Modern Warfare 2 – These maps are confirmed so far
Which maps have been officially confirmed so far? So far, a total of five maps have been announced for Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer. The maps “Grand Prix”, “Farm 18” and “Museum” are apparently all intended for the classic 6v6 mode, while “Sariff Bay” and “Sa’id” are more of the so-called battle maps.
- Grand Prix
- farm 18
- Sariff Bay
While “Grand Prix” lets you carry out the battles on a track for car racing, “Farm 18” offers a factory area. “Museum” is strongly reminiscent of past Call of Duty maps and lets you fight in southern Europe. “Sa’id” will have you fighting in tight spaces and houses and in “Sariff Bay” the name says it all: the setting is a harbor area by the water.
First pictures of the new maps: In the meantime there is even first image material that has been published by the developers and shows a few of the new maps very clearly. The first map “Grand Prix” shows the track, the pit lanes including an area in which a Ferris wheel can also be seen. The map will also be playable in the open beta.
The second map that Infinity Ward presented in a Twitter post is called “Farm 18”. In the video, which the publisher published via TikTok and Twitter, various map designers have their say and talk about the creation process behind a new map of Modern Warfare 2. “Farm 18” depicts a cement factory and offers many strategic possibilities to get into the to fight.
What is known about the general design of the maps? All in all, the maps of Modern Warfare 2 should become more asymmetrical, smaller and, above all, more compact, in order to enable more intensive and exciting battles. More compact maps also ensure a significantly higher game speed, which characterizes Call of Duty overall. According to an insider, developer Infinity Ward is also using the most popular maps from the predecessor “Modern Warfare” (2019) as a blueprint for new maps.
Modern Warfare 2 – These maps became known through a leak
Which maps are there? Even if we already know more about other maps from a leak, here’s another note that leaks, as always, are unsecured information that you should use with caution or be skeptical about. These maps were leaked through loading screens apparently found in the alpha version of Warzone-Mobile. It is not yet clear in which game modes these maps will be used, if they will be part of Modern Warfare 2 at all.
When will multiplayer finally be revealed? Infinity Ward’s Twitter page has already announced the date for a livestream event called Call of Duty Next. Then, on September 15, 2022, multiplayer finally seems to be fully revealed. In addition, the event is apparently also about the future of “Call of Duty: Warzone” and “Warzone Mobile”. Maybe then it will finally be clarified whether the hated “Blooming” from Call of Duty Vanguard will return to Modern Warfare 2, which fans are already fearing.
