Activision knows all the right buttons to press to build anticipation, announcing two ‘favorite’ maps coming in Modern Warfare 2 Season 1.

Modern Warfare 2 is finally just around the corner. Players were first introduced to multiplayer action during the Open Beta, with four traditional maps and two Ground War maps.

Some community members enjoyed MW2’s first few maps and strayed from Modern Warfare 2019’s vertical map layout in favor of a classic three-lane style. We don’t know how many will arrive at launch, but a leak revealed the previously abandoned Grand Prix card is making a comeback.

Without knowing much about the game’s offerings, Activision was already teasing two new battlefields coming to Modern Warfare 2 soon.

Activison Announces Two New Modern Warfare 2 Maps

In the MW2 launch blog, Activision confirmed that a “fan favorite” is coming on November 16, along with the release of Warzone 2 and Season 1.

The developers also announced that a “legendary” multiplayer map will be released on December 14, which will be released with Raids for Special Ops.

Without concrete details, we can’t know which classic cards make a triumphant return.

Warzone 2’s map, Al Mazrah, features familiar locations from past games, and Activison has confirmed that some multiplayer maps will be based on landmarks from the Battle Royale map.

Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah map includes several classic CoD maps as POIs.

Recurring POIs from the Modern Warfare series include:

  • Quarry (from Modern Warfare 2)
  • Al Mazrah City (including Highrise from Modern Warfare 2)
  • Observatory (Modern Warfare 3’s Dome)
  • Akhdar Village (CoD 4: Showdown Modern Warfare)
  • Airpory (Modern Warfare 2 terminal)

The developers can get from any of these cards and lots of other great options. We will provide an update when both maps are revealed.
