In the video above, Matt enthusiastically explains that the excitement of faithfully modernizing these 16 seminal multiplayer maps was palpable. Sledgehammer Games’ designers were passionately involved, each one taking ownership of bringing one of the Modern Warfare 2 (2009) maps back to life in Modern Warfare III.
Matt emphasizes the importance of providing players with a fresh perspective on these classic maps. The team asked themselves, “What made the movement and gunplay of older games so enjoyable?
