    Bastards.

    Nuketown 2025 has been pulled and now only available for 'special events'.

    I'm sorry but what a absolute load of $#@!.

    As well as myself, I feel for people who enjoyed this map and got sold a absolute LIE about the nuketown 24/7 crap as well as people who may have pre ordered it for relatives at xmas etc knowing the recipient would want the Nuketown map yet now have to wait for whenever Treyarch decide its time for a 'special event'.

    Map will be back for 'special events' or via Custom Games.

    Published on Nov 19, 2012
    Treyarch has pulled Nuketown 2025, the map available as a pre-order bonus for Black Ops 2, as a Playlist option.

    It will now 'be back for special events', according to game design director David Vonderhaar. It is also available through Custom Games.

    This move from Treyarch means that the Black Ops 2 pre-order bonus was live for just under a week. It also makes a mockery of the in-game description for the map: "24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, we never close."

    Though "After 6 days we do close but we'll be back for special events!" isn't quite as catchy.

    Treyarch is getting some heat from Black Ops 2 fans who pre-ordered the game, who at the very least want to see the map moved to regular rotation, so we'll see how Treyarch responds.

    rather than making new maps for special events (ala Team Fortress 2) they take out existing ones

    I sent the same thing to 2 friends of mine who were equally excited. I loved this playlist. I haven't booted up the game for a day or two so I can't say for sure if its gone.. but thats beyond stupid.

    I really would love to post them a steaming pile of $#@! because that's all they seem to do to us.

    Why advertise as 24/7 we never close, yet its only live for 5-6 days...?

    Ah, never more fitting:

    That's Activision for you. It's always about the money. If anything, this will make fans think twice about pre-ordering their games.

    From my understanding, Black Ops 2 had the highest pre-orders of any game in the Call of Duty franchise.

    I only played the map a couple of times due to work. I can already see the backlash this is going to get(Which probably won't last long anyways).

    that's really lame. I remember specifically when EA made Battlefield 1943 a pre-order bonus when you pre-order/buy Battlefield 3. that night they pulled the pre-order bonus and when people had BF3 in their hands there was no BF1943, they announced it like the same day the game came out. o.O point being, what they did was no different. If I could say anything to Activision and Treyarch it would be this, "don't follow in the footsteps of EA/DICE, no good can come from it."

    anyway, Treyarch on the other hand really cheesed the launch of Black Ops 2. The fact they made nuketown not mix in with Vanilla Black Ops 2 maps is quite mind boggling. but considering the stupidity of Treyarch and where their heads were while thinking of what to do with nuketown 2025, this doesn't surprise me on bit.

    And yet, Battlefield beats the gameplay of CoD by a MILE.

    Plus, you should know that it is probably neither Treyarch nor DICE who are responsible for such corporate bull$#@! but the executives of both Activision and EA. Treyarch and DICE are developing the games, their parent companies are the ones pulling the strings in the background with regards to DLC policies, server pulling, map removals, etc.

    That is why my appreciation generally goes out to the developers and not the publishers. Because those guys are much more likely to be gamers at heart.

    and yet your still able to disregard EA's ability to do wrong, shocking. This topic isn't a discussion on gameplay and you know this. so with that being said, EA/DICE still pulled their pre-order and their situation was no different to treyarch. stop trying to sugar coat something when it doesn't need to be.

    it's funny that once you stated something and I pointed out they did the same thing you try to derail the topic into a bull$#@!...

    You haven't understood one thing.

    1. I didn't sugarcoat anything.
    2. I said that it is BOTH EA and Activision executives that come up with that bull$#@! we're talking about here. Where exactly did I disregard EA's ability to do wrong again?
    3. I was pointing out the difference between developers and publishers since so many (you included) don't quite seem to get the difference.

    Get your facts straight, please.

    Yeah, it's been quite the roller coaster ride. Nuketown 2025 has been returned to Black Ops II in a 'Bonus' playlist called "Chaos Moshpit", featuring NT along with some of the other smaller maps in a variety of modes. The permanence of Nuketown has not been promised thus far, but I assume Treyarch won't attempt to remove it again after the uproar it caused.

    Once more on the note of the game's glitchiness, I'm thankful that it isn't unplayable. A majority of the time, the game works without problems and is plenty of fun to play. It's only in rare occasions (for now) that I have any issues.

    Honestly? While I'm not a die-hard fan of Nuketown 2025, it's ridiculous for them to make something available and then to take it away. I would love to hear their reasoning behind this decision, as I don't think any developer would make a decision like this without careful consideration. Yes, they're in for the money, so they must know that a decision like this will potentially make them lose money. F34R's post a perfect example of this:

    My opinion on Treyarch is fluctuating every day, it seems. Overall, I'm still giving Treyarch props for handling the primary issues the game was facing in such a timely manner. Considering the Bethesda fiasco, it's quite refreshing for developers to actually act quickly on something, rather than running around and making a fool out of themselves. Nevertheless, there is no justification for taking away something that was openly flaunted about as being always available.

    I thought this was a joke but I just checked and it's really gone. It was there earlier today.

    I would like to see the man that came up with the idea to screw over everybody that pre-ordered Blops 2. Booo!
