Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has almost come, and the game is set to attract lots of fresh content and features as it finally launches. 1 place it may be lacking is the maps department, however, since Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will allegedly have fewer maps at launch than initially intended.
This terrible news follows controversy concerning Dark Ops Cold War’s PlayStation exclusive articles, as dependable Call of Duty insider Tom Henderson has shared that the sport will only have 8 unique 6v6 maps on day one. While this number makes some sense given the accession of Combined Arms and the necessity to make 12v12 maps too, Henderson believes there should be many more maps in the match on one.

According to Henderson, it’s astonishing” that there are only 8 6v6 maps in the launch,” as the leaker claims that”there clearly was 12 to 13 planned” originally. This lines up with the promises made by TheGamingRevolution, another CoD leaker, saying that there will be over 10 channels at launch for Black Ops Cold War. With several sources reporting this particular map count, Henderson believes that”something has gone wrong somewhere” may be true.
The lack of 6v6 maps at the start could be due to several things. Activision’s focus on prioritizing Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s integration with Warzone could have restricted the time Treyarch needed to complete other maps. Beyond this, Treyarch did have to pick up the slack for Sledgehammer and complete the match on a yearlong cycle, another factor that could have led to a more compact map count.
Still, with numerous teams helping Treyarch with the game’s development, it appears unlikely that either of them is the cause. One fan’s suggestion that”they’re spoon-feeding” players the maps as DLC could be correct, as Nuketown is confirmed to come after launch. Holding some of the maps before afterward could enable Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s seasonal content to be more eventful, with every season possibly providing multiple new maps and larger drops of content.
