Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 maps to be remade
There’s a good chance for some of the most popular Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 maps to be remade later this year. As many as 17 maps were leaked today and they include many of the ones played competitively in major esports competition. Firing Range and Nuketown are easy to recognize by Black Ops fans, but the list also includes other maps from the series such as Raid and Standoff. The names are slightly changed and the visual improvements are significant, so there’s a good chance for the rumored to be true.
Not only professional players, but also casual gamers have spent a lot of time playing Call of Duty on these maps. Black Ops 4 is just one of the CoD games whose maps are likely to be remade in the second half of 2018 and beyond. The list also includes a dozen of new maps, with names that don’t ring familiar even to the most dedicated players. Short descriptions of maps codenamed Airport, Crossing, Defilade, Japan, Garrison, and Rockies were made available.
Activision or Treyarch didn’t confirm or deny these rumors and so far have kept quiet about the potential leak. One of the reasons for why fans are entitled to be optimistic is that a few of the new maps were featured during the Black Ops 4 reveal event. Some of these maps listed go by the name of Blockade, Boundary, Bridgehead, Escalade, Contraband, Payload and Seaside. This makes the upcoming 2018 CWL Anaheim Open even more exciting, as it will provide answers to many of these yet unanswered questions.
