Treyarch’s upcoming Call of Duty game, set to release in 2024, will reportedly bring the return of Warzone’s original map, Verdansk.
While it admits that details remain a little hazy, Insider Gaming reckons “the current plan is to follow the traditional Warzone ‘main map’ release schedule and have Verdansk return as a part of Black Ops Gulf War Season 1”.
By examining how Activision typically schedules its releases, that suggests Verdansk will be making a comeback to the free-to-play battle royale shooter by the end of 2024.
It’s not clear what “season” the map will return in, but Insider Gaming’s source reckons it’s a “fan-favourite”.
