A Call of Duty leaker says Treyarch plans to add two fan-favorite maps from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 when Black Ops Cold War launches Season 5.

Leaker TheMW2Ghost of Call of Duty news site ModernWarzone.com says Treyarch will remaster one of or both Yemen and Plaza from Black Ops 2, bringing them back for players to re-experience in Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer modes.

"Should be seeing Yemen and/or Plaza for Season 5," MW2Ghost tweeted Saturday. He did not provide evidence for his claim or describe his sources.

Yemen was a close-quarters map, set in the streets and alleys of the city of the same name in the year 2025. Plaza placed players in a shopping mall and resort floating in the Indian Ocean, also in the year 2025. Moving these maps to Black Ops Cold War would require turning the clock back on them by several decades, allowing Treyarch plenty of leeway to change their appearances.

Black Ops Cold War has previously remade several Black Ops maps, including Nuketown as Nuketown '84, Raid, Express, Standoff, Hijacked and Rush.

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 launched June 17, and the season's battle pass indicates Season 5will launch Aug. 10.
