Treyarch announced a new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War map, Miami Strike, revamping how players take on the streets of the city.

Miami is a polarizing map in Black Ops Cold War. Some enjoy the layout of the map for public matches, other criticize how unnecessary areas are and the nighttime setting. Treyarch is changing both of those common criticisms with this Strike version.

Other Strike editions are already prevalent in Black Ops Cold War. Armada and Crossroads Strike are condensed versions of Fireteam maps. This is the first time a traditional multiplayer map is receiving a Strike version.

The layout appears to remove the giant hotel and reduce docks and beachside areas. Not much is shown of the actual map in Treyarch's teaser outside of the sunny setting, the front of the Piano building and the back garage alley.

Treyarch announced that this is a 6-v-6 map and is predicated on close-quarters combat. It will also feature in a new 24/7 playlist coming next week. It's assumed this map release will coincide with the release of Season 2 Reloaded, but that content drop hasn't been confirmed yet by Treyarch.

Rumors started circulating this week around the Call of Duty 2021 title. It is reportedly set during World War II and developed by Sledgehammer Games. It is rumored to be called WWII: Vanguard and it might take place in an alternate timeline.
