Zombies returning is big for fans of the game mode, and a new Warzone 2 map aligns with Call of Duty: Vanguard’s release when it introduced Warzone Pacific and Caldera. Each Call of Duty title, since Warzone’s 2020 launch, has included a new map with a new main series entry.

According to Henderson, the map will be called Las Almas. The same map from the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. It will launch with Season 1 which reportedly starts Dec. 5, 2023. According to Henderson’s report, the new Zombies mode is, “essentially an Outbreak 2.0.” The developer is reportedly considering whether to include it as part of COD 2023 or release it as a standalone, free-to-play experience.
