Only Two Modern Warfare 2 Map Packs Planned

Though we've known for a while that two downloadable Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map packs would hit Xbox 360 first before any other platform, it now appears that those two map packs could be the entirety of the shooter's downloadable content.

"We plan to launch two separate map packs for this title," Activision Publishing CEO Mike Griffith said of Modern Warfare 2's "online content" in a conference call, adding that over 8 million Call of Duty map pack downloads have been sold on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Said map packs are traditionally priced at 800 MS Points ($10) on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and usually hit PC a bit later on in the form of a free update. Infinity Ward, which is crafting Modern Warfare 2, released one map pack for the first Modern Warfare, while Treyarch has thus far produced three for the more recent Call of Duty: World at War.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 hits PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 10--the same day the Wii gets the original Modern Warfare and the DS gets Mobilized.

      Not really. Treyarch will release WaW 2 (guessing name of course) next year. 2 years for Infinity Wards next title.

        Not that I dislike IW working on Modern Warfare games, but I'd like to see them try something new too.

          Word of Treyarch on Call of Duty 7 arrived earlier this year, though it was quickly removed:

            Yeah, i'm guess they stick with Treyarch after the success of CoD: WaW

              NO thats not the reason, the reason is that activision wants MONEY so IW couldn't make a cod title every year so treyarch should be making a COD7 and probably COD9
