Nuketown 2025 map pulled from Black Ops II

Call of Duty: Black Ops II's special edition "Nuketown 2025" map has been removed from the game.

The exclusive map will only be available during special occasions, such as the double XP weekend which just came to an end.

"Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don't kill the messenger," Tweeted game design director David Vonderhaar.

"Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events. You can always play it with your friends in Custom Games," he added.

It's a blow to dedicated fans, as the remake of Black Ops' Nuketown was a pre-order bonus and also included with the Hardened and Care Package editions. Considering that, we had assumed it would be available all the time, not as a special events map.

Sucks a little, what so special about the map to only include it at special events?
LUL, good. Such an awful map which I don't understand why it's so popular.

I just don't get Nuketown. It's popularity (or infamy) seems to have forced it into Declassified...although it's been halved down the middle meaning you respawn in an enemies fire sight.

I used to quit lobbies that voted for it in BLOPS. I actually have no interest in downloading it.
Hearing about this now totally makes my pre-order meaningless since I thought the Double XP was for ALL maps. Not shitstained Nuketown.
Oh.. So that's why I was levelling up so quickly.. Cause it was double exp weekend..
Under Australian consumer laws, we have the right to demand a full refund as a feature that was advertised with the game has been removed.
If nuketown 2025 is gone.. thats ridiculous. It's DLC?
LMFAO!
You COD people getn boned in the ass! [MOG]
If nuketown was supposed to be a pre order bonus, how come the copy I bought from big w on Sunday came with it?
WTF! That is all... :(
WHAT
THEY SAID NUKETOWN WILL BE THERE 24 HOURS.
7-DAYS A WEEK!! "WE NEVER CLOSE"

fuuuu.

Because it didn't have to be sold as a preorder bonus, it was just included in the first shipment of them for retailers to do as they wish.

You can still play it under custom games and I think it may make its way into the normal playlists.

It isn't a pre order bonus, all initial/first wave stock of the game will contain the map.
This article makes it seem asif the DLC is going to be removed completely off the game..
but in reality its just the nuketown 24/7 thats going :P
Meh. No big deal, To be honest.

It's Nuketown. Didn't play much of it on the weekend and i probably won't for future "special events"

nuketown is the DLC [Shifty]
that's pretty shit if you ask me, its meant to be an exclusive map.... they never mentioned it being a seasonal map!!
Haha, trust Activision to dick customers over. Claims map will be open 24/7, is only up for 6 days.
Good. Rubbish map anyways, always was. Hope it never makes it into the playlist
they didn't plan it well it was only on 1 game type :( not even on TDM.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND it's back.
double xp was over all playlists, not just nuketown 24/7..
it's bs they tried to do away with it and act like nothing happened.. they bought it back in a crappy moshpit.. i dunno, pretty consumer unfriendly
