Call of Duty: Vanguard to introduce new Warzone map
It's been well over a year since Call of Duty: Warzone released, and while other battle royales are getting constant updates, new maps, and more, COD fans have always gotten the short end of the stick in this regard. 

Well, after Black Ops Cold War saw Warzone receive the bare minimum content with map changes quickly getting old for veterans, Call of Duty: Vanguard will introduce a brand-new map to the free-to-play battle royale.

Revealed during the latest in-game event, Call of Duty: Vanguard is set to completely revamp the Warzone experience, as it'll also implement the game's first anti-cheat system on PC.

Let's take a look at what we know so far.

With the release date of COD Vanguard confirmed to be 5th November, it's safe to say the new Warzone map will launch simultaneously.

While we don't have specifics about the latest Warzone Vanguard location, industry insider Tom Henderson, who has proven to be a reliable source of information and already correctly informed about Vanguard launching with 20 multiplayer maps, has said the new Warzone map will be set in the Pacific.

According to Tom, the map is set to be even bigger, but the player count will remain the same, explaining that the change in size is to add new features such as destructible areas and more vehicles.

Will Verdansk disappear from Warzone?

A lot of fans are speculating that Verdansk could be retired from Warzone, as having two maps on rotation would mean absurd install sizes for players. The Modern Warzone account tweeted out that once players leave Verdansk, "she will be gone forever," adding fuel to the rumours the map could be no more.

Sledgehammer has confirmed all guns and equipment featured in Warzone thus far would make their way to the new map, so it remains to be seen if Verdansk is set up for retirement or a rotation system will be put in place.
