Map editors are pretty unusual in right this moment’s shooters. Halo’s Forge mode is a giant one, and Infinite’s model is focusing on August in keeping with the newest roadmap. A couple of months after that, we’ll get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which can reportedly have a map editor of its personal.

The report comes from recognized Call of Duty leaker Ralph Valve, who wrote in regards to the potential map editor on WhatIfGaming.

You can’t construct fully new maps, however you may make adjustments to ones which are already established.

“Modified maps will allow each creator the option of customizing spawn points, objectives, and restrictions,” Valve continues, “with the addition of completely changing the scenery of a level and its individual properties, such as crates and containers.” This mechanical- and aesthetic-focused customization nonetheless appears like it will present loads of artistic alternative for Call of Duty gamers — ought to it show to be true. The map editor concept has allegedly been floating round Infinity Ward and Treyarch since 2019’s Modern Warfare. It could be the primary of its sort for the Call of Duty sequence.

This isn’t the primary time details about maps within the new game has leaked. A mock-up of Warzone 2’s map additionally hit the web — the identical map can be stated for use for Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ multiplayer mode. Additionally, a second Warzone 2 map is claimed to be in growth.
