Activision have pulled Nuketown 2025 from the Black Ops 2 playlists, where it’ll be returning for special events. The maps massive popularity has sparked a fan backlash, believing that Activision have betrayed loyal fans who pre-ordered the game.
The map is still currently available in Custom Games, for those who need to get their fix of the ‘home of the future’. Downloading Nuketown was a prerequisite to enjoy this weekend’s double XP launch and the map has already caused issues for PlayStation 3 users attempting to download the downloadable content.
I would expect Activision to make a U-turn on this judgment pretty quickly, but until then multiplayer won’t be the same unless mannequins are watching me.
