Major Black Ops 4 Blackout Map Changes Inbound, Hijacked or Carrier?

Treyarch is working really hard to make Black Ops 4 the best Call of Duty game ever. It’s also the first COD with the inclusion of battle royale mode. Treyarch recently revealed that some big Blackout map changes are incoming and now they have started teasing it.

The first teaser for these map changes in Black Ops 4 Blackout came from the official Call of Duty Twitter account. Treyarch posted a short video which showed us the Black Out map with a feed of radar.

By just looking at, there seems nothing to be changed. But there’s a blip which appears at the north of Nuketown Island. It seems like a new area is coming in the waters of Blackout map. It’s currently hard to guess if it’s a new island, a crashed ship or something else.

Since the tease, Call of Duty community has started guessing what this place really could be. Most people are guessing it to be the Hijacked map making a return in Black Ops 4 Blackout. Others are guessing it to be the Carrier map which is also one of the most requested maps in Black Ops 4.

Hijacked is the most wanted at the moment in Black Ops 4. Hijacked was originally present in Black Ops 2 and it provided some close range combats. Though Carrier on the other side will fit the military theme of Blackout in Black Ops 4 as it’s a flight deck of an aircraft carrier.

Though Both of them are happily welcome by the community. Before all of this, the Hijacked map hint came from a very popular footballer, Neymar Jr. Neymar Jr is currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain and belongs to the national team of Brazil.

Recently, Neymar Jr posted on Instagram revealing that he’s going to host a Blackout live stream soon. Now behind him in that picture, we saw a poster of the Hijacked map which tells us that it’s really going to be the new map in Black Ops 4 Blackout mode.

Now obviously it’s not confirmed so we will have to wait till December 11 to know what it really is. The video mentions December 11 which is probably going to be the date when this new area arrives in Blackout.

New Black Ops 4 update has also arrived recently. This new Black Ops 4 update brings a lot of PC-specific changes, new playlists, bug fixes and more in the game.
