Warzone Devs Confirm Map Rotation Is In The Works: ‘We All Want That’

Warzone developers have confirmed that a map rotation is in the works with the goal of making the transition between Caldera and Verdansk their top priority. However, “insane” technical issues seem to be holding them back for now.

In the two years since Warzone was released, there has always been a maximum of two maps in focus at the same time. While Verdansk came first, the smaller Rebirth Island soon landed alongside. Since then, we’ve seen Caldera completely replace the original battle royale map, for better or for worse.

Rather than simply coexisting like multiple maps do in many competing games like Apex Legends and PUBG, Warzone instead opted to only feature one normal-sized landscape at a time.

Of course many have urged Warzone developers to back down on this position and allow a standard map rotation function.

It now appears that this is exactly what the teams under the Activision banners are hoping to achieve. It turns out we might already have such a feature if it weren’t for some “crazy” technical issues.

Caldera Map Streets

Speaking of map rotation in Warzone, Creative Lead Josh Bridge assured that the development team wants it as badly as the game’s most dedicated players. “We want that. We all want that,” he told CoD legend TeeP during a Q&A on March 23.

The reason it hasn’t happened yet boils down to a “technical issue,” he explained. “The install and reinstall sizes [are] damn crazy. That’s crazy.

“If we pull out Caldera and say, ok, we’ll drop by Verdansk, it could essentially be a re-download of Warzone’s greatness.”

Given Warzone’s current file size, which often grows with each seasonal content drop, developers have obviously tried to avoid additional downloads.

Every time there’s been a major patch to download over the past few months, Warzone has “lost players,” admitted Bridge.

However, rest assured that a fix for this file size issue is in the works to allow map rotation in Warzone.

“We put a lot more effort into this one,” Bridge continued. “How do we sort that out on a technical level so we can have this rotation? We really looked at that.”

While he was hesitant to give specific details at this point, the feature could arrive sooner or later. “We shall have more to discuss,” he said.

One possible idea that came up during the conversation was that of a “seasonal map rotation.” While both Verdansk and Caldera may not be accessible at the same time, this potential fix could help keep Warzone “fresh” in the long run.
