A popular Call of Duty leaker has declared that Hijacked– the infamous Black Ops II map– will be making a return in Black Ops Cold War Season 4.
It will not be the first time Hijacked has been remastered– it returned as Skyjacked in 2015’s Black Ops III. It would be the first time it has returned in a boots-on-the-ground game, however.
Despite a relatively good track record for accurate leaks, the implementation of Hijacked remains unofficial until either Treyarch or Activision confirm it.
Going off the maps we’ve currently seen return and Hijacked’s appeal, it certainly appears possible.
Black Ops Cold War has, like current versions in the Call of Duty franchise, seen several fan-favorite maps from past titles included. While the maps in Treyarch’s 2020 installment have actually usually been considered solid, the CDL’s competitive maps have grown to be a growing number of influenced by historical maps.
We saw Black Ops II’s Standoff drop as part of Season 3 Reloaded, while Raid, Express, and Nuketown all dropped in previous seasons. All four of those maps have been incorporated into the game’s multiplayer, and it looks like a 4th could be on the method.

According to TheMW2Ghost, who has shared trustworthy information in the past, Hijacked will be re-skinned and released as part of Season 4’s material. The map, set on a seized cruise liner in international waters, was a fan favorite in Black Ops II.
Its small design lent itself to hectic gameplay, and it became thought about one of the best CoD maps ever made.
In a May 22 tweet, the leaker tweeted what appears to be a quote from a source, which checks out: “90% sure Hijacked is coming [to Cold War] next season.” They followed the tweet up to state that another “surprise” remaster is also expected, similar to the reveal of Express earlier in Cold War’s life-cycle.
Should be at least another surprise random remaster too (like Express)
