During a recent interview with MCV, Robert Bowling revealed some new information about MW3's post-launch support.
Modern Warfare 3 will have a huge focus on post-launch support and the game itself was designed that way from the ground up. Infinity Ward can now do playlist updates and change and add new game modes without any huge patches that can take weeks to test. Players can change a ton of options in private matches, thus allowing them to create of their own unique game modes. New game modes that get a lot of support by the community will be added to the game as default options.
User feedback will determine what new content will be added to the game after launch. Bowling already confirmed that new maps and weapons will be coming later as free updates and paid DLCs, and you as a player, can influence what will be added.
