Warzone is receiving a major update at the tail end of 2023, as the launch of Modern Warfare 3 brings a whole new field of play to the Call of Duty ecosystem. This includes a whole new battle royale map and significant movement changes, among other things, but which maps will be in the game when it comes out?

At COD Next, Activision revealed both Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer and the brand-new Warzone experience that players will get to hop into in early December.

Not only did players get to see how the new map, Urzikstan, plays, but there was also news regarding which maps would be playable in Warzone at launch — as well as some classics coming back in the new year.

Here’s everything we know on MW3 Warzone maps so far.


MW3 Warzone launch maps

At launch, MW3’s Warzone integration will have the battle royale, resurgence, and Plunder modes across three maps. Those maps will be:

  • Urzikstan
  • Vondel
  • Ashika Island

The game will launch with Season 1 of Modern Warfare 3, so expect these maps and modes to be playable in early to mid-December.

Old Warzone maps returning

Not only are the three maps above going to be in the new Warzone, but there will be more to come down the line — including two classic maps that Warzone 1 players will love.

As promised during COD Next, in 2024, Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep will make their grand returns to the Call of Duty battle royale, though details on their returns are scarce right now.

Will Verdansk come back?

At the time of writing, there has been no suggestion that Verdansk will come back to Warzone, though it will be available in Warzone Mobile, alongside Rebirth Island.

Many players have speculated that since a number of Campaign missions will have Verdansk locations, and they have been seen in some of the art and trailers from the game, that the developers must be gearing up to re-introduce Verdansk at a later date.
