Activision willing to alter MW3 DLC Content Calendar

Earlier this week we informed you about a rather mysterious MW3 video online, which appeared to confirm the arrival of several new multiplayer maps as part of upcoming content drops. However, Activision has now made their June DLC official, but there’s no new standard multiplayer maps in sight.

In actual fact, Activision and IW have revealed that Elite members on Xbox 360 will instead have one new Spec Ops mission to play and three new Face Off maps to enjoy. After the last content drop was packed with normal multiplayer maps though, we’re not too surprised that Infinity Ward are giving players something different in terms of DLC this time around.

Thanks to a Tweet by Mark Rubin, we now know that the Spec Ops mission will be titled Arctic Recon, while the three Face Off maps are Intersection, U-Turn and Vortex respectively. What interests us though, is not the content of these new maps, but the fact that IW and Activision are willing to make changes to their DLC schedule as they see fit.

If you have been keeping an eye on the content calendar, you’ll know that there were originally just three slots for the June DLC content. However, if you visit the page now, you’ll see that Activision has added a fourth slot for the extra Face Off map, so actually – how serious should Elite members treat this Content Calendar?

Activision show two slots for July’s content drops, but don’t be surprised if we actually see more than two pieces of content. Those leaked map names we showed you earlier this week seem very real, so they may be featuring next month instead. With this month’s update not including any new standard multiplayer maps, you have to assume that Elite members on Xbox 360 are going to get treated next month with content that includes regular maps.

How happy are you to see your content drops being used up for Spec Op missions? Do you like the mixing and matching, or would you just prefer to get new standard maps every month?
