Okay, so here's how it was supposed to work:
The popular Nuketown 2025 map in Call of Duty: Black Ops II was going to be available 24/7 throughout this past Double XP weekend. The map was part of a pre-order exclusive and after this weekend, it was going to go bye-bye. Simple, yes?
But after Treyarch took down the Nuketown 2025 playlist early Monday morning, everyone sort of freaked out…even though they had to know it was coming. Initially, studio design director David Vonderhaar posted up the following Tweet:
"Double XP weekend is official [sic] over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. Right? Don't kill the messenger."
Oh, but the fans did want to kill the messenger, and there was a massive outcry for the map to return to the public playlist. So it didn't take long for Vonderhaar to acquiesce and bring the map back. It's now in a new playlist called Chaos Moshpit but for the record, it's not available constantly. Hopefully, this will be enough to appease the CoD followers, who apparently really like Nuketown.
