Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward has fully unveiled its Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2.0 roadmap for Season 2, and it's safe to say the info drop is proving somewhat controversial. While Warzone 2.0 players seem fairly satisfied with what's coming during the game's second season, MW2 multiplayer fans are starting to feel a little frustrated.
Fan frustration spawns from the fact that, so far, there haven't been any brand-new 6v6 multiplayer maps for Modern Warfare 2 yet, and that trend continues into Season 2. The game's first season delivered two remakes with 'Shipment' and 'Shoothouse', while the second season is bringing another remake, 'Dome', and a returning beta map with 'Valderas Museum' - the latter of which was supposed to be a base game map before its release was delayed.
There's plenty of other content crammed into this roadmap for Warzone 2.0, and 'Ground War' players, but fresh standard multiplayer content is a little thin on the ground - and players are making that point known:
It's worth remembering that Warzone 2.0 is a free-to-play game, with MW2's $70 price point likely adding to growing fan frustration about the lack of meaningful post-launch content for multiplayer users.
While we think the reaction is perhaps a little overblown — good map remakes are always welcome and there are still new weapons etc. included here — we have to agree that the full-priced game should be getting as much of a focus as Warzone 2.0.
Hopefully the multiplayer content pipeline picks up as the game moves along in 2023. Failing that, it looks like another CoD game may actually launch this year, if you're already looking forward to what's next! Who'd have known?
