Verdansk map to remain in Warzone after Black Ops Cold War launch
Call of Duty have confirmed that Warzone will continue to play on the Verdansk map after the integration with Black Ops Cold War.
In an announcement on November 5, Call of Duty released details on the future of Warzone. It detailed how Warzone will integrate with Black Ops Cold War and what that means for Modern Warfare.
In this announcement, it was revealed that Verdansk will still be the Warzone map after the integration.
Call of Duty said: “…as the Cold War heats up across Verdansk (and beyond) in the months and seasons ahead.”
Operators from both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War will be together in Verdansk as Treyarch and Raven Software take the reigns.
We are still waiting for details on what Verdansk will look like after the integration. Black Ops Cold War is primarily set in the 1980s and Modern Warfare in the 2010s. It’s possible that Verdansk will be updated to accommodate for a time shift, or modern-day Verdansk will be impacted by the events of Cold War.
A new island location has also been teased for Warzone. In the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 roadmap, the Warzone section teases a ‘Classified Warzone Experience’ on December 10. Within redacted text is the word ‘Island’ and before that, a Russian word that translates the phrase to read ‘Rebirth Island.’
Black Ops fans will remember Rebirth Island as the Soviet base in which Nova 6 gas was developed. It could also be a reference to Alcatraz Island.
Warzone’s ‘Rebirth Island’ could be off the coast of Verdansk, or perhaps something entirely new coming later.
