Update: It did not last long. The trailer that was originally built into the report below has been taken down. We have replaced it with a few steps of the advertisement, but it does not matter how long the will stay up.
Call of Duty Warzone season 3’s new map has allegedly leaked in an unfinished live-action commercial featuring celebrities such as Young Thug and Jack Harlow.
The trailer, which was first shared by On Thin Ice, shows a preview of what appears to be an 80’s Verdansk, rather than a completely new map. Long-standing rumors claimed that an upcoming Warzone nuke event would lead to a drastically different map, but what we see in the TV spot below seems to have the same general design of the current Verdansk map, but with landmarks from the Cold War and an 80s filter.
Although VGC is still unconfirmed at the time of writing, it reports that the footage and trailer are true depictions of Warzone season 3̵

Many of the places in the trailer look like twists on existing sights in Verdansk – the stadium seems to be still under construction, there is a bridge instead of the dam, and the center has an aesthetic from the 80s, for example – but you can also see some new sites. VGC notes a new mine shaft area and what looks like the Duga-2 Radar Array from Black Ops Cold War’s Ashes to Ashes mission.
We have long suspected that Warzone’s merger with Black Ops Cold War would lead to a map with a theme for the Cold War, but it was not clear whether it would simply be a new version of Verdansk or a completely new map. A dominant theory is that the new map will take place in the Black Ops Ural Mountains during the Cold War, and nothing here necessarily robs that theory. As one Redditor points out, it is possible that the new Verdansk will be expanded to include new areas from the Ural Mountains.
Warzone season 3 does not have an official start date yet, but since the current Battle Pass is set to expire on April 21, you can expect the new season to pick up the same day or the day after.
