What happened to Rebirth Island in Warzone Pacific and is it coming back?


Rebirth Island was added to Warzone with the Black Ops Cold War integration at the end of 2020 and has quickly become very popular among players. But there have been plenty of questions over Rebirth Island in the Warzone Pacific update

The Call of Duty: Vanguard integration brought Caldera with it, a new map that players have been clamoring for for some time.

While players’ opinions of Caldera have been very much split, with top pros like Aydan even threatening to quit the game, some players’ sights have been set on Rebirth Island and its popular Resurgence mode, which many prefer over the classic BR experience in Verdansk or Caldera.

Will Rebirth be in Warzone Pacific?

The good news for Rebirth players is that it will still be in the game after the Vanguard integration, with it already arriving back in Warzone just a week after launch.

It’s not yet clear exactly how developers Raven will utilize Rebirth Island in Warzone Pacific or if they make adjustments to it over time, but it is featured on the original Vanguard x Warzone Season 1 roadmap.

When will Rebirth Island be back in Warzone?

As confirmed in the Warzone Pacific Season 1 patch notes, Rebirth Island was not in the game when Caldera first launched (except for on December 8 for Vanguard owners with early access) — but it didn’t take long to make its return.

In an update on December 16, Rebirth Island was added back to Warzone before Raven promptly removed it, explaining that they had to investigate an issue within the mode.

At the time of writing on December 17, the mode has not yet been reinstated.

Whether Rebirth Trios comes back before the next playlist update remains to be seen, but current schedule suggests that Rebirth Island will still be in on December 23, when Duos is set to replace Trios on the map. The following week, Quads will then take its place.

So, providing any issues with the map/mode get fixed, don’t expect to run out of game time on Rebirth Island any time soon.
