Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone will launch this week, and is almost certainly bringing a new large-scale zombies mode along with it. Players who enjoyed the Zombie Royale limited-time mode that premiered last fall will once again have the ability to fight both live and undead opponents, although it is not confirmed how this new game mode will operate.

Earlier this month, Call of Duty developers mistakenly leaked a new zombies game mode for
Black Ops Cold War called Outbreak. The new mode was accidentally shown in a trailer for Season 2, only to be deleted shortly thereafter - thus confirming what we now know.

The new Zombies game mode for Warzone has been hinted at a few times in Season 1, with the predominant teasers being a machine commanding players to ‘activate zombies,' and familiar static effects displaying on players’ screens.

While not officially confirmed by the developers, one Reddit user named Funbun71 discovered a new calling card in Black Ops Cold War that only unlocks after eight zombies are killed before the first circle closes in Warzone. With the uncertainty of how this mode Zombie mode will be executed, some users commented that they worry the new mode will be reminiscent of Blackout's unpopular "Pandemic" Zombie Royale.

Other calling cards have Warzone-Zombie requirements for unlocks as well, such as killing Zombies rapidly two or more times twice and eliminating eight Zombies with shotguns. These calling cards all confirm that Zombies will return to Verdansk, and with Season 2 launching later this week we are almost guaranteed to be fighting the undead once more in the near future.
