MW2: PS3 Resurgence Map Pack DLC Release Time U.S. / UK – My Prediction

By Updated on

Usually when DLC is being launched for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 we have some sort of indication of release time for the North America and the United Kingdom, however at the moment we are completely unaware of when to expect the Resurgence Map Package DLC to hit the PS3.

We know that it will definitely be coming to the PlayStation Store today, however plenty of our readers are eager to find out exactly what time it will arrive, therefore I thought I would pull together reliable information to come up with my prediction.

Usually Robert Bowling’s Twitter account keeps us up-to-date with all of the Modern Warfare 2 news, however he has not tweeted for two days, he will probably tweet later today when it launches for PS3, so perhaps consider following him on Twitter.

When the Xbox 360 version of the Resurgence Map Pack hit Xbox Live it arrived at all different times across the globe thanks to the way it was rolled out, however most UK gamers who commented on this post say that the download became available at approximately 8.00pm UK time.

The actual release time is dependant on many variables, therefore it is hard to put an exact time on it, however I think that it will become available at around 8.00pm GMT (UK Time), 4.00pm ET and 1.00pm PST.

These times are my predictions based on previous release patterns, therefore could be completely inaccurate, it all depends on what Sony and Activision decide.

Have you received the update? If so, where are you and what time did you get it?

  • ninagosaimas

    July 6 for USA, but as usual just like the xbox 360 resurgence release this would be recieved by UK, 6 hours later.

  • popacapupyourass

    the game says that it is there but i cant find it

    • lol

      The same for me

      • dylan

        i know and none of my friends have it. it is 5:00 eastern for me and where is the pack!?

      • killa

  • Modern warfare 2 boy

    i just got update a 4pm but cant find them on store. i am in united kingdom. on modern warfare 2 and it says the standard new map pack message. i think they are cumin on at 8pm so yyyyaaaaaayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

  • julia

    so… its the 6th here in canada…. does it come out today?? if so around 4 here too???

  • Austin Goss

    It should be like they did for Xbox Roger was all quiet then an noon he "tweeted" and said they were ready. So Im hoping for noon!

  • Ric

    Its out in North America now but not anywhere else

  • Marte

    US still not out expect it for 6pm

  • Ric

    Its already out in North America and on playlists it sez resurgence but people in U.K have to wait till tomorrow

  • terry

    if its the 7th of july for european users, is it right for the game itself to be telling us new maps are available?

    • CODMW2

      They have to put in the update that allows the map packs to work a couple of hours before they release the content, otherwise it would glitch out the game. The update tells the game to display the message telling you to get the map pack, regardless of whether it's out or not. Besides, it's only wrong for a few hours.

  • Mitch

    In Ontario Canada (Eastern standard time). DL/d for the PC (Same release date as the PS3 version, today, July 6th) and it’s still not avilable on the PC. It’s currently 12:30 PM here.

  • Jeremie

    Its 9:42AM in BC Canada and No Update yet!

  • Steve

    I got the update at about 13:00 GMT, went to Playstation store, no maps. Its 17:50 now and I cant get into Playstation store, maybe they are updating it now??? Hopefully.. these maps look awesome!!

    • dylan

      yeah i got the update that says they are ready but they are not in store. im in us 5:00 eastern

  • shep

    i dont know why ppl are getting so excited the maps are rubbish like the servers for mw2

    • jimbo505

      i agree 100%.the servers make the game completely unplayable not just in my area but my whole bloody country.its disgusting the way fans of this game are treated with all this release date bulls**t and then to top it off when we do get the maps we are just going to get shafted by cheats that infinity ward wont do anything about or we wont get a reasonable game due to servers.infinity ward are only in it for the money, the fact that black ops is going to be run on the same servers means the game is ruined before its even released.

    • marc

      if you dont like the servers get a xbox

  • JokersRevenge4

    I'm in Wisconsin, recieved the update this morning, but I can't find it on Playstatinon Store. I'm guessing in nine minutes, 6 p.m or possibly 8 p.m, not sure.

  • Tdog91184

    Just got the update but now I can't access the playstaion store. 11:55 AM Texas

  • terry

    so to clarify, North America has the maps? UK are apparently 4hours later.. the reason im asking is because every site ive been on gives a different answer, you'd think Infinity Ward would release some clarification on the issue wouldnt you.

    • Jamie Pert

      Hello Terry, tell me about it there seems to be contradicting reports everywhere. I cannot give you a definitive answer at present, there is also talk suggesting that UK gamers will have to wait until tomorrow.

      As we find out more we will keep you posted

  • maverick99sback

    This is pretty poor.

    No communication.

    Why not just say when it's going live?

    And what a wasted opportunity to get use of PSN+ (It could have been exclusive, or reduced, or… SOMETHING to encourage people to buy it)

    I give up with the PSN. You can't polish a turd.

  • bazil-the-chef

  • JCV1605

    I got the update yesterday at 2pm. I hope the maps are out before midnight at least; my download time sucks :(

  • Kyle

    The Stimulus pack came out in Europe around 2.30/3.00pm, so i'm not expecting it before then. I suggest anyone who hasn't already to add the cash to their wallet now, because when they are released, it could take hours to get the maps because of all the cash transactions.
