Call of Duty
Yesterday, the Call of Duty community came together in a way that it hasn’t in some time. Millions of fans were joining influencers’ streams in hopes of solving the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War easter egg. Eventually, after several hours, the hunt was complete and fans were left with a single website and image. This website, pawntakespawn.com/tv, is a clue as to when the next easter egg will commence, being August 14 at 12:00 ET. However, in addition to that, another teaser seems to show that Call of Duty: Warzone isn’t going anywhere.
Warzone confirmed for Black Ops Cold War
Previously, we heard rumors and leaks that Warzone would return for the next title in the series. This was later confirmed by Activision but we still weren’t given a ton of details on Warzone‘s inclusion. Activision seemingly wants everything about the 2020 title to be as secretive as possible.
However, the publishers did throw the community a bone on the newfound website. In the background, behind the television and phone, we can see a faint image of a map. It’s not visible at first glance, but if we turn the brightness up on the image, it becomes much clearer.
Though it’s hard to see, the map is indeed an inverted and flipped look at the Warzone map of Verdansk. Activision seems to be confirming that the battle royale will indeed be included in Black Ops Cold War in some capacity.
Presumably, this means that Verdansk will transform to match the setting of the new game. So we could see a majority of locations on the map turn into snowy, Cold War-style locales. This part of the teaser is unconfirmed but does seem fairly likely.
Perhaps we’ll see another teaser for Call of Duty: Warzone when the next easter egg begins. We’ll be sure to update you if that happens here at Daily Esports.
