The Fans Have Spoken, Nuketown 2025 is Back!

Posted on November 20, 2012 AT 04:59am

Less than 24 hours after announcing the closure of the Nuketown 2025 playlist Treyarch has been forced to reintroduce the map following an angry outburst by fans.

Treyarch game design director David Vonderhaar tweeted the following to fans:

“Double XP weekend is official over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. RIGHT? Don’t kill the messenger. Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 will be back for special events. You can always play it with your friends in Custom Games.”

Of course this didn’t go down well with fans who vented their anger in every way possible over the promised pre-order map being yanked so soon after launch. This led Vonderhaar to tweet a message:

“You killed the messenger, but I still fight for the users. RT to #bringbackNuketown2025 and we will add to a small maps moshpit.”

Fans answered the call and Treyarch announced that a new fast-action playlist called Chaos Moshpit is now available in the game which includes Nuketown 2025.

“Just launched a new fast-action playlist in the Bonus category called Chaos Moshpit. Back by popular demand: Nuketown 2025!”

While it may not have its own playlist anymore at least fans can still enjoy the map, and it also shows that angry fans can achieve a lot.

Are you excited to have the map back? Let us know in the comments below.
