New Season 3 Reloaded Cinematic Confirms Adler Has Been Brainwashed

Season 3 Reloaded for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is now underway after mid-season updates arrived across all platforms. Alongside the addition of the 80s action heroes theme, a brand-new cinematic cutscene showing the latest development in the conflict between the CIA's Adler and Soviet fugitive Stitch has been revealed.

The cinematic trailers during the Black Ops Cold War cycle have been used to set the scene for upcoming seasons, and this latest trailer is no different.

Prior to the start of Season 3 Reloaded, a fan theory suggesting that Adler has been brainwashed, explaining the time-travel back to 1984 for Warzone, may have some truth behind it after all.

Here's everything we know about the potential brainwashing of Adler and what it could mean for Season 4.

The previous cinematic trailer saw Adler in the hands of Stitch after capturing him at The Pines shopping mall all the way back in Season 2.

The newest trailer shows Woods managing to rescue Adler from Verdansk but just a few seconds later, Stitch states that his "work with him is done," suggesting he may have been brainwashed in a similar way to how Alex Mason was brainwashed back in the first Black Ops title.

Alongside Adler being brainwashed, the trailer shows Stitch and Wraith detailing the next stage of their master plan.

There is a mention of Africa along with some kind of interference happening with Soviet satellites. Does Warzone's Array play a part in the story? Will a new multiplayer map set in Africa arrive? We will have to wait and see.
