A new game release always makes dataminers very busy. Since the time Call Of Duty Cold War trailer launched people were expecting major leaks. Exactly that has happened and the statements are tremendous. Leaks suggest Warzone will also get a zombie makeover very soon. In addition to that, Zombies are back with Call Of Duty Black Ops.
