Warzone could be moving away from Verdansk rather soon as a new report suggests a major update is set for April, bringing with it a Black Ops Cold War overhaul along with an entirely new map.
Since the release of Warzone on March 10, 2020, players have grown accustomed to there being just one map. While Rebirth Island was introduced in December, Verdansk has served as the only map for regular-sized competition since launch.
After months of teasers throughout Warzone’s ongoing narrative, it appears we’re finally set to break new ground. An in-game nuke event will allegedly be the catalyst for one of the biggest updates yet.
At the end of Season 2, nukes around Verdansk will finally be set in motion and serve as the transition to a new 1980’s themed map, according to a report from VideoGamesChronicle.

While the brand new Season has only just begun, at its climax, Verdansk appears to be in store for total destruction. We’ve known for quite some time that a major nuclear event has been building under the surface.
Now, VGC states that this event is coming sooner than later with the end of Season 2 kicking off a major revamp. With the new Battle Pass now available, we know that April 22 is the targeted date for Season 3.
This is reportedly when the new map will come into focus. Nuclear silos now open across Verdansk could be advancing through launch stages as the current season progresses. Once it all kicks off, Verdansk will reportedly be no more.
Players will allegedly be sent to a 1980’s themed battleground, with familiar Black Ops locations scattered throughout. While a number of key areas were featured throughout the earlier Blackout mode in Black Ops 4, this could pave the way for yet another nostalgia hit.
As Season 2 unfolds, perhaps it’s only a matter of time until more locations are overrun by the undead. Be on the lookout for any subtle changes across Verdansk as we enter what could be our final weeks on the map.
