Treyarch have recently been producing Black Ops 4 DLC 4 teasers as we gear up to the final DLC drop of the season before the release of Modern Warfare 2019; this has been continuing whilst we get closer to the start of the Modern Warfare 2019 beta. Theories are developing about how Black Ops 4 DLC 4 is set to play out, including how COD 2020 hints at the zombies storyline. We've now got a confirmed release date of 23rd September for DLC 4.

Treyarch's DLC 4 Teasers In Order
On the 4th September, Treyarch changed their Twitter profile picture to a Group 935 logo. Many have been speculating that the new Zombies map for DLC 4 will be a Call of the Dead remake.
This is backed up by the fact that Group 935 set-up research facilities near the Tunguska River in Siberia. Users have also been quick to point out that the picture also has some frost near the top, suggesting it is set in a cold environment.

TheGamingRevolution was on of the first to bring the concept of a Call of the Dead remake to our attention and he continues to believe this is the case.
Later Treyarch tweeted another teaser and confirmed that DLC 4 will be coming sometime in September.
On the 5th September, Treyarch have tweeted another teaser image with a caption. This image depicts the Primis and Ultimis crew around the campfire from the Black Ops 3 Zombies menu.
TheGamingRevolution theorises that this will be the end of element 115 and that the forest (as seen above) is the Call of the Dead map. MrDalekJD also points out that this is something that has been teased for years now, ever since Black Ops 3, that this was the finale all along. It seems like this version of Call of the Dead will be much more extensive than the original, especially as it is being depicted as the Aether. It's also worth noting that the forest appears in the Black Ops 3 campaign as well as the appearance of zombies.
On the 6th September, Treyarch puts up another teaser with the Victis crew staring at a portal allowing to travel anywhere they desire.
TheGamingRevolution believes that the Victis crew have been remove from the cryogenic chambers and have managed to travel through the portals, powered by Richtofen's blood. He also believes this gives them the means to travel to different places, revisiting old maps and will set up for DLC 5; despite those events taking place before DLC 4. MrRoflWaffles believes that we could potentially play as 12 possible characters in this map. Another theory he has is that Victis crew could be the team we play as in the final map, as they help to finish the final fight, while the other two crews participate in the battle; ending with a huge final custscene.
A new video has been posted putting the still pictures we have seen previously into video form. It was also confirmed that DLC 4 will release on the 23rd September.
Treyarch kicked off the week of the Modern Warfare 2019 beta by showing the first glimpse of gameplay in the new Zombies map. The clip's audio is of Richtofen who is creating a log entry on August 28th, 1945.
MrDalekJD points out that in the Chronorium that the test subjects arrive at the Siberian Facility for Richtofen's experiments; the Siberian Facility being Call of the Dead. This is where Ultimus Richtofen first experimented on the other 3 Ultimis characters.
They have also changed their Twitter profile to a Samantha music box, which can be found in Der Eisendrache, that we assume can be found in the new map.
Treyarch, now switching to video form teasers, display another of the camp fire from Black Ops 3 in the forest; with Dempsey talking over the top as he addresses Ultimis and Primis.
MrDalekJD believes that this scene will be viewable in DLC 4 and in fact is the location where the first meteor landed. These teasers further strengthen the case that Call of the Dead will be the next location for DLC 4.
Treyarch's next teaser is a shot of an element 115 infused waterfall in a cold environment - we assume this is Call of the Dead's waterfall in the original map.
MrDalekJD believes the voice heard in the video is Harvey Yenna, the creator of the Scavenger sniper rifle in Call of the Dead. We have heard of this character a few times in the zombies story, but never his voice. He also details that Call of the Dead is the entry point to the Aether/Agartha.
Black Ops 4 received a trophies update on PlayStation 4 revealing the map name as 'Tag Der Toten' including. Check out what trophies will be on this map here.
The Thundergun has been confirmed to be in the final DLC of the season, as teased on the Treyarch Twitter.
Treyarch's new teaser is reportedly a picture from the intro custcene. Treyarch recently confirmed that the recent trailer is simply a story trailer and not the intro cutscene for the map.
A new trailer, what could be the opening cutscene for the final zombies map, has been posted by Treyarch. In the video it show Victis in the Call of the Dead remake, Tag der Toten. Along with the Primis and Ultimis crew asleep with Zombie Richtofen talking to the Victis crew. Nikolai then asks Samantha to kill Richtofen.
