Call of Duty: Warzone will soon be expanded with the addition of Rebirth Island.

?? Regenerated island?
Alcatraz is a back baby

Activision is a Warzone roadmap released last month that teases the “Classified Warzone Experience” that begins when the integration of Call of Duty: Black Ops Season 1 with Warzone begins on December 10.
The images Activision used to make fun of this experience contained ambiguous text containing the phrase “… eniya Island.” It looks like the phrase “Vozrozhdeniya Island” is choppy. Vozrozhdeniya, the Russian word for “regeneration island,” was an island in the Aral Sea where the former Soviet Union built a biological weapons test site in the 1950s. Vozrozhdeniya Island appeared in the original 2010 Call of Duty: Black Ops as a setting for the campaign mission Rebirth.
So how exactly does it relate to Warzone? The leaked image is very similar to Alcatraz, the second and last map of Treyarch’s battle royale blackout. This map was set around a prison on Alcatraz Island and had a player limit of 40 players. It seems that Alcatraz has been updated to fit in the War Zone setting.
The question is how Rebirth Island will be integrated into Warzone. It’s possible that Rebirth Island is a new location in Warzone, rather than Battle Royale getting a new map. Rebirth Island can also be played individually with fewer players in limited time events.
