Following a negative reaction from players, Warzone developers Raven Software have removed the Exfiltration playlist from Rebirth Island.

Raven Software introduced the Exfiltration limited-time mode to Rebirth Island on Monday, intending to give players a non-standard run of play on the map before the arrival of the next Warzone map, Fortune's Keep, Wednesday. Players immediately criticized the decision, with many demanding Raven allow them to play Rebirth Island in the usual Resurgence game mode.

Around four hours later, Raven announced it had heard players' pleas.

"We've heard you want to end Season Three with our beloved Rebirth," the studio tweeted. "We're updating the Playlist to include all Rebirth Resurgence squad sizes — replacing Caldera Resurgence — until Season Four arrives at 9AM PST on 6/22.

"This is NOW LIVE! We appreciate your continued feedback!" the studio concluded.

Several players responded with pleasant surprise at the speed of the change.

"Fastest playlist adjustment I think we have ever seen," wrote streamer JGOD.

When Fortune's Keep arrives in Warzone Season 4, it will be on a daily rotation with Rebirth Island for the first week after its launch. The two maps are of comparable size, and Raven likely believes players who enjoy one will enjoy the other.
