Call of Duty: Warzone May Remove Maps For November Sequel

Call of Duty: Warzone will reportedly be removing entire maps from the battle-royale when the new iteration of the battle-royale mode drops in November – following claims from Call of Duty insider, TheGhostofHope on social media. As reported by ComicBook, entire maps such as Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep will be removed from the current iteration of Warzone as the sequel launches in just over two months. 

It’s best to take the news, as we always do with unvalidated leaks, with a pinch of salt and await for official confirmation from the respective studio. It remains unknown at this stage if the second iteration of Warzone intends to fill any gaps, should the maps be scrapped from the new version. Removing the maps would almost certainly guarantee a decline in players dropping into Warzone.

According to a report from CharlieIntel in June 2022, Activision revealed that the free-to-play battle-royale, launched in March 2020 (how time flies), has amassed more than 125 million players since its launch. However, the figure does not account for Warzone’s current active base. 

The free-to-play aspect is arguably the mode’s unique selling point, but the battle-royale mode has expanded substantially over the last two years. The inclusion of Fortune’s Keep means players can respawn provided one teammate remains alive, while Rebirth Island limits gameplay to forty players for cramped, closed-quarters combat. 

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II will launch across all major platforms, including the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and PC via and Steam on October 28, 2022. Players who pre-order the sequel as a digital copy will receive the single-player campaign and other modes a week earlier on October 20.
