Infinity Ward has officially revealed Warzone 2’s new Resurgence map, Ashika Island.
Less than a few months after its release, Warzone 2 is already getting a new small map that fans can play in addition to Al Mazrah.
Ashika Island will be the first new map added to Warzone 2 and the first Resurgence map. Al Mazrah is currently the only map in the game, but that’s soon about to change.
Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming Warzone 2 Resurgence map, including its release date, locations, supported game modes, and more.
Warzone 2 Ashika Island Resurgence Map Release Date
Ashika Island, Warzone 2’s first-ever Resurgence map, will release with the Season 2 update on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.
Infinity Ward confirmed this in a tweet on January 18, saying Season 2 includes “the return of Resurgence and a brand new small map for Warzone 2.0.”
Countdown for Ashika Island Release –
Warzone 2 Ashika Island Resurgence Map Locations & POIs
Ashika Island will include seven named locations:
First featured in Call of Duty World at War and later remastered in Vanguard, Castle is set in a Japanese fortress during World War 2. This fits in with the Japanese theme of Season 2 and Ashika Island, making it a great location to bring back.
Castle will only be a POI in Ashika Island and isn’t coming to Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer as a separate map.
Navigate through the market’s many stalls as you make your way through the Town Center, located right next to the sea.
Fancy a trip to the beach? Dive underwater or head inside the beach club if you want to take cover.
Use the water tunnels connected underneath Ashika Island as a stealthier way to get around.
This article will be updated with images for Ōganikku Farms, Residential, and Shipwreck as soon as they’re revealed.
