Building 21, the headliner of the new DMZ content in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded, has had an interesting opening debut in recent days, to say the least.

Heralded pre-launch as a higher-stakes area for those invested in what DMZ has offered thus far, access to Building 21 was seemingly nowhere to be found in-game at the release of Season 1 Reloaded until it opened five days later. Now, it appears Building 21 has been removed from the game once again.

As such, here's a breakdown of when Building 21 is set to return in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.

On Dec. 20, Infinity Ward announced on Twitter that Building 21 has entered "lockdown" after "significant infiltration," effectively closing access to the map.

Although it remains strange as to why the devs would decide to put a pause on visits to the game's newest map, they did mention that it would be operational once again "within the week."

Ultimately, there fortunately is a way to tell when Building 21 will be back in Warzone 2. In game, players can simply go to the DMZ mode and find a timer that states the playlist will be back on Saturday, Dec. 24, at approximately 12 a.m. ET.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen when some of the other temporarily disabled content will return to Warzone 2, including Bomb Drones and the Heavy Chopper.
