It has come to light that the recently released new Maps for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Piazza and Liberation are profile locked. This means that other profiles registered and used by the console can not access the content – but a fix is definitely on the way.
The Terms and Conditions for Elite Subscribers access to content state that “You can use this item on the first Xbox 360 console you downloaded it to. Access to this item will also be granted to all users on this first console.”
In a recent statement, Infinity Ward’s Creative Strategist Robert Bowling quoted:
“…Elite premium members on Xbox Live who purchased the latest DLC content drop for Modern Warfare 3 are unable to access that content while signed into other profiles on the same console that originally downloaded the content… This is unintentional, and we will work to get an update out as soon as possible that corrects this issue and allows you to continue to enjoy the new maps…”
The next title update fixing this issue has not yet been dated, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it was just in time for the next DLC drop in February.
