Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is reviving the much-loved Resurgence mode, and the initial trailer has been released displaying the new map. Judging by the glimpse, the game appears to be setting up shop in Japan.
On Monday morning, the Call of Duty account tweeted a suggestion to take a moment of peace before the upcoming battle. It was accompanied by a video of a marble being rolled through sand which eventually formed what translation software identified as the Japanese word for “sea lion” (as noticed by YouTuber Geeky Pastimes). The caption read, “#ResurgenceReturns #Warzone2” with the reveal of the tac map tomorrow.
The Call of Duty account further revealed the location of the map with the statement, “Venture to Ashika Island”.
We have very little to go on, but the mere mention of Ashika Island and sea lions implies that it is a location set before the Modern Warfare 2 timeline. This is supported by the fact that the Japanese sea lion, which was hunted to extinction in the 1970s, is referenced. This could potentially mean that the upcoming map is set in the 20th century, much like Warzone 1’s original Resurgence map, Rebirth Island.
Activision has announced that they will provide more information about season 2 before its February 15 launch, starting with the unveiling of the Ashika Island “tac map” on January 31. It is doubtful that this will be an actual picture of the map, but it should give us a good idea of the size of the island and some of its noteworthy destinations.
Gamers can now get their hands on Call of Duty: Warzone 2 – it’s available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
