Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 'Resurgence Pack' DLC Hitting Xbox 360 in June

Five new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer maps will arrive for Xbox 360 in the 'Resurgence Pack' downloadable content on June 3, publisher Activision has revealed.

The video games leviathan declined to date the DLC's eventual PC and PlayStation 3 releases or to name a price. However, Activision Blizzard COO Thomas Tippl recently declared that the $15 price of Modern Warfare 2's first DLC "has still provided a fantastic value to gamers." He added "we think that has worked"--no surprise considering the 'Stimulus Package' broke Xbox Live records when it launched on March 30.

The Stimulus Package also offered five multiplayer maps, two of which were from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The PC and PlayStation 3 releases followed later, on May 4.

While Infinity Ward is currently in turmoil, its sister studio Treyarch is beavering away to release Call of Duty: Black Ops, the next instalment in the series, on November 9.

    before everyone flips out about 360 user and/or console gamers ruining gaming, remember that when the stimulus dlc hit the pc it was the top download on steam. So if your in the mood to blame, blame gamers of all persuasions, and not just your console brethren, no group is immune to this nonsense.

        People who use the word "sheeple" usually need to be punched in the mouth.

          For pretty much illustrating how stupidity is acceptable now?

      That's because Steam was the only place you could buy it from...

        But he's right that regardless of the poor product they sold us, numerous people still bought it.

      Ah yes, money's always right, eh?

      I'm sick of seeing features vanish because "under 5% use this feature, and it doesn't make us any money", and sick of being nickel-and-dimed with pathetic DLC meant as a "lock-in" tactic, or cutting room floor scraps hastily glued together, or worse, sections of game left out before release and then sold as DLC (Prince of Persia's "true ending" comes to mind).

      I'd rather buy from developers and publishers who are in it for the long term, and who want to foster a community of enthusiasts, and not lock them out or put them on a pseudo-subscription. The Humble Indie Bundle was an awesome push in this direction. Telltale has a great deal with the Sam & Max episodes, where all of the episodes sell for $35. And games with excellent kinetics and variety, like Aaaaa! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity or Trine.

      Activision's only concerned in hitting their quarterly numbers, not in sustainable franchises or community outreach. People who whine about people whining about consolification and microtransactionization aeem to be aiding this culture of destructive short-term profiteering.

        I was really exited for Singularity considering it's Ravensoft, but I don't know now. It realy amazes me how much of the older games in my collection were made by Activision. It was so different from the company now.

      The price is too much but when you think of how much you pay to play a game like WoW a month it doesnt seem that bad. I dont like it but bitching isnt gonna do anything.

        Are you really that dumb? you realize that games like WoW are CONSTANTLY updated with new content, if that happened to MW2 you would also have to pay a monthly fee, and the price will be much higher. How about researching before spewing that crap.
