Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Two New Maps Quietly Removed A Week After They Were Added

Infinity Ward added a trio of new maps to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare last week, but the studio has now quietly removed two of them without explanation. Last week we reported that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which Activision had seemingly ended support for, received the classic Call of Duty 4 map Killhouse, as well as two new maps called Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage. But, as spotted by Eurogamer, both of the new maps have now been removed, while Killhouse remains, accompanied by the Killhouse 24/7 playlist inside the game. Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase were previously playable in private matches, but if you log into the game now, you won't be able to choose them during custom game setup. It's not clear why the maps were even added, never mind removed, and Activision nor Infinity Ward haven't commented on the situation, which makes it all the more confusing. Hopefully, we'll get an official explanation soon. We've contacted them for comment. In other Call of Duty news, check out our article covering how the Season 2 update finally reduced the game's massive file size. The actor behind Modern Warfare's Mara character also recently got two Warzone cheats banned after calling them out during a Twitch stream.
