Earlier this week, Treyarch removed Nuketown 2025 from the regular playlists in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. This was a surprising decision, as nothing was previously mentioned that would suggest Nuketown 2025 was a special event-only map.
It turns out that the original plan was to have Nuketown 2025 rear its head during special double XP events and other fun one-off happenings. The map was not actually intended to be a regular rotation experience, but players were not aware of this and expected to have access to Nuketown 2025 whenever they fired up Black Ops 2.
Thus, you can imagine the disappointment that players gave voices to when the map was removed this week. Social media channels were flooded with players expressing their desire to have the map back and, as we should all know by now, Treyarch listens to their community.
After just two short days out of the rotation, Treyarch has reintroduced Nuketown 2025 to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
The studio has completely turned their original plans upside down for no other purpose than to give the players what they are asking for and we can't give Treyarch and Activision enough credit for this.
