Earlier this month reports surfaced that Call Of Duty: Warzone would be getting a new World War II-themed map to tie into the in-development Call Of Duty: Vanguard, which is expected to launch later this year.
Based on what we've heard from multiple outlets and reliable insiders over the last few months, Vanguard is a WWII shooter from Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind 2017's Call Of Duty: WWII. While the new game has yet to be revealed as Activision chose to skip E3, it's been claimed that Warzone will be getting a brand-new map to tie into the upcoming title sooner rather than later.
Take a look at some of the best Call Of Duty wins and fails below!
A new map would obviously be a big step forward for Call Of Duty: Warzone. Developer Raven Software recently introduced the Verdansk '84 map after the original modern-day Verdansk went up in a mess of nuclear missiles and zombies, but it's been widely criticised for not feeling new enough. Verdansk '84 has plenty of new locations to explore, I should stress, but players looking for a completely overhauled Verdansk have been left disappointed.
As per the original report from VGC, the new WWII map is set to be "the series' largest and most ambitious to date," adding that there will be a significant amount to see and do. This sentiment has since been echoed by industry insider Tom Henderson, who most recently spent the last few months providing a steady stream of leaks for Battlefield 2042 that all turned out to be completely accurate.
In a tweet, Henderson compared the upcoming map to Battlefield's Firestorm battle royale mode. He teased that there'll be "limited destruction", more vehicle play, and even more players. All told, it certainly sounds like Activision really is changing up Warzone in a big way.
The more I hear about the Pacific themed Warzone map, the more I like it. It sounds like it's going to be a lot like Firestorm with limited destruction, more vehicle play and more players. They are definitely changing the formula to keep people playing. #CODVangaurd pic.twitter.com/muXsVIlvHD

It's unclear when exactly we'll see this new map launch, as Verdansk '84 has really only just gotten started. No doubt we'll learn more when Activision finally reveals Call Of Duty: Vanguard. Given it's expected to launch towards the end of 2021, an official trailer can't be too far off. Watch this space.
