Halo 3 is a Ghost Town

UPDATE: Added a top-down view with weapon placements from Bungie's Weekly Update

No, not in terms of number of players, but in terms of a new map. Today Bungie Studios showed off the first of the new maps from the next pack due out later this spring.
Here is what Bungie had to say about the map:"Ghost Town is the fragmented ruins of a small 24th century water purification complex that geographically lies just North and West of the jungle foothills hydroelectric facility from the Sierra 117 mission. The well-protected facility built into a shallow ravine was once home to the Global Water Campaign, where the still somewhat-pure Kilimanjaro meltwater was transported via pipelines from the river and directed to this small outpost where it became further purified, and then transported via GWC trans-African pipelines along the Tsavo Highway for distribution throughout the entire continent."

Bungie also states that the map is great for one flag CTF, one bomb, free-for-all and slayer gametypes. No clues yet as to when to expect the next map pack. Stay tuned for more information.
