A new CoD: Warzone map has been leaked by way of a teaser video for Modern Warfare Season 4.

The supposed map is named ‘Urzikstan’ and is in some way related to the game’s current map, Verdansk.

Judging from the leaked video, the location seems to be in close proximity to Verdansk, as the clip begins with a shot of the town on a map that slowly pans over to the potentially new Warzone arena.

In addition, the clip shows various red dots that pop up in some sort of pattern around Verdansk, leading fans and players to speculate their meaning.

Keep in mind that the details and specifics of a potentially new Warzone map have not been revealed, as it could be some time until the map actually makes it onto the live servers.

These new leaks for Warzone come in the wake of more surrounding a potentially new CoD game coming later in 2020 based around the Vietnam War.

However, with Season 3 of Modern Warfare still being in its early phases, and Season 4 obviously being around the corner in light of these recent teasers, it may be too early to start thinking about a mainstream CoD release.

It’s even going to be a while until Season 4 of Modern Warfare comes to fruition, so it may be some time until the mystery of the leaks are solved.

When put into context and associated with the already existing ties to Verdansk and Warzone as a whole, it’s starting to become clear that there may be some links between Urzikstan and a potentially new map coming in Season 4.

It’s safe to assume that there’s still plenty of time between now and an official announcement regarding these leaks.

Normally, Modern Warfare’s seasons have lasted approximately two months each. Considering how Season 3 kicked off about three weeks ago, we might not see S4 – and potentially this new map – until the first week of June, at the earliest.

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.
