A new leak surrounding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 suggests that there could be a map editor coming to the game.
Gamespot reports that a notable COD leaker, RalphsValve, has previously made a claim that Modern Warfare’s 2 multiplayer would feature a variety of throwback maps originally featured in the 2009 hit.
Modern Warfare 2’s world premiere trailer is set to debut on June 8 and leaks are continuing to surface, painting a clearer picture of what players can expect from the new game.
RalphsValve has now claimed that MW2 could also feature a map editor, which would be a first for the long-running Call of Duty series.
They claim that Infinity Ward is planning to rely on a “community-led effort” to create maps for the game, but the features seem relatively basic at this stage. This could be the first map editor and it may well be expanded for the next Call of Duty game after MW2.
They go on to claim that the editor mode will be an offline mode, giving players the chance to block out, and edit, existing maps within the game.
It’s said to be designed to allow simple changes to the maps, and players will be able to vary spawn points and objectives, while also editing the location of crates and so on.
Of course, this remains a rumour, and we’re yet to see the official gameplay reveal, so this is one to take with a pinch of salt, even if RalphsValve is a reliable leaker with a solid track record.
Modern Warfare 2 is set to launch on October 28th for both PC and consoles, and there will be a variety of trailers coming ahead of the release, with another scheduled for the Summer Game Fest on June 9th.
