Twitch streamer NICKMERCS has been given the first teaser for Season 5, and it suggests a big change is coming to Call of Duty:Warzone! The clip below shows what seems to be a a train entering Verdansk. What’s more the video has the date of August 5 at the top, which seems to be the Modern Warfare Season 5 start date.
Could this mean a map-altering event for Call of Duty: Warzone players? That seems to be it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see if this nuke brings about the reveal for Call of Duty 2020 as previously rumored. Heck, Activision themselves have mentioned how Warzone will be the Call of Duty game that “connects” the different sub franchises. And, y’know, there’s a very juicy Treyarch Easter egg in Warzone too.
The wait won’t be that long, as we’ll probably be getting an announcement from Infinity Ward soon regarding the next season. It’s a toss up just how much Verdansk will be affected, and whether Activision will finally announce this year’s Call of Duty officially.
