Fans of Call of Duty Zombies are in for a treat as Treyarch will be hosting the official reveal for Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies, and we’ve got everything you need to watch it all live.

After a year’s absence in Modern Warfare, Treyarch are bringing the ever-beloved Zombies mode back to Call of Duty in the upcoming Black Ops Cold War title.

Now that the worldwide reveal events for the game’s campaign and multiplayer are in the books, the next thing on the docket is Zombies, and the good news is that fans don’t have to wait much longer.

When is the Black Ops Cold War Zombies reveal?

The reveal event will take place on Wednesday, September 30, at the following worldwide times:

  • 10:00 AM PT
  • 12:00 PM CT
  • 1:00 PM ET
  • 6:00 PM BST (UK)
  • 7:00 PM CEST (Europe)
  • 3:00 AM AEST (Australia – October 1)

The event will be livestreamed on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel, which we’ll include below shortly before things kick off.

Usually, these sorts of presentations also get broadcasted on the CoD Twitch channel, but that might not be the case this time around because of the ongoing ROKKR Royale Warzone tournament.

What to expect from the Zombies reveal

There are obviously not too many details available on what’ll be shown and discussed during the showcase, but an update to Modern Warfare’s Message of the Day screen has given us at least some of what to expect.

According to the message, the stream will include the official reveal trailer, words from the developers, and a “first taste of the mind-bending, undead action coming to Black Ops Cold War.”

Teasers, leaks, and everything else we know so far

Just as with the multiplayer, Treyarch and Activision led Zombies fans on a massive easter egg hunt through their Pawn Takes Pawn teaser website for Black Ops Cold War.

They event sent old-school computer terminals to popular content creators, who used them to access various pages on the PTP website before finally deciphering when the reveal event would take place.

Then there are the teasers themselves, which started with a clip at the end of the multiplayer worldwide reveal trailer, which was short but long enough to get fans excited.

That was followed by a series of old-style photographs that were discovered in one of the Pawn Takes Pawn pages, showing glimpses of what the BOCW Zombies will look like.

The trail of teasers wrapped up with one final clip on September 28, as the page that revealed the time and date of the stream also included this mini-clip.

Last but not least, Call of Duty dataminers have also leaked a lot of supposed details for the BOCW Zombies, including information about the various maps, weapons, and perks.

According to prominent leaker TheGamingRevolution, there will be four maps in total – two versions of Nacht der Untoten, Firebase Z, and Berlin. As for the perks, they’ll apparently include Deadshot, Stamin-Up, Juggernog, Speed Cola, and the new Elemental Pop, while Specialist abilities, which are not returning to multiplayer, will be featured in this mode.

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.
