Core Maps are custom-made and built exclusively for 6-v-6 game modes, while the Battle Maps are for the 32-v-32 Ground War modes.

With MW2 set to have two full years of content support, recent leaks have also suggested that Infinity Ward plans to release most of the maps from Modern Warfare 2 (2009) in the new MW2 as "premium DLC" in 2023.
