Rumour – First shots of Modern Warfare 2 DLC revealed

TTG are carrying what it claims to be the first screens of the first map pack coming to Modern Warfare 2, codenamed the “Stimulus Package”, sometime this spring, showing it could be closer then we thought.

The screens mostly show the maps are actually remakes of old maps from Call of Duty 4 like Overgrown, Crash, Storm and a new map known as Complex.

It looks real enough, but we’ll shoot an email off to Activision just to be sure.

The first DLC is exclusive to Xbox 360 for at least a timed period of 30 days.

It comes in the week where Infinity Ward lost its two co-heads Vince  Zampella and Jason West, with the pair now suing Activision for $36 million for unpaid royalties, as well as “contractual rights” to the Modern Warfare IP.

The publisher called the lawsuit “meritless” in a statement released last night.
