Call of Duty Patch Update

The story about the Call of Duty 2 Xbox Live update last night (story) also contained an update about the PC patch that was promised four months ago now (story). Last month word was the patch was in testing and due "soon" (story), but now this has been downgraded again to "upcoming" in an update that does specify the two multiplayer maps to be included in the patch for the WW2 shooter sequel:
For fans of "Call of Duty 2" for Windows® PC, Infinity Ward and Activision have also revealed new details surrounding the upcoming release of a highly-anticipated update, which will include the previously announced PunkBuster™ anti-cheat technology, as well as two new multiplayer maps: "Rhine" and the longtime community favorite "Harbor", from the original "Call of Duty"

CoD2 sold well for PC did it not? I couldn't imagine a company cutting support for a game they are making money on.

*cough*EA&NeedForSpeedMostWanted*cough*

I agree that it'll be surprising if there's another patch beyond this. It took so long for this patch that by the time they even consider doing another one, it'll be well past its sales cycle and they'll be onto the next one. The single player game for me was hassle-free (other than the fact that this engine runs very badly relative to how it looks) and online, I didn't experience any problems at all until recently when I've noticed more cheaters. Other than the lack of anti-cheat, I think CoD2 was pretty well polished (especially when you look at bugfests like Battlefield 2.) However yeah, they're ignoring of the community isn't going to do well for the following the games have.
