With the first set of maps lining up with the recent map leak, it looks like that list of 38 maps is the real deal. It’ll be interesting to see how often Infinity Ward will drop new maps. Four maps a month would stretch those 38 maps deep into next year.
I’m crossing my fingers Shoot House delivers a solid map. The devs stretched themselves too thin on 6v6 maps at launch. It wouldn’t be that big of a deal if the maps were good, but one of the biggest complaints from the community is map design. And how it influences the gameplay. There’s way too many places to camp, and too many sight lines to watch.
A patch is also expected to drop alongside the maps tomorrow according to a developer (via Resetera). Here are the priority issues expected to be addressed according to Joe Cecot, a co-design director of multiplayer at Infinity Ward.
Those issues are a good place to start. Hopefully, we’ll get a detailed list of patch notes tomorrow of exactly what Infinity Ward tweaked.
