Activision Pulls Nuketown 2025 Map From Black Ops II Servers

Following the issues that have plagued Call of Duty: Black Ops since it released, Activision is placing themselves in a very hot seat it looks like. The Double XP Weekend event for the game’s multiplayer mode officially ended yesterday, and since then it looks like the Nuketown 2025 multiplayer map has been pulled from the game’s servers entirely. Just last week players were having issues accessing the map, and after an update they’ve found the map to be gone completely.

Activision did announce that players who pre-ordered the game would get the redesigned version of the map to play on, and that part of their promotion remained true. Something that did happen, however, is that it seems each copy of the game, pre-ordered or not, came with the ability to play the map. There was no other word in the promotion that anything would be deleted or revoked, which is exactly what happened. Activision has taken the map away from players, and according to a tweet from Game Design Director David Vonderhaar, it appears the map will be gone for good.

In the tweet Vonderhaar stated, “Double XP weekend is official[ly] over. That means Nuketown 2025/24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don’t kill the messenger. +”

Players, myself included, assumed that the Nuketown 2025 map would be a fixed feature and could be accessed whenever. This hasn’t become the case and plenty of fans are aggravated by the deal. If you’re wondering where your map has gone, this is the answer to your questions. Well, save for the fact that we don’t really know why Activision pulled the data. That is something even we’re still waiting to hear.
