Call of Duty Elite members are tucking into some brand new Modern Warfare 3 DLC maps right now, but everyone without a subscription has to play the waiting game. We know that more new maps are on the way in the coming months, but there’s also the possibility of a few old school COD maps being remade for MW3 as well.
If you have been following potential map leaks for Infinity Ward’s latest shooter, you’ll know that it isn’t the first time that we have spoke about the possibility of old COD4 and Modern Warfare 2 maps appearing in MW3. Back in November we informed you about a dubious-looking video which hinted of a ‘Nostalgic’ map pack coming to Modern Warfare 3, a pack which would be consisted of remade maps from older Call of Duty games, but brought back to life with the Modern Warfare 3 engine.
A lot of you were saying that the Nostalgic pack was fake at the time and while we would probably agree with you on that point, we have some interesting details to share with you now. During a recent interview with Machinima, MW3 community manager Robert Bowling has been talking about the possibility of bringing old maps back into MW3 and even went on to list some of his favorites should this happen, as reported from MP1st.
If he had the final say, he would like to see Favela, Crossfire and Backlot appear in Modern Warfare 3. But he also revealed that his favorite two maps in the series are Crash and Overgrown. We imagine that he has a pretty big say in future map development for the game, so could his comments possibly carry any weight as future DLC? While we would like to see new maps in MW3, we have to agree with some of his choices. Favela was a brilliant map, while we’re sure everyone loves Crash and Overgrown as well.
If old maps are indeed returning to MW3 as future DLC – what old school map wishlist would you submit to Infinity Ward for consideration? Give us your best ideas below.
