Frequent leaky boy and Call of Duty insider TheGhostofHope has revealed on Twitter that the Warzone Resurgence maps will be cut from Warzone when Warzone 2.0 releases.
The maps, Rebirth Island and Fortunes Keep have been popular within the Call of Duty community since their introductions, so the decision is somewhat controversial.
Earlier this month, I reported on my Twitter that the original Warzone will be renamed “Warzone Caldera” following Warzone 2.0’s release. It’s my understanding that this is still the case.
Insider Gaming sources were unable to verify TheGhostofHope’s claims, but the news wouldn’t be too surprising given Warzone’s future name change. It’s understood that Warzone will continue to receive some form of support after Warzone 2.0’s release, but details on what that includes were not stated.
The move, if true, is likely to “force” people into moving over to the new game as the maps will not be removed until Warzone 2.0 is released if the claims are to be believed. Or, maybe the resurgence maps could be moved over to Warzone 2.0 at a later date.
Resurgence maps are known for their fast-paced nature, which is one of the main reasons they are preferred over the large Warzone map. The maps also offer verity, giving players the option to play multiple maps, so the change is going to be understandably controversial.
However, sources have said that a second Warzone 2.0 map is in development for both the main game and Warzone 2.0.
Warzone’s new map “Al Mazrah” will be a huge change for Warzone players, with the addition of new features including Strongholds and a mass amount of AI.
As always, take rumors and leaks with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made, but so far Infinity Ward, Raven Software, or Activision are yet to comment on the future of Warzone.
