Splyce Announce Another Major Roster Change as ‘Joshh’ Declares Free Agency

Veteran Call of Duty pro player Joshua Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard has declared free agency ahead of the Black Ops 4 CWL season.

The longtime EU competitor is the second Splyce player to leave the org in as many days, with former teammate ‘MadCat’ announcing his departure the day before.

Joshh announced that he is no longer a member of Splyce via a tweet he posted on August 24.

I’m no longer apart of @Splyce, it’s been a disappointing few months but the situation was never ideal for anyone involved.
I wish them all the best especially the players @Bance, @jurd and @MadCat, I’m excited to get back playing at a new home with a new challenge.

Joshh joined Splyce from Red Reserve during the May roster change window, marking the second time he had played for the org after a long, two year stint from 2015-2017.

However, his arrival did not do much to help improve Splyce’s results, as the team failed to place higher than top-12 in the three events since the roster change, including a poor 17-24 placing at CWL Champs.

While Joshh will likely have some suitors this off-season, he may find it difficult to join a team that could qualify for the Pro League.

Splyce will also need to do some heavy recruiting of their own, as their roster now consists of only Ben ‘Bance’ Bance and Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

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.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

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.
