Call of Duty: Warzone is synonymous with Verdansk. The Eastern European-inspired arena of death received a significant update with Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, but reports suggest that players could be in for an even more significant change when the next Call of Duty title releases. Cold War took Verdansk back to the 80s, but we could be seeing a Warzone WW2 map arrive at the end of the year.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is currently set for a November 2021 release, and based on Cold War’s launch, everyone expects it to change the face of Warzone as we know it. However, VGC reports that Vanguard’s Second World War-era setting will translate into an even bigger change than anyone expected: a Pacific map for the battle royale mode.

What does this mean for Call of Duty’s leading mass-multiplayer offering? Will Warzone continue to be one of the best battle royale games? How will a Warzone WW2 map even be introduced to the game? These are questions that we’re all asking, but we might already have a few answers.

Here’s everything we know about the new Warzone WW2 map:

Warzone WW2 map setting

The Warzone WW2 map will be set in the Pacific, according to VGC. Time in Warzone continues to flow backwards as Call of Duty: Vanguard, and therefore the Warzone update to accompany it, will be set during the Second World War.

This comes at the same time as competitor Battlefield switches from a historical to a futuristic setting with Battlefield 2042.

Warzone WW2 map release date

The Warzone WW2 map will be released in November 2021, at the same time as Call of Duty: Vanguard, if Activision follows the same protocol as with Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War. However, we can expect to get teasers well before then, and World War 2 crossovers, easter eggs, and references could start popping up in Verdansk in the near future.

The Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 trailer premieres during the Summer Games Fest Kickoff livestream on June 10 at 11:00 PT, so we could see our first teasers then.

Warzone WW2 map size

The Warzone WW2 map will be “significantly larger” than Verdansk, according to VGC. To compensate for this, more vehicles are being added to the game, so players can get around more easily. We wouldn’t be surprised to see some boats added, as the Pacific Island setting suggests water could play a large role in the game.

That’s everything we know about the Warzone WW2 map so far, but we’ll keep this page updated with every leak, teaser, and trailer that we find. For now, you’re best off readying the best Warzone guns and checking your loadouts – although that could all change, too.
