Black Ops 4: Blackout Map's Upcoming Update Gets Its First Teaser

Could Hijacked or Carrier be making an appearance?

Recently, there have been teases abound about a change to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout map. Since launch, it's remained relatively unchanged, aside from a fleeting dance with zombies in the Nuketown Island section of the map. That hasn't stopped players from accumulating all its easter eggs for speculation though.

Today on Twitter, Treyarch gave a more specific tease as to what's coming to Blackout. In a short GIF, a radar beacon shines around in a circle, and when it hits a specific point over the sea, a point suddenly glows. In the replies to the tweet, some fans are guessing that it could be the Carrier or Hijacked map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2; both would make sense, given that Blackout is a bunch of iconic Black Ops maps stitched together and reimagined for the battle royale landscape. Both maps, as well, take place over the ocean.

The teaser is also emblazoned with a December 11 date, signifying possibly when the Blackout update will be unleashed. Could we be seeing a Blackout update teaser during tomorrow night's Game Awards, or will Call of Duty stick to Twitter for the rest of its hints? Guess we'll wait and see.
