Call of Duty fans have savored all the details provided in the progression overview, and this is just a taste of what’s to come on launch day.
Although the CoD series is at the top of most lists of best fps gamesthey had a lot to prove. Call Of Duty: Vanguard made a relatively lukewarm splash in 2021, and gamers had high hopes for this new game that, well, bears the same name as an older game. modern war 2 brings a lot of expectations, but it looks like we’ll have a satisfying mix of familiar and new when the game launches – with some rumored, temporary changes that might make 10v10 map fans hesitate.

Nightmare in the Museum
reading the global vision (opens in new tab) posted by Activision, we received some information about the cloaking challenges, the game’s detailed weapon mastery system, and a glimpse into how the daily and career challenges will work.
However, those who managed to play the campaign mode were in for an unpleasant surprise when they realized that, at the time of publishing, there were only 10 6v6 map lots available to play, and the much-loved Museum map is nowhere to be seen.
Based at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, USA, the map has been a fan favorite for years. CoD’s trusted Twitter source charlieINTEL, who also tweeted about the Museum’s map disappearance and restrictive staff sizes, reported in September that all mentions of the Grand Prix map have been deleted (opens in new tab) of all promotional materials previously published by Activision.
It’s unclear what happened, but Activision has deleted all mentions of the ‘Grand Prix’ map for #MWII. The overview video and others have been removed from all social media. The map was originally announced to be in beta.September 17, 2022
With the Qatari Grand Prix taking place this year, reportedly this removal from the map is due to the detailed reimagining of these very public, high-profile venues. Combine that detail with Call of Duty’s nature as an FPS title and you’ve got a recipe for something pretty troublesome.
However, until we receive confirmation, this is pure speculation; it is highly likely that maps will be added at a later date for the release of the 10v10 map setup, which would make sense considering the size of the Museum map in particular.
Gaming has reached out to Activision and the Getty Museum for comment.
