This year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will include every launch map from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, remastered and expanded with new game modes and features.
The news was previously leaked and revealed indirectly through Call of Duty’s ARG marketing campaign, but now we have explicit confirmation from Activision via a press release. The full list of 16 launch maps includes: Afghan, Derail, Estate, Favela, Highrise, Invasion, Karachi, Quarry, Rounddown, Rust, Scrapyard, Skidrow, Sub Base, Terminal, Underpass, and Westland.
What’s even more interesting is that these classic maps are coming back with updates and additions that weren’t present in Modern Warfare 2 in 2009. It’s not clear exactly what these new features are, but they will certainly put a fresh spin on a set of familiar environments.
This will also come as a very welcome surprise for people who were hoping to get at least some maps in the 2020 Modern Warfare 2 remaster, which only featured the campaign and did not include any sort of multiplayer component. Meanwhile, and of course confusingly, the 2022 reboot sequel Modern Warfare 2 is more distinct from the 2009 game and doesn’t share any of the same launch maps, so this really seems to be giving fans of that 14-year-old game what they’ve been wanting for years.
It’s unclear whether any of Modern Warfare 3’s 2023 maps will eventually add any of Modern Warfare 2’s 2009 post-launch maps, but I’d say the 16 launch maps are a pretty good start.
