Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been out for a couple of weeks now. The game has already broken sales records and has become the best selling Call of Duty game of this generation. For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward has decided to go back to the roots of the franchise and reinvent the formula within a much darker setting.
While the single player campaign is gathering high praise from everyone, the multiplayer is not far behind either. The new multiplayer changes the meta for the franchise by introducing bigger maps and a much more refined and slower experience. We’ve also got some new game modes like the 2v2 Gunfight and the massive 32v32 chaos that is Ground War.
However, as always, people dig through the game files to find some interesting information about the game and the development process. Usually, data miners find some unused textures or areas that may have been scrapped. With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare though, it seems like they’ve struck a massive gold mine.
Data miners strike gold while rummaging through Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game files
In what could possibly be the biggest leak of this generation, data miners have found evidence of 38 new maps and 23 game modes making their way to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. While there is no confirmation from the developer about whether these will even get released, the sheer number of maps and game modes that exist out in the wild is still staggeringly high.
Usually, game developers don’t include so much stuff into their game files right from the start. Releasing new maps and game modes is an ongoing gradual process that spreads out over a long span of time. However, it seems like Infinity Ward has already figured out everything that the game will get in the long run.
The impressiveness of this feat in terms of planning on the part of the developer cannot be undermined.
