves I've seen. I think number of sales has gone to authoritative attitude. Licensed software or not, this is not American.

We need our traditional sensibilities back! This is another example of how our countries origins are slipping away. It is not a good thing.
momthemeatloaf  +   1104d ago
Nuke town is so garbage so is hijacked, they're just aesthetically cool looking and mindless no skill run and gun. Terrible spawning and killstreaks galore. Turbine is one of the couple good maps in the game. The rest are terribly bad
Conquerbeard  +   1104d ago
Well, this was a lovely spot of retardation.
FarCryLover182  +   1104d ago
My feelings as to what happened:

A higher up at Activision noticed that over 300k people are in that playlist at any given time and they thought that it might hinder DLC sales since everyone likes that map and would not buy the DLC since they are fine playing that 24/7.

Just my hunch.
spike  +   1104d ago
I just got the game today, so I haven't been able to play this level. Still like Halo 4 better. Bought Halo 4 yesterday and Black Ops 2 today.
insomniacgamer  +   1104d ago
How about they "cave" in on the idea of adding more than 4 pathetic hardcore modes...
FITgamer  +   1104d ago
Yeah i could give 2 shits about nuketown 2025, hardcore players got robbed. CTF is joke. Nothing, but spawn camping. Give me back my hardcore Dom and KC.
NYC_Gamer  +   1103d ago
They shouldn't have took away the map in the first place
