MW3 Drop Zone offline, doesn’t bode well for missing modes

By Jamie Pert - Feb 7, 2012

When we revealed that a new playlist called Infected was coming to Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer offerings we were pretty excited, however we were unaware that this would result in a different game mode disappearing, today we’ve got a slight update on the situation.

The game mode which was taken offline is Drop Zone, this was played under core conditions and involved two teams trying to take control of the ‘drop zone’, it was a bit of a frag-fest to be honest, but popular none-the-less, therefore there are lots of people upset to hear that

Reactions on Twitter show just how many people enjoyed Drop Zone, some of which even go as far as saying Drop Zone was the best MW3 multiplayer offering. What confuses us is why both Drop Zone and Infection can’t be available simultaneously.

Infinity Ward’s community manager, Robert Bowling, has commented on the matter, here’s what he tweeted:

We hear what you’re saying about missing Drop Zone in #MW3 loud & clear! We’re limited on playlist space, but looking at solutions for it!

We guess there are some limitations in regards to just how many multiplayer game modes can be offered, but what bothers us is that many of us still want some other game modes added. If Infinity Ward is adopting a ‘one-in, one-out’ policy it doesn’t bode well for missing playlists such as Hardcore Headquarters, Hardcore Free-For-All, Hardcore Demolition or Hardcore Capture the Flag.

While we are talking about MW3 multiplayer game modes we would love to hear what game modes you would like to see added to the game and which you wouldn’t mind losing. Personally I miss Hardcore Capture the Flag the most as it was a very tactical game mode, as for what to get rid off, I hate core game modes – so for me any of these wouldn’t be missed.
