2nd Modern Warfare 2 DLC hits XBL June 3
Resurgence Pack arrives on Microsoft's online service in less than a month and will feature five unnamed maps; price TBA.
One week after it shipped the first map pack for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the PC and PlayStation 3, Activision has announced a second batch of DLC. Like the original Stimulus Package, the Resurgence Pack will first arrive on the Xbox 360 before coming to Windows systems or Sony's console. The five-map add-on will debut on Xbox Live on June 3, with the other platforms receiving it at a later date.
The Stimulus Package was criticized for charging $15 for only three new maps and two upgraded maps from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. That didn't stop it from selling more than 1 million units within 24 hours upon its late-March launch, with sales having since topped 2.5 million units. The DLC revenue helped Activision Blizzard earnings hit $1.3 billion during the January-March quarter and also brought total Call of Duty franchise map pack sales to 17 million units.
Activision did not reveal any further details on the Resurgence Pack other than to say it was in development at what's left of the studio behind Modern Warfare 2. In March, Activision fired Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West, sparking more than 35 staffers to resign and file a lawsuit potentially worth $625 million. Many have since joined Zampella and West's new independent studio, Respawn Entertainment, which is backed financially by Electronic Arts.
