The most recent Warzone playlist update introduces a slight change to the weekly adjustments. Instead of swapping a number of modes available, the battle royale will feature modes that remain in the game throughout the week, with limited-time modes (LTM) appearing during the weekend.

With Season 5 officially underway, players are dropping into the final season of the Pacific era before turning their attention to the launch of Warzone 2 which will act as a clean slate for Call of Duty’s battle royale efforts.

For the remainder of the season, Rebirth Island acts as a fast-paced alternative to the main map of Caldera. Thanks to the update, players are pleading with Raven Software to stop removing the map from the rotation.

Players want Rebirth Island to stay

The smaller landscape of Rebirth Island lends itself to a faster pace of play preferred by several members of the community. Although Fortune’s Keep maintains its place in the Warzone rotation, Reddit user ‘George_Marsh’ wants the developer to “stop taking Rebirth out of the playlist.”

“Literally half the player base don’t want to play Caldera or Fortune’s Keep,” claims the user who describes both maps as “trash.” On the other hand, several commenters say Fortune’s Keep is great. “Fortune’s Keep is decent,” says another. “It’s nice to hop on it when Rebirth gets stale.”

Although some players are desperate to see the return of Rebirth Island into the rotation, the presence of Fortune’s Keep does provide an alternative to Caldera. However, the main problem is the interference of the developer removing parts of the game that continue to maintain their popularity.

Thankfully, fans of the map won’t have to wait too long before it returns. The Warzone Trello board reveals that the map will return on August 26, with Resurgence Quads making an appearance over the weekend to facilitate.
