Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is just days away from releasing on all platforms. The seventeenth title in the Call of Duty franchise promises to pack a punch with its stunning visuals and gripping storyline. Set in the 1980s, the game’s story takes place at the height of the Cold War. By December, the game will also integrate with Call of Duty Warzone, while keeping the mechanics of Modern Warfare intact. Now, reports suggest that the Black Ops map in Warzone will release in 2021.
According to popular insider channel ‘Modern Warzone’, the map might arrive in March 2021.
“It’s looking like the next iteration of a #Warzone map will be coming in March. Please keep in mind this news is nearly 5 months ahead of time and everything is subject to change, but this is what the credible “rumors” are as of right now.”
Think of it as a biyearly release for Call of Duty.

Popular insider confirms the arrival of Black Ops cold War map in Warzone in 2021
This news was further confirmed by popular industry insider Tom Henderson.
“I’ve heard late Q1 or early Q2 so this is about right. Treyarch themselves even stated in the #BlackOpsColdWar that they can’t wait to show players the next evolution of Verdansk. The map isn’t going anywhere for a while.”
Every time a new map releasing in a BR game everyone hates it and wants the original back anyway, so I think this is the right decision by them.

Considering his track record, this seems credible news. In addition to this, he also makes valid points when he says fans tend to get bored with the new maps quickly. Treyarch will definitely look to avoid such a situation and ensure that fans are excited about the new map.
Speculation around a new Warzone map has been doing the rounds for quite some time now. Many think it will be a snow-based map set in Russia. If this is true, it will bring change the angle to Warzone’s combat.
Fans might have to change a lot of their strategies and base new ones on the new terrain, which will be interesting. Additionally, there is also speculation that the new map could be based on the Call of Duty Blackout map. The possibilities here are endless.
Furthermore, there is also the question of a Season 7 for Modern Warfare. Since Black Ops Cold War releases on November 13, the developers will focus most of their efforts on the new game. This raises questions about the future of the 2019 game and its future updates. Hopefully, more clarity on this subject will be provided soon.
