A prominent Call of Duty leaker has revealed more details about Black Ops Cold War’s upcoming Zombies mode and maps, after it was teased by Treyarch during the multiplayer reveal.

The highly anticipated multiplayer reveal for Black Ops Cold War finally took place on September 9, releasing plenty of new details about the upcoming title and giving fans an early look at gameplay.

However, as with any Treyarch title, Call of Duty fans were quite eager to see if any updates would be shared on the classic Zombies mode they can also expect to see in-game.

Despite being a multiplayer reveal, Treyarch did share a short Zombies teaser at the end of the trailer, highlighting a brief look at the upcoming  Zombies gameplay.

Fans were quick to point out the similarities between the staircase in the clip and the one in World at War’s Nacht der Untoten, claiming that some version of the iconic map could be returning in Black ops Cold War.

Prominent Call of Duty leaker Tom Henderson (formerly known as Long Sensation) provided fans with more even details, on September 10, revealing that this new Nacht would fit in with the game’s Cold War theme.

The former YouTuber revealed that the Nacht Der Untoten players will experience in BOCW will see the building turned into a base for the Russian Nuclear program before a zombies outbreak turns things upside down.

“Nacht reused by the Russians for their nuclear program,” he revealed, “Zombie Nazis escape and infect the site (there’s Russian and Nazi Zombies).”

He also shared that BOCW’s Zombies will feature a brand new cast of characters, old WW2 weapons can still be purchased from walls, and that players will start with a torch before turning the power on.

While it is still unclear just how big this map will be, fans also spotted similarities to BO3’s TranZit, suggesting that the Nacht building might only make up a small portion of the new map.

There has been plenty of theories surrounding BOCW’s Zombies already but it is likely that more information about the survival mode will be shared in the coming weeks.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
