Just as it looked like the rumour mill for COD 2021 had completely dried up, a report published by VGC has revealed that Activision and Sledgehammer Games are going to launch a brand-new Warzone map.

The new map will launch alongside COD Vanguard, which is still on track to be released in its usual slot during Q4 of 2021.

The news comes weeks after Warzone was transported into the 1980s, finally completing its integration into the Black Ops Cold War storyline.

Warzone WW2 Map Setting & Size

According to the report, the map will be "significantly larger" than the current iteration of Verdansk, which recently expanded with the addition of new points of interest.

The map will be set in the Pacific, and is believed to be the "most ambitious" map to appear in the battle royale since it launched in March 2020.


To cater for the large size of the map, the report also mentioned that a new range of vehicles will be added into Warzone to enable players to navigate the map as fast as possible.

With the setting of World War 2, could we possibly see the additions of Jeeps, fighter planes, and tanks?!

Release Date

No official release date has been confirmed by Activision but the map will be launching alongside COD Vanguard, which will likely release in November 2021.


The map will continue to use the IW8 engine that Warzone currently runs on.

VGC also reports that both Vanguard and Warzone will "share technology" rather than having to adapt content from one title to another.

With both games utilising the same tech, there's every chance that the transition from the 1980s to World War 2 will be extremely smooth, much to the delight of fans that have grown frustrated with the amount of bugs caused by the different engines used in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
