Infinity Ward has said that while it doesn’t have any plans yet to introduce single player downloadable content for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it hasn’t ruled out the possibility altogether.
Speaking to Videogamer.com, Programmer John Shining stated, “I wouldn’t rule it out but we don’t have any plans for that right now."
Shining explained that it has become expected of developers to release multiplayer-based content for First Person Shooter (FPS) titles. However, Shining noted that COD 4’s current downloadable content was in direct response to consumer requests.
"In terms of CoD4, the multiplayer on Xbox LIVE and PSN has been just huge, and so the response there has just been amazing," added Shining.
“A lot of people have told me that it’s the first multiplayer game that they’ve played, so we’ve drawn a lot of new people into our multiplayer. And the community just keeps asking "give us more maps, more maps, we love to play, we just want more variety in the areas we’re fighting in!” So in this case the community has just been asking for more multiplayer maps so that’s what we’ve given them here."
Infinity Ward is currently preparing the release of the variety map pack for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, the former of which will be available on or around April 25.
