Call of Duty fan concept suggests perfect changes to the Blackout map layout

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode has been a big hit the community since the game was released in October, but there’s always room for improvement.

One of the many things that Treyarch did right with their first attempt at a battle royale title was to play into the nostalgia of Call of Duty’s core fanbase with various maps from previous Treyarch games implemented into the much larger Blackout map.

But one fan thinks the time has come to add even more of those classic points of interest and we have to admit that some of them have completely captured our emotion!

Reddit user ‘tr7272’ submitted a post titled ‘Would you guys like it if Treyarch added some (not all) of these maps?’ and we’re immediately drawn to the two locations that have been added to the ocean in the attached image.

While we would have absolutely no complaints if any of the suggestions were added, the idea of landing on Carrier or Hijacked and getting some great loot before risking the treacherous crossing back to the mainland seems pretty damn cool!

Hijacked and Carrier were both popular multiplayer maps in Black Ops 2. Hijacked was set on a huge, luxurious yacht, while Carrier saw players battling on a Chinese aircraft carrier.

The idea of classic Zombies maps like Der Riese or Kino de Toten is also pretty appealing, especially considering the fact that Blackout already features its fair share of the undead monsters.

It seems likely that Treyarch left space in the Blackout map for this exact purpose and that classic maps will continue to be added, or removed, throughout the year and beyond. For now, though, we can only imagine what those additions might be.

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
