Dam Might Be Gone Soon

Rumors suggested that it'll be large and based on the open Fireteam maps from Black Ops Cold War, or maybe the Ural Mountains map from Outbreak - among plenty other possibilities. But the real leading candidate from leaks is a Verdansk 80's map that could be a big throwback for the city.

None of this is confirmed just yet, but we expect it will be revealed after the Rebirth Island Call of Duty Warzone event.
