Surprisingly, all these teasers did not lead to an actual in-game event. Instead, players could unlock an ending cut-scene for Warzone by completing the latest intel. Even though such an event seems like a far-off possibility now, a trusted insider feels differently.

In a recent tweet, Modern Warzone claimed Verdansk will still go through a nuclear attack that will extirpate it. However, there seems to be no concrete source for the information.
