False advertising

Activision and Treyarch recently release Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 with an offer that if you pre-order you will be given access to a map called Nuketown 2025. After this weekend they have removed the map from being playable, with no warning or explanation except for it will be back "On special occasions" I say this is False Advertising to and deceptive, it makes people pay more then they should by upgrading to a bigger edition of the game when in reality the extra money is not needed.
At no point during Activision’s promotion of the Nuketown 2025 pre-order bonus did they mention that the popular Black Ops map, re-imagined in a 60′s depiction of the “Model Home of the Future”, would only be available for a limited amount of time. There is a disclaimer on the Call Of Duty website that players will need to download Nuketown 2025 to access to Double XP Launch Weekend but nothing regarding it’s limited appearance. This has caused millions to spend extra money that they didnt need to.
I personally feel robbed and fooled by them. Needless to say i wont touch another product which bears their name.
