The time is nigh. Or as the official Call of Duty Twitter account puts it, “The end is near…” Nukes will rain down upon Call of Duty: Warzone’s Verdansk map on April 21, 2021. That’s next week, in case you’ve lost all sense of time because of the pandemic. I know I have.
Leaked voice clips from last month first tipped us off to how Activision planned to end the season and deal with the growing zombie problem on Verdansk at the same time. A huge nuclear solution aimed straight at the zombie menace would reduce Verdansk to rubble in a Fortnite-style end-of-season event. In its place would come a new Verdansk set in the 1980s, complete with a stadium still under construction.
The 1980’s-style map would help Warzone tie into the most recent Call of Duty game a bit better since Black Ops Cold War is set in the ‘80s.
If you’re looking for a sense of what the upcoming nuclear holocaust might look like, Warzone had a glitch last week where the nukes got launched a little prematurely. Unlike normal intercontinental ballistic missiles, Verdansk’s nukes launched skyward and then came straight back down, blowing an eerily silent white fog into the distance.
Presumably the real event will have massive explosions that level the city and everyone in it, either living or undead.
We’ll find out for sure next week and whether or not Warzone will have any downtime as it makes the switch over to the next season.
Or perhaps Warzone will get shut down entirely if a brand new lawsuit goes through. Activision recently got slapped by a cease-and-desist from a web-based game that’s also coincidentally called Warzone. Fizzer, the developer of Warzone, argues that their game came first so they have the right to the name “Warzone.”
Activision has countersued, so the whole thing will play out in court eventually.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.
The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
