Warzone 2 Leak Suggests Map Will Have Desert Setting

Activision has confirmed that a new Warzone experience is on the way, and new leaks suggest that it will feature a map set in the desert.


Activision is pushing hard on the call of duty license this year, with not one but two new games on the way in 2022. The first is the sequel to the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot, presumably called Modern Warfare 2and the other will be Call of Duty: Warzone 2.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 will of course be the direct sequel to the series’ popular and free-to-play battle royale multiplayer game. It’s a standalone product and so presumably will be Warzone 2, although as with the previous release, it’s being built as a companion. It will feature a new game engine as well as a “sandbox mode” that will presumably allow some customization of matches.

One other thing gamers do know about the upcoming title is that Warzone 2 will be skipping PS4 and Xbox One completely. While this may be upsetting news for gamers who haven’t been able to acquire a next-gen system just yet, it’s good news for those who want to see a game that uses the latest tech. By cutting out the old consoles the studio can work at perfecting an experience that’s faster and larger than ever before, and give their Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles a good workout. Several rumors about the game have appeared, too, including some new leaks about its map.

call of duty leaker TheGhostofHope wrote on Twitter that based on what they’ve seen, they think that the map in Warzone 2 will take place in the Atacama Desert, which would mean it’s set in South America. With the map rumored to feature ares from the original Modern Warfare 2and the 2009 game having iconic maps set in deserts called Rust’ and ‘Afghan’, this seems possible. It’s speculation on the leaker’s part, but it was also repeated by Hydra9114, another well known leaker who previously revealed the Snoop Dogg skin for Call of Duty: Vanguard. With a few sources reporting the same thing, it could certainly turn out to be true, though fans should still take it with a grain of salt for the time being.

There’s no know release date for either upcoming call of duty game, but some people are claiming that Warzone 2 will come out alongside Modern Warfare 2. It’s also rumored to hit 120 FPS on day one, which would be quite the feat. Until then, updates and new seasons will continue to come to the original Call of Duty: Warzone.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
