Call of Duty Warzone Map Rumored for Revamp Amid Cold War Theories

Video Games Chronicles, a source that once before provided accurate information leaks for Call of Duty games, has announced that secret bunkers are key to the leaks and possible map changes.

Warzone players are now given access to the secret bunker once they acquire an access card. In addition to the regular bunkers, players are given hints on how to locate an additional bunker with the use of in-game phone messages and an activation code, but in Russian. Once players find the secret 11th bunker, they will have access to not only have new weapons but also screens showing messages in Russian, an incomplete countdown and a nuclear warhead.

These findings in the bunker are what many fans believe to be a hint that a map revamp will be coming in the form of a Cold War theme. The activation code is in Russian, the secret bunker has Russian messages and writing and a nuclear warhead in which was a major talking point in the Cold War.

Another theory is that the secret bunker is actually an Easter Egg for the upcoming Call of Duty game. Fans believe it to be a Black Ops remake as Modern Warfare 2 remastered has just been released. Fans and leaks are suggesting that the upcoming game will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

In the meantime, players can explore the bunkers and decode the Russian message to find the secret bunker. Warzone is free-to-play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
