The first glimpse into the inclusion of MW2 (2009) maps in Modern Warfare 3 has been unveiled.


It’s now official that all 16 classic maps from Modern Warfare 2 (2009) will be available to play in Modern Warfare 3 from the moment of its launch. Remarkably, only six of the iconic MW2 maps have undergone remastering over the years.

Among these remastered versions, Highrise and Favela, two of the most beloved maps, have made a comeback. Yet, it’s been nearly a decade since either of these cherished environments graced a Call of Duty title. Surprisingly, Skidrow and Estate, despite their popularity, have never received the remaster treatment.

Modern Warfare 3 presents an ideal opportunity for long-time series enthusiasts to revisit their favorite in-game locales. However, several of these maps were in dire need of a modern facelift. Here’s a glimpse into how the developers meticulously brought all 16 of these 6v6 battlegrounds up to date.

The team at Sledgehammer Games, including Art Director Matt Abbott and Design Director Zach Hodson, shared their creative process behind the MW3 map redesigns.

Hodson emphasized the team’s aspiration to seamlessly blend the movement and gunplay mechanics of older games with those of more recent titles.

As Abbott put it, “Our goal is to create the best versions of these maps that fans have ever experienced because that’s what we, as fans ourselves, desire.”

In addition to the 16 classic 6v6 maps, the developers have confirmed the inclusion of four new battle maps. Both Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 and Season 2 will introduce three fresh 6v6 maps, with the promise of over 12 additional maps throughout the seasonal content plan.

Players eager to explore these revamped maps will have the opportunity to do so during the Modern Warfare 3 beta. To stay updated on official dates and participation details, be sure to consult our early access guide.
