Modern Warfare 2 fans have expressed a disinterest in the latest maps added to the game, as well as the upcoming multiplayer maps.

With the launch of MW2 Season 1 well underway, fans finally have their hands on the first new content in the game.

However, many believe that the latest map in the game, and those announced to be arriving at a later date, have been disappointing.

Why Are Fans Upset About the New MW2 Multiplayer Maps?

MW2 fans are not happy with the latest lineup of multiplayer maps coming in Season 1 and Season 2 because none of them are original.

Each map that has been announced, or leaked is a remake of one from a previous COD game. Fans have been clamoring for something new as MW2 currently only offers ten original ones.

What is making fans even more upset is the fact that the majority of the confirmed or leaked maps are ones that were remade in recent Call of Duty games.

We recently saw key art for an upcoming remake of an iconic map from World at War. However, fans have already taken umbrage with it appearing in MW2, as it was also remade in Vanguard last year.

It is worth noting that there are some fans who are happy with the number of remade maps coming to MW2.

Some fans believe that MW2’s original ones aren’t very good to begin with. As a result, they feel that the safer option is to remake beloved classic ones than attempt anything new.

Why Are There No New Maps in MW2?

While there is no official reason for the lack of new maps in MW2, fans have speculated that it could be to do with the rumored upcoming paid DLC arriving next year.

However, this DLC has also been rumored to include a Classic Maps Pack, including maps from across Call of Duty’s history.

Of course, this is pure speculation. It is altogether possible that the first handful of new ones coming to MW2 are remakes, while the rest will be original.
