Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Two New Maps Quietly Removed A Week After They Were Added
Infinity Ward added a trio of new maps to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare last week, but the studio has now quietly removed two of them without explanation.
Last week we reported that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which Activision had seemingly ended support for, received the classic Call of Duty 4 map Killhouse, as well as two new maps called Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage.
In addition to Killhouse, the Drainage (Gunfight) and Al-Raab Airbase maps are also available in #ModernWarfare Private Matches.

But, as spotted by Eurogamer, both of the new maps have now been removed, while Killhouse remains, accompanied by the Killhouse 24/7 playlist inside the game. Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase were previously playable in private matches, but if you log into the game now, you won’t be able to choose them during custom game setup.
It’s not clear why the maps were even added, never mind removed, and Activision nor Infinity Ward haven’t commented on the situation, which makes it all the more confusing. Hopefully, we’ll get an official explanation soon. We’ve contacted them for comment.
Infinity Ward appears to have removed Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage MP maps from Modern Warfare quietly. The two maps were added to play in Private Matches last week. Both are no longer on the list for players.
Killhouse is still available.
