Remember Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare? Released in 2019, did rather well and was a reboot of the original? Well, Activision's memory has just been jogged and the publisher has silently added another handful of maps to the multiplayer.
Activision has shifted its focus to supporting Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, which is understandable as they are the most recent entries and they are a veritable cash cow. Every day, Call of Duty generates £2.4 million in physical purchases and online transactions from more than 250 million players across the titles active at the moment, and this astonishing figure is only going to rise and rise. "We feel really good about [it] and very confident in our strategy going forward," said Rob Kostich, president of Activision Publishing. "Warzone will continue to be a central part of that future content planning. It's where our entire community can come together and experience the latest the franchise has to offer and our goal remains the same. Whether you are a premium or free-to-play Call of Duty player, we want to provide everyone with incredible game play experiences, and we're going to continue to invest significantly across all fronts to support that effort for the community."
In addition to Killhouse, the Drainage (Gunfight) and Al-Raab Airbase maps are also available in #ModernWarfare Private Matches.

So, it was a splendid surprise for players to see four new maps added to Modern Warfare, under the cover of the Season Two Reloaded update. These are the Killhouse map for the new Killhouse playlist, Al-Raab Airbase (6v6) and Drainage (Gunfight). Weirdly, these have been added with zero fanfare. No patch notes. No acknowledgement from Activision. Resultantly, players have been scratching their heads as to whether there is any more content on its way to Modern Warfare, or if this is it. We'll let you know if we learn more.
