Activision has teased the arrival of Zombies in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone recently. Last week, a Cold War Zombies trial machine popped up in Warzone, suggesting Zombies were on their way to the battle royale.
Black Ops Cold War developer Treyarch has also teased new Zombies content in a series of tweets.

The latest Zombies mode ending cutscene suggests Black Ops Cold War's next Zombies map is set in the Ural mountains. Black Ops Cold War has a Fireteam map called Ruka that's set in the Ural Mountains, and it has a campaign level set in Mount Yamantau, a Russian nuclear facility located within the Ural Mountains.
This all leads us towards next week's launch of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season Two, which from the looks of things will have a big Zombies influence. Season Two kicks off on 25th February 2021.
What we don't know is what type of mode Outbreak is exactly. Is it played out on a Fireteam map? Is it part of Warzone? I suspect we don't have long to find out.
