Modern Warfare leaker claims to reveal size of Warzone battle royale map

Call of Duty players are looking forward to the reveal of Modern Warfare‘s Warzone battle royale mode, which is expected to be confirmed soon, and one leaker might have shown off the size of the map ahead of schedule. 

Members of the CoD community was hoping that Infinity Ward would answer their prayers by revealing a brand new BR mode for their first-person shooter game with the launch of Season 2, but it never turned out that way.

Instead, a classified mode – immediately locked and not ready for action – was instead included in the update, leaving fans chomping at the bit for more answers. Now, though, one leaker claims to have an inside scoop on the size of the map and it may surprise you.

It looks to be only a matter of time before Modern Warfare gets a Blackout-style mode.

ModernWarzone has posted a photo on social media, the official Twitter account of the Modern Warzone subreddit, comparing both the new map and that of Blackout in Black Ops 4, showing just how big the Warzone one may be in comparison to the home of Call of Duty’s first battle royale.

It’s not often that we see the same maps appear in games developed by Infinity Ward and Treyarch, although that could all be about to change according to this source.

Most battle royale games are limited to around 100 players per session, but if this is anything to go by – along with the original leak, posted in November 2019, suggesting it will have 200 players – it looks likely that CoD could be one of, if not the, biggest battle royale around.

The map doesn’t show any named locations that may be coming, although it does appear to include an extended coastline, a huge stadium-like structure to the East and even a landing strip to the North – which could be a hint towards planes joining the action. Helicopters were included in the original Blackout game mode.

Nothing has actually been confirmed for Modern Warfare’s classified mode and that’s worth noting, because leaked information isn’t always accurate and even when it is, developers tend to tweak things continuously until release anyway.

There has, however, been a teaser trailer revealed, hinting at the imminent arrival of a battle royale mode, as well as leaked gameplay and images that have been struck down by the developers.

Whether the next Call of Duty battle royale mode will be played on a larger map than Blackout or not remains to be seen, but some fans will certainly be crossing their fingers for something along those lines coming to fruition.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
