Now Playing: New Call Of Duty Multiplayer Maps & Warzone Gulag Changes This Week - GS News Update

Reports of a new Call of Duty: Black Ops game for 2020 are flying, but it appears speculating on social media is the only way you'll get to enjoy Call of Duty online at the moment. Both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone are having server issues that are preventing people from playing.

Activision acknowledged issues on its official support Twitter on May 20, saying it's investigating an issue but not providing an explanation or timetable for servers' return. GameSpot attempted to connect to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's online servers as well as the Warzone mode within Modern Warfare and were given an error message. The campaign mode and local multiplayer aren't affected by the outage.

The outage comes just as Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare received major content updates. This included a new "classic" battle royale mode for Warzone, as well as the map Hardhat's addition in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The map was previously in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 back in 2011, and was a fan-favorite choice.

Call of Duty: Warzone appears to be changing in recent days, with previously-closed bunkers suddenly opening. It's possible this could be part of a tease for the next Black Ops game, and it bears some resemblance to the mysterious changes Epic Games routinely throws into Fortnite to keep players on their toes.
