"I'd take off Friday," says Infinity Ward

CoD4 Variety map pack due tomorrow

CoD4 downloadable conent due this Friday - sickness at the ready

The (what's starting to feel like) long overdue CoD4 Variety map pack should be with 360 owners by the end of the week, according to community mouthpiece, Robert Bowling.

"Despite what the internet might tell you (including some 'official' sources), the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare variety map pack has NOT been delayed until the 10th," explained Bowling.

"As of right now we're pushing certification for an on-time release for April 3rd or 4th. As of right now though, I'm being told that it's a good chance it will be released worldwide (except for Japan) tomorrow night / early-Friday morning."

We played the four new maps last Friday at an exclusive event in a surprisingly warm London NCP car park. And so did a handful of lucky CVG winners. It's safe to say you're going to love the new maps. Creek was our favourite by a mile.

"For those of you asking when you should take off work, I'd take off Friday, as it looks like they should be available late Thursday night / early Friday morning, which means Friday you should be able to play all day," added Bowling.

We presume he's only talking about the 360 version, as IW told us that the PS3 version of the DLC is running three weeks behind.
