Warzone 2 will be adding Ashika Island to its history of maps, but after hearing the news that it could feature AI bots, players are concerned that they will “ruin” the new map.

The news was a long time coming, but not only is a Resurgence LTM heading to Warzone 2, but the game mode will be returning in the form of the fresh-faced Ashika Island locale.

The brand new map has been slowly unveiled by the devs via cryptic social media posts – until a full reveal of the destination was shown off.

Despite the initial hype for Ashika Island, a tweet from the official Call of Duty account has been spotted that has already left a sour taste in the mouth of many Warzone 2 fans.

SSyorimz brought the detail to the attention of the entire Warzone subreddit by showing the posted tweet describing Ashika Island and one of its POIs.

The official account said: “Tsuki Castle – Ashika Island. Infiltrate quickly, past the tower’s defenders, reach the hidden space.”

“It looks like resurgence is getting AI,” SSYorimz said in response to the line about castle defenders. Many players also agreed with the sentiment, sharing their concerns in the replies.

“Can we stop with the annoying AI?” asked one frustrated player, and another added: “AI will ruin resurgence.”

AI has certainly been met with controversy with its inclusion in both regular Warzone 2 combat, as well as DMZ, and adding it to Resurgence may further exacerbate the issue.

Ashika Island arrives in Warzone 2 on February 15, 2022, along with Season 2 content, so we’ll have to see if AI is added, and if it is, how much influence they will have on the flow of games.
