Call of Duty leaker claims Warzone 2 map will be based on real-life location
Warzone 2 is officially on the way but so far, we only have leaks and rumors to go on. The latest leak from TheGhostOfHope claims that Warzone 2’s “new, big map” will be heavily inspired by a real-life location.
Although it’s officially confirmed that Warzone 2.0 is in development, neither Infinity Ward nor Raven Software have revealed any details. Instead, leaks and rumors have been steadily released, teasing that Warzone 2 will be a ‘clean slate’ without any previous weapons or Operators, and could be set in the desert.
Now, renowned Call of Duty leaker TheGhostOfHope has claimed that Warzone 2’s map will take heavy inspiration from a real-life location, and it appears to tie in with details already leaked about 2022’s Modern Warfare 2.
Tweeting on April 23, TheGhostOfHope claimed: “The Warzone 2 map will heavily take inspiration from Medellin, Colombia.”
Medellín is the capital of Colombia’s Antioquia region, situated in the Andes mountain range. The area is filled with mountains and valleys, and the city itself has tall skyscrapers and dense urban areas.
According to VGC, Modern Warfare 2 will focus on “US special forces fighting a covert war against Colombian drug cartels.” Verdansk, Warzone’s original map, featured in Modern Warfare’s campaign so it’s entirely possible that Warzone 2 will connect to MW2 in a similar way.

TheGhostOfHope previously speculated that it would be set in Chile’s Atacama desert after “seeing a POI of an observatory.” They didn’t give any more info, but said: “I know more about the WZ2 map than I can say but it’s definitely in Central America.”
Of course, these are all just leaks for now. There’s no guarantee that Warzone 2’s map will be heavily influenced by Medellín, and we’re likely still several months out from its reveal.
