Rebirth Island was a fan-favorite in the original Warzone, but is the popular Resurgence map making its way to Warzone 2? Here’s everything we know so far.

Although Al Mazrah and Ashika Island have been relatively well-received since their debut in Warzone 2, players are always desperate for new maps to come and shake things up. Leaks have hinted at new Las Almas and Vondel maps, but there are also some classic Warzone battlegrounds fans want to see return.

One of these is the popular Rebirth Island, Warzone’s first-ever Resurgence map based on Alcatraz Island which became an instant hit in the original game.

So, is Rebirth Island coming to Warzone 2? Here’s everything we know so far.

Will Rebirth Island arrive in Warzone 2?

The developers are yet to announce if Rebirth Island is coming to Warzone 2, so it’s currently unclear if the Resurgence map is in their plans. That being said, leaks have suggested that Rebirth could come at a later date.

On May 19, CoD streamer ModernWarzone shared that “dataminers have found references to Rebirth Island” in the files for Modern Warfare 2, alongside a nighttime version of Al Mazrah. The news got many players excited that Rebirth Island could join Ashika Island in Warzone 2, much like Fortune’s Keep during Warzone 1.

However, the leaker clarified that Rebirth Island could easily be planned for Warzone Mobile rather than Warzone 2. We already know that the original Verdansk will serve as the battle royale map, so it wouldn’t be a surprise for Rebirth to be the mobile game’s Resurgence map at launch.

This may come as a disappointment to players who were furious when it was announced that Rebirth Island wouldn’t be playable once Warzone 2 launched, but it appears that the fan-favorite map will be returning down the line in one form or another.

Only time will tell if the reference in MW2’s game files means that Rebirth Island is coming to Warzone 2, but we’ll be sure to update this page with the latest information.
