  • A new leak offered information about "Call of Duty 2021" DLC
  • Activision has not yet officially revealed the game

Information about the highly anticipated "Call of Duty 2021" is scarce but if the latest leak is to believe, it seems that Sledgehammer Games is planning to roll out "Zombies Chronicles" as downloadable content (DLC) this year. 

The latest details about "Call of Duty 2021" came from industry insider Tom Henderson. In a recent report, the insider claims the "Zombies Chronicles 2" has been in development for several years and most of the map has already been completed. 

The  information reportedly surfaced "a couple of months ago when a rumor circulated on the internet that the Berlin zombies map, which we now know is called Mauer Det Toten was going to be the last zombies' map for Black Ops Cold War." The insider added, "I publically shot down those rumors and stated one more map is to come and that Zombies Chronicles 2 maps are ready to go, whenever they are needed."

Henderson said Treyarch and Activision could release the maps during the life cycle of  "Call of Duty 2021" as DLC to help win gamers. 

The insider also suggested "Zombies Chronicles 2" expansion could release in "mid-2022 and the DLC might be a paid content.

"It's also unlikely that Zombies Chronicles 2 will be free to play too, as the potential for a big payday would be huge for such a large amount of downloadable content," said Henderson. "'Zombies Chronicles 2' is a huge asset for the publisher to have for the 'Call of Duty' franchise."

"Zombies Chronicles" featured eight remastered maps. These zombies maps are Nacht der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa, Kino der Toten, Ascension, Shangri-La, Moon and Origins.

Activision previously assured fans that "Call of Duty 2021" was on track with its schedule. Unfortunately, the game has not been officially revealed as of yet. Rumors have it that the game will be set in World War II. 

Recently, Activision confirmed the upcoming series installment will feature a setting that fans "know and love." The game will also support co-op, multiplayer and campaign modes. 

"Call of Duty 2021" is rumored to launch on previous generation and new generation gaming consoles, as well as on PC. The game is anticipated to release sometime in Q4 2021.
