On the ZMan website, at numerous online retailers, even on BGG until earlier today, the contents are listed as including:

* 1 Game board
* 1 Epic-sized board, showing the world’s major cities and their status

Of course, now I've unpacked my copy I've found only one board in there, and that seems to be correct.

So why the two boards listed in the contents? Is it just a glitch, or is it a glimpse into some earlier stage of development?

The first photos of a game board had panic levels marked using a pen rather than stickers. Maybe at that stage of prototyping/playtesting all the scribbling happened on an "epic" board and actual play happened on the other?

In my heart I know a glitch is overwhelmingly the more likely explanation, but the alternative is so much more intriguing. (-8

Probably a typo. Pandemic Legacy's board is bigger than regular Pandemic's board, "epic" might be a bit of a stretch, Z-Man

Nice catch, I actually like the stickers better. I want so badly to have a fallen city!

Given the insights we already have into Rob Daviau's mind, maybe he intends us to want to play through a second time, intentionally doing badly so we get fallen cities, dead characters, box 8, etc.!

(Relatedly, I've not actually seen a rule that states what you do if you begin a game with fewer live characters than players. Presumably someone has to start the game as a civilian.)

Some people just want to see the world burn cool

Jokes aside, it would be interesting if you could at the cost of 2 panic levels, remove all cubes from a city, kinda like the missile to Raccoon city. Maybe Pandemic: World's End Legacy edition?
