"Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" Season 5 would reportedly introduce new maps in the upcoming season of the hit first-person shooter title from Treyarch and Raven Software, according to a recent leak.

The latest information about "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" came from reliable industry insider TheMW2Ghost.

These maps first appeared in "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" and have not yet been released in any other installment of the franchise.

The arrival of these maps in the game would definitely be a burst of nostalgia for seasoned "Call of Duty" players. Unfortunately, the insider did not reveal much about these maps. Right now, it is not clear if fans would see the original version of the maps in the game or if Treyarch and Raven Software would tweak the maps' environments.

Fans have been requesting game developers to launch their favorite game modes and maps in the game over the past few months. Players would definitely love the arrival of the Yemen and/or Plaza maps in "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War." If the leak is accurate, these maps would become iconic in the game's multiplayer environment. Whatever the case, it would be interesting to see more remastered maps release in the hit first-person shooter title.

These maps feature direct pathways, sharp corners and a few overwatch points that make them complex yet streamline locations for a more immersive combat experience. Neither the game publisher Activision nor Treyarch has confirmed the arrival of these maps in "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War."

In the absence of an official confirmation, these details are highly speculative at this stage.

"Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" was released in November 2020. The game is currently available on various gaming platforms. This includes PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows.
