Since launching in 2020, Call of Duty Warzone has proven to be a huge success with millions of players logging into the battle royale on a regular basis.
Since switching to the Pacific island of Caldera, the game has suffered from a number of bugs and glitches, much to the annoyance of the community, and just as fans started to process Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Call of Duty's battle royale series is set to expand, according to reports. But what about a Warzone 2 release date?
The report reveals that a second Warzone title is in the works. Here's everything we know.

Warzone 2 Release Date
Initially, it was believed Warzone 2 would release alongside Modern Warfare 2 in late 2022. Contrary to reports, it appears the new era for the battle royale will begin in 2023. This would make sense if rumours of a delay to Call of Duty 2023 turn out to be true.
Warzone 2 Map
Although nothing official on the Warzone 2 map has appeared, leaks surrounding its setting and layout are emerging. Twitter user "The MW2Ghost," has recreated a rough layout of the map which shows a river running down the middle of it in addition to a number of Stronghold locations.
In addition, a report from notable leaker Tom Henderson claims at least four classic maps from 2009's Modern Warfare 2 will feature as points of interest (POI).
The current list of maps include Favela, Quarry, Afghan, and Highrise implying there's a huge variety of terrain to navigate on the new map.
Warzone 2 Developer
Within Activision Blizzard's 2021 financial results, the publisher has revealed Infinity Ward is developing a new "Warzone experience." It's likely that it could be a brand-new map for the current iteration of Warzone or the fresh start many rumours have suggested.
Warzone 2 Platforms
According to notable leaker Tom Henderson, Warzone 2 will be available on current-gen consoles and PC, meaning those with a PS4 or Xbox One won't be able to play the next Call of Duty battle royale.
Warzone 2 Leaks
On May 17, content creator 'NerosCinema' shares information they received from an unnamed source that tested Warzone 2. The video includes alleged details on a new inventory system, new points of interest on the map, and players needing to complete objectives in order to obtain a Loadout Drop.
