Call of Duty Modern Warfare removed two maps from the game: Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase. Why? Well, because they don't want to see us happy. Details below.
Not long ago, Infinity Ward added three new maps to Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Killhouse, Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage:
That was cool, right? Yeah, it was. Was. Just a couple of days after adding them, Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase were removed from the Modern Warfare.
- Call of Duty: Warzone ZRG 20mm Sniper Loadout: Long-Range Assassin
- Warzone Zombies: Outbreak Spreading to Superstore
Update from April 13:
Several days after the two maps were removed without any warning, there is an official statement from developer Infinity Ward. On Twitter, they explained that Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase were removed again because they "they aren’t quite ready and need a bit more love before returning". Infinity Ward also promises an announcement soon on when the two maps will become available in Modern Warfare again.
We recently released two new maps to Modern Warfare, 'Drainage' and 'Al-Raab Airbase' which were available in private match. We temporarily removed them as they aren't quite ready and need a bit more love before returning. We'll update soon on when they'll be back!— Infinity Ward (@InfinityWard) April 12, 2021
Why Were Drainage and Al-Raab Airbase Removed From Modern Warfare?
Well... nobody knows and neither Activision nor Infinity Ward have commented on this, so we don't know if Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage will be added again. Call of Duty has had its fair share of weird bugs, glitches and removals, but this one is... super odd. Why add maps if you're gonna remove them within ten days? That's not what making yourself rare is all about...
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.— Call of Duty News (@charlieINTEL) April 7, 2021
Killhouse is still available.
We are as confused by this as you. Silver lining though: Killhouse is still available in Modern Warfare. Is this what it comes down to now? Was this the plan all along? Give us three, remove two so that we're happy with one? Is this some sadistic form of expectation management? We don't know.
