January 18, 2023: Despite Season Two featuring a new Resurgence map, Rebirth Island WILL NOT be returning to Warzone 2.

Is Rebirth Island returning to Warzone 2? That's the question on the minds of players looking for an alternative battlefield in Call of Duty's latest battle royale experience. The sequel to Warzone comes with a brand-new map but there's no secondary option for Warzone 2 players wanting a smaller space for even more action-packed gameplay.

The first iteration of the game included Rebirth Island and proved extremely popular thanks to its faster pace and the ability to respawn thanks to the resurgence game modes. With Season One Reloaded on the horizon, some are hoping for teasers on a Warzone 2 resurgence map to appear.

Is Rebirth Island coming to Warzone 2?

At the time of writing, Rebirth Island isn't coming to Warzone 2. This might be disappointing if you're a fan of the map based on Alcatraz but Infinity Ward is planning on an alternative.

Instead of reusing the map, the developer is working on a smaller Warzone 2 map that is expected to arrive in 2023. With Season Two scheduled to begin in February, it's not long before you'll drop into an Al Mazrah alternative designed for all-out chaos.

However, there's always a chance of Infinity Ward giving you the option to take a stroll down memory lane so don't rule out the return of Rebirth Island just yet.

Warzone 2 Rebirth Island replacement

According to a recent leak, the map set to replace Rebirth Island is currently known as "Return." Located off the coast of Al Mazrah, the small island features a castle in the middle of the map in addition to a small port, beach club, and shipwreck on one of two beaches.

Additionally, the map description claims it supports resurgence gameplay in addition to Ground War and DMZ, giving fans of multiplayer and the exfil mode another map to master.

As with all leaks, take it with a pinch of salt but the map certainly looks promising if it's legitimate.

Warzone 2 resurgence release date

Assuming Return launches as part of the Season Two update, expect resurgence game modes to launch in February 2023. It may seem like a while away but it won't be long before teasers on the new map start appearing.
