The original version of Verdansk in Call of Duty: Warzone will never be playable again, confirmed by Raven Software in an interview with CharlieIntel.
The map was nuked on Thursday as part of a special event. The map was then replaced with Verdansk ’84, a new take on the map which features several new locations with an ’80s-theme attached. There are those out there that believe the original map will make a comeback, but it’s looking like that won’t be the case. Developer Raven Software told CharlieIntel Verdansk is gone forever.
“The setup of Verdansk we’ve grown to love over the last year will never be playable in any form again,” CharlieIntel stated.
Honestly, this is not surprising. The developers of Warzone are likely looking to keep the battle royale fresh, and keep their player count up. Of course, it’s not out of the question for the original map to return, as another battle royale title has done this. Apex Legends brought back the original King’s Canyon map for a limited-time event.
