Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is going to be fully unveiled soon, and Infinity Ward and Activision recently confirmed that the game is launching this October. But of course, with Call of Duty: Warzone 2 – or whatever the battle royale follow-up ends up being called – there’s another Infinity Ward-developed game in the series that’s due out later this year.
While details on the shooter are currently scant, recent days have seen leaks shedding light on some interesting tidbits, from its similarities to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, to details on the game’s map, to new features like interrogations, and more. Now, in a report published on Try Hard Guides, prominent leaker Tom Henderson has shared a drawing that he says is a full (and rough) recreation of Warzone 2’s maps.
In the map below, blue is water, brown is land, dark brown is elevated land, and grey is “densely built-up areas”. You can also see all of the map’s POIs (points of interest), and according to one of Henderson’s past leaks, these represent recreations of beloved maps from 2009’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, including the likes of Quarry, Highrise (represented here as Modern City), Terminal (Airport), and Afghan (Caves).
Interestingly, you’ll also see plenty of water-dominated areas in the map, including rivers running through it. That’s because, according to Henderson, Warzone 2 also has a new swimming mechanic. The map will also apparently have a railway track running through it, which is represented in the image below as the black line running a circle close to the landmass’ outskirts. Additionally, the leaker also claims that the map is likely bigger than Warzone’s Verdansk and Caldera.
Interestingly, as has been claimed in prior leaks, the same map is also allegedly going to be used in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s PvPvE mode DMZ, though Henderson claims the entire map will probably not be featured in every game, with a single game using only a section of the map.
These are, of course, unconfirmed reports, so take them with a grain of salt for now. Activision has said it will be formally unveiling Warzone 2 later this year, so we’ll hopefully know more soon enough.
