Call of Duty: Warzone has been teasing a major zombies event for months now, and it appears that the rumored destruction of the game's map might be just around the corner. The game's social media accounts recently posted in-universe (i.e. fictional) news broadcasts that claimed that the zombie situation is under control, but on Friday the zombies overcame the TV studio itself.
A recent update moved the zombies to Verdansk's TV station to go along with the storyline, and some of them have mutated to become more resistant to bullets. There are also machines on Verdansk that indicate the percentage of zombie spread, implying that they will continue to grow as the storyline progresses. Some have speculated that the game's new "bombardment" killstreak, which unleashes a cluster bomb on an entire area of the map, might be used as part of the anti-zombie initiative.

The new header image on Warzone's official site and the slogan "the end begins" certainly suggests that there will be some kind of reckoning that involves the zombies. Rumors and reports have long claimed that Verdansk will soon be destroyed as part of this zombie event, possibly by a nuclear explosion, in order to make room for a '80s themed map to go along with Black Ops Cold War.
