Well, Call of Duty: Warzone is in a bit of a sticky spot right now. Warzone 2.0 is quickly approaching, and despite some fan gripes that have come of its reveal, players are already getting ready to jump the buggy and cheater-laden ship that is its predecessor.

The OG looks like a sorry sight, and some fans are wondering what the original Warzone has to offer that could ever convince us to stick around. The game still has Rebirth Island, right? And Fortune's Keep? Well, uh… not exactly.

Will Warzone Keep Fortune's Keep And Rebirth Island?

In a surprise move, the leading draws of Warzone beyond its battle royale action are being pulled from the game. Well, that's according to a reputable Call of Duty leaker.

TheGhostOfHope has taken to Twitter to reveal to fans that the maps are on the chopping block, as they're set to be removed from the battle royale favourite following the launch of Warzone 2.0.

"This isn't a joke," he adds in a quote tweet, seemingly in response to players refusing to believe the news. "They're actually being removed. Wouldn't make this tweet if I was trolling." Oh no, he seems serious.


Why Would Warzone Remove Fortune's Keep And Rebirth Island?

This is a huge reveal, and we're not sure yet why Warzone would do this when the maps are a massive draw for the game. They're also presumably one of the core reasons that absentee players would come back to the original after Warzone 2.0 launches. It's likely a means of lightening the load on Warzone servers once the transition to the sequel is made, meaning devs can focus on whatever comes next.

Even so, it's incredibly odd that the shooter would see off one of the reasons the game has become iconic. Reasoning aside, it's a sad decision being made by Raven, as it seems Call of Duty: Warzone will fade away in record time when players move over to the next big thing. It looks like Warzone is going out with a whimper, and given its stance in gaming, it's not exactly what it deserves... cue sad emoji.
