What's Next?

Looking back at the Call of Duty Season 4 content roadmap, there's actually a lot of stuff still to come from both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

For starters, there are still two more Operators to come: Salah and Weaver. We are expecting to see Salah added to the Store rotation today and Weaver to arrive sometime over the next month.

In addition to this, there's a new game mode worth mentioning...

Capture The Flag is due to return to Black Ops Cold War in triumphant fashion in Season 4 and here's what Treyarch had to say about the mode.

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 Capture The Flag Playlist Update June 24

GET GOING, SOLDIER - Standing around with a neutral flag is a bad idea
" An objective mode whose roots stem from the very first Call of Duty Multiplayer experience, Capture the Flag (CTF) is a competitive game where squads must take the enemy’s flag and return it to their home base, while also defending theirs from the enemy team.
" A flag will not be captured unless a team’s own flag is safe in their base, so squads must have both a good offence and defence to win the match.
Prepare for some CTF later in Season Four, where it will have its own featured playlist with plenty of 6v6 maps in the rotation."

We could see it today, but it might also crop up next week.
