Call of Duty: Warzone players eagerly awaiting the return of Verdansk will have to exercise a bit more patience. Recent credible leaks suggest that the iconic map’s reintroduction, initially anticipated with the launch of Black Ops 6 in 2024, has been pushed back to 2025.

Delayed Reintroduction of Verdansk

Despite earlier speculations and fan expectations, Verdansk will not be making its comeback during the initial rollout of Black Ops 6. Instead, developers are focusing on enhancing the gameplay experience within Urzikstan, the current primary map for Warzone.

Updates are planned for various points of interest (POIs) and the introduction of a Ranked Play mode to keep the gameplay fresh and engaging throughout the game’s lifecycle.


Introducing “Area 99”

In lieu of Verdansk, Treyarch is preparing to introduce a new Resurgence map titled “Area 99″ during Black Ops 6’s live seasons. This new map is rumored to be set within a clandestine U.S. facility, promising a unique and thrilling environment for players to explore and conquer.
