Fortune’s Keep will likely replace Call of Duty: Warzone’s iconic Rebirth Island map

Activision is seemingly gearing up to replace Warzone’s beloved Rebirth Island with a new map called Fortune’s Keep. The map will reportedly come to Warzone alongside season 4, which is set to start on or around June 22. A map of the new Fortune’s Keep island can be seen below, courtesy of the official Call of Duty Twitter account.

The map was revealed in a peculiar way, as Activision sent out real-life cakes to various Call of Duty influencers, with partial images of the new map on top. Eventually, the community pieced together the map in its entirety.

For some reason @CallofDuty sent me a Cake, wonder if it has anything to do with new map that is supposed to be fast paced and close quarters.

While Activision hasn’t confirmed whether Rebirth Island will be removed in favor of the new map, it’s highly likely Fortune’s Keep will be a replacement. Historically, Warzone has never had multiple maps of the same type at any given time.

Fortune’s Keep will reportedly be more than twice the size of Rebirth Island. It will offer many more avenues for action and preserve the fast-paced gameplay style Rebirth Island players know and love. According to leaker The Ghost of Hope, Rebirth Island will be nuked to make way for Fortune’s Keep, though this has not been confirmed by Activision. It’s possible a new limited-time event will take place prior to the forthcoming season that explains why Fortune’s Keep will replace Rebirth Island.

Rebirth Island was beloved by the community, partly because it offered a much faster-paced take on the battle royale formula. It was limited to only 40 players, meaning matches were often brisk when compared to the battles in Verdansk and Caldera, which were capped at 120 players. Rebirth Island also allows players to respawn infinitely so long as at least one teammate is alive, making it much more approachable than the traditional battle royale mode. Fortune’s Keep will still utilize that respawn mechanic, though it’ll likely add a substantial number of new changes as well.

Gameplay from Call of Duty: Warzone mobile

Activision's popular battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone is making the jump to mobile in March. Specifically, it launches for iOS and Android devices on March 21.

This is a separate game from Tencent's Call of Duty: Mobile, which is currently available on the App Store and Google Play Store. Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is made in-house by several Activision teams, including Beenox, Digital Legends, Solid State Studios, and Shanghai Studios. Further signifying that connection is that Warzone Mobile has shared progression with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and the PC and console versions of Warzone. Payers can level up the same weapons, access content from the BlackCell Battle Pass and store, and gain XP on the same account across all three games. Warzone Mobile will also have full controller support, although it will have a virtual controller overlay that's highly customizable.

The best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
A soldier standing in an armory.

To the layman, every gun in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 probably seems the same. They all shoot bullets, right? In reality, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even when you take player skill out of the equation, each gun has vastly different stats and applications that make some, even within their own category, just plain better choices for everyone. Each gun is broken down into various stats, including recoil, ADS speed, damage, and much more, which makes it hard to easily compare them. When you factor in just how many guns are available as you level up and keep unlocking more, the prospect of picking the best ones becomes overwhelming. If you're trying to build the ideal loadout to dominate the current meta, these are the best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for each weapon type.

We will detail the top picks per each class, and then list the rest in terms of how they rank.
