Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer will retain the classic maps of its 2009 predecessor. A well-known insider recently found out.

Santa Monica, California – For many Call of Duty fans, the period around 2009 and the original Modern Warfare 2 is still considered the golden age of the series. From the gameplay to the unlocks to the maps, many see the highlight of CoD there – and at least the maps could soon experience a renaissance. As a well-known CoD insider claims to have found out, the maps from the original MW2 should also appear in this year’s release of Activision and Infinity Ward – only fans will have to be patient for that.

Modern Warfare 2: Insider expects all original MW2 maps to be released

Which maps should come? Among fans, the collection of maps that came with the 2009 release of Modern Warfare 2 is considered the best in the map design series. Not only do the maps play cleverly with the typical 3-way structure of CoD maps, they all also have absolute recognition value for all players who have only played them once.

Exactly this enjoyment could also be granted to fans in the new Modern Warfare 2. TheGhostofHope, a well-known insider on all things Call of Duty, recently revealed updates on the maps Twitter. There it was said by a “trusted source” that Infinity Ward wanted to include all, or at least almost all of the maps from MW2 (2009) in the new game, in addition to the already known multiplayer maps from Modern Warfare 2. So these maps would be included in the game come:

  • Afghan
  • Derail
  • Estate
  • favela
  • high rise
  • invasion
  • Karachi
  • Quarry
  • rundown
  • Rust
  • Scrapyard
  • Skidrow
  • subbase
  • terminal

With which weapons you will rivet yourself in these maps is already known in part from a leak on the weapons of Modern Warfare 2. So far, however, it is still questionable which maps will make the leap into the current generation of consoles and which will remain behind. Also, the release date isn’t fixed yet, but TheGhostOfHope gives a rough estimate.

Modern Warfare 2: Maps from CoD classics could be a long time coming

When should the maps appear? The insider states that the maps should appear in Modern Warfare 2’s post-launch window. So you don’t have to count on the cards when the game is released. Most likely, TheGhostOfHope finds a release in the second year after release. Unfortunately, this means for all fans that they will have to wait until the end of 2023 at least to be able to play their old favorite maps in a new guise. If you don’t want to wait that long, you can also use Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019).

Which maps are already playable in MW (2019)? In the last Call of Duty developed by Infinity Ward, some classic maps from the old Modern Warfare 2 are already appearing. So fans can already play Rust and Scrapyard there, which were also added there in the seasons after the release of the game. To pass the time until the release of MW2, or the old maps later in the next year, that must be enough for now.
