Activision have removed the popular Nuketown 2025 map from Black Ops 2 playlists and unsurprisingly have been met with a torrent of outrage from Call Of Duty players.

Treyarch game designer David Vonderhaar tweeted that “Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don’t kill the messenger” before informing fans that “Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events. You can always play it with your friends in Custom Games.”

For everyone who pre-ordered Black Ops 2 to secure the Nuketown 2025 map, described in-game as the map that runs “24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, we never close”, it’s a huge slap in the face. Even more so for PS3 users who have faced issues with attempting to redeem their Nuketown 2025 DLC code since the titles launch on November 13th.

At no point during Activision’s promotion of the Nuketown 2025 pre-order bonus did they mention that the popular Black Ops map, re-imagined in a 60’s depiction of the “Model Home of the Future”, would only be available for a limited amount of time. There is a disclaimer on the Call Of Duty website that players will need to download Nuketown 2025 to access to Double XP Launch Weekend but nothing regarding it’s limited appearance.

As for the fate of Nuketown 2025, when asked if the map would be returning to regular playlists, Vondehaar responded with “Yea. Probably eventually. We are talking that over internally.” For now at least, players will be confined to enjoying the joys of Nuketown 2025 in custom games.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 is out now for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

What a bunch of blood sucking idiots, I've been enjoying this map all weekend.. And I actually hated it all together in the first instalment.. To think that they have deliberately took it off the playlist is a complete joke.. I mean, 24/7 might seem a bit much don't you think? Well in map terms, Nuketown 2025 is the way forward to ranking up helping you gain xp faster just from the actual size of this map, that gives you more kills 3 times as fast (at average I should say) as on a regular map e.g. Raid.. It's fast paced and down right entertaining seeing frags being thrown everywhere and bombardments of scorestreaks flying in from everywhere. As a long time fan of Cod and a long time Playstation gamer, I think this is a terrible move from these nobs (pardon) and they should reapply it to the game as soon as possible.. Either in a 24/7 mode, or just the multiplayer itself. because i paid for this thing !! For the time being, ill be playing on the campaign.. Haha (y)
