Warzone leak claims new ‘Red Door’ fast travel system coming to Verdansk ’84

A new fast travel system has reportedly been leaked for Warzone, in which players traverse Verdansk ’84 through ‘Red Doors.’

A Call of Duty: Warzone survey has reportedly revealed that a new fast travel system is coming to Verdansk ’84, where players travel through ‘Red Doors’ throughout the map in Season 3.

We’re now well into Warzone Season 3, and players are becoming used to the new Verdansk ’84 map. Luckily, game-breaking bugs have been fixed, with players no longer able to glitch under the map and the “Hunt for Adler” event progress tracking.

Following this major overhaul to Warzone’s map, Activision reportedly sent out a survey on April 28 asking players which parts of Verdansk ’84 they most enjoy. Choices included: lighting changes, updated POIs, and also mentioned a new fast travel system that isn’t in the game yet.

The top option in this section listed “The Red Doors (new fast travel system),” which currently isn’t in the game, but could arrive later.

Warzone players were first treated to a fast travel system in Modern Warfare Season 6 with the Subway system. The doors to the Subway stations opened up and players could use the underground train to fast travel around the map.

With Warzone players traveling back in time to the 1980s, this Subway system hasn’t been built yet, so there is no fast travel system as of the start of Season 3, but it seems the Red Doors will be taking its place.

Red Doors have been a theme throughout Black Ops Cold War, with the game’s internal alpha codenamed ‘The Red Door,’ it being a recurring theme of the campaign, and one appearing in the Verdansk ’84 cutscene.

The Red Doors appear to be connected to Cold War’s campaign, so they would further the integrate Cold War and Warzone’s story, which has now fully overlapped.

There’s no word on how this fast travel system will work, but we can hazard a guess they’ll be connected in a similar way to the Subway stops.

It’s possible this system was designed for the launch of Season 3 and Verdansk ’84 but was scrapped ahead of launch – so it’s worth taking this news with a pinch of salt.

However, with Black Ops Cold War and Warzone set to release Season 3 Reloaded as the mid-season update, in which new weapons, Operators, and multiplayer maps arrive, it’s possible the Red Door fast travel system will arrive then. Or, it could arrive in a later season in a similar vein to the Subway stations opening up.

Warzone under map exploit

Activision appears to have re-confirmed in a new social post about careers available at the company that Call of Duty: Warzone is in development for mobile devices including iOS and Android.

The company posted a message last week on their official LinkedIn page regarding Mobile job listings available within the company. This message appears to confirm that Call of Duty: Warzone is in development for mobile devices.

“Activision Mobile has put up new roles! Teams are focused on Live Operations and content expansion across CoD Mobile and Warzone,” says the message posted to the LinkedIn page. It also states that the “dev teams are dedicated to mobile and comprised of all major disciplines” including production, engineering, art, design, and marketing.

A screenshot of the post is below:

This is not the first time that Activision has mentioned Call of Duty: Warzone being in development for mobile devices.

Back in September 2020, Activision posted a job listing for “Executive Producer, Mobile” which stated that this person would work to bring “Warzone’s features” to mobile devices.

The job listing specifically said that this role would be focused on how to “harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.” After the listing was widely reported on, Activision deleted it from their site.

And, back in March 2021, Activision sent out a survey about Call of Duty: Mobile and had references to Warzone and Verdansk coming to the mobile game.

Activision has been on a hiring spree recently, with openings in numerous areas of their business including mobile. The company has over 50 job listings on their website currently specifically for mobile developers to work on a new “mobile title” at the company.

It also appears Activision might be investing in a mobile development team at Beenox, their studio based out of Quebec, Canada. Multiple new job listings are their site for mobile developers are based in the Beenox studio. Beenox as a studio has been contributing to Call of Duty as the lead PC developers for the franchise, and has contributed to Warzone’s development.

Activision currently has one mobile game, Call of Duty: Mobile. The title recently passed 500 million downloads. The title is developed by TiMi Studios, a Tencent owned studio, and published by Activision. With Activision expanding its in house mobile development team, it looks like the company wants to become a mobile powerhouse internally versus relying on external partners.

The company’s executives confirmed they are focused on mobile games alongside their console & PC development. Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick mentioned during the company’s May 4th investor call that they want to expand their player base to over 1 billion players, and mobile games are part of that approach.

Activision has not officially announced Call of Duty: Warzone for mobile as of now.

Activision cuts ties with voice actor of Ghost, Jeff Leach, after sexist comments resurface

Activision ends relations with the re-casted voice actor behind Ghost.

Published

Activision has cut all ties with Jeff Leach, the voice actor behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Ghost Operator, after sexist comments made by Leach resurfaced on social media.

Jeff Leach was the voice actor behind the Ghost character in Modern Warfare 2019 and Warzone. The entire original Modern Warfare cast was re-casted for the 2019 reboot, and Leach voiced Ghost when the character was added as an operator in Season 2 in February 2020.

The news of Activision ending their working relationship with Leach comes as sexist comments made by Jeff Leach have resurfaced online after streamers and community members were questioning why Leach still had partners within the industry.

A Twitter thread posted shows sexist comments Leach made about streamer ZombiUnicorn in 2017, as well as other more recent comments during a stream on Facebook Gaming, and asked why he still has partnerships with Facebook Gaming and Activision.

Leach has been streaming on Facebook Gaming as an official partner in 2020 and has been frequently streaming Warzone.

One of the clips shows Leach, while playing Call of Duty: Warzone, saying, “I love how it’s always like some dirty, dirty, gross f**king looking emo b**ch who looks like she f**king has no chance of getting a bit of d**k in her.”

These clips are believed to be from a live stream that occurred in December 2020.

ZombiUnicorn since replied in their own video response on Twitter, asking why Facebook and Activision still have partnerships with Leach.

In a new statement sent to CharlieIntel on May 8th, Activision says they have ended all working relationships with Jeff Leach and “condemn” all of his remarks.

Sexism has no place in our industry, our games or in society,” Activision says in a new statement. “Activision is no longer working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We are committed to delivering a fun and safe experience for all players.”

Facebook Gaming has not commented on Jeff Leach’s comments at this time.

What this means for the future of Ghost Operator in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone remains to be seen and was not addressed in this statement.

Raven Software teased in the latest set of patch notes for Warzone that an equivalent to a popular Modern Warfare sniper attachment could be coming to Black Ops Cold War snipers in the Call of Duty battle royale.

May 7, 2021, was an exciting day for Warzone, as Raven Software applied the latest update to the game that made a significant amount of changes.

The Warzone developers also took the time to tease some upcoming changes to Modern Warfare weapons and the mysterious arrival of a Black Ops Cold War version of a fan-favorite Modern Warfare sniper attachment.

This tease of a Black Ops Cold War version of an “immensely popular” Modern Warfare sniper attachment came under the changes for Combat Recon barrels for Black Ops Cold War snipers in the May 7, 2021, Warzone patch notes.

“As we continue assess the place of Cold War snipers within Warzone, we realize there is much work to be done. In addition to improving the overall efficacy of these weapons and attachments, we will also be taking a close look at their optics,” said Raven Software.

“This includes addressing attachment pros where there are few, if any, use cases,” Raven Software continued. “In specific… we may see a Cold War equivalent to an immensely popular Modern Warfare sniper attachment very soon.”

It remains to be seen what Modern Warfare sniper attachment Raven Software is teasing could potentially come to Black Ops Cold War snipers.

The developer made a specific reference to the optics of the Cold War snipers, so perhaps an equivalent of a Modern Warfare optic for the long-range weapons could be coming to the Black Ops ones.

Still, there is also a possibility that it could be a Cold War version of the popular Modern Warfare tac laser attachment.

We will update this article with any new information regarding what this possible mysterious Cold War version of a popular Modern Warfare sniper attachment could when new information is made available.
