The transition of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War into Warzone has been relatively smooth for Activision. Players have now adapted to the new weapons in the game and are slowly getting accustomed to its mechanics as well.

Now, according to several reports, Warzone is getting yet another map that will possibly arrive with the next update.

It was more like an extension of Alcatraz, which has its own separate identity. Now, reports suggest that a new map is on the cards and it was right under the players’ noses.
