A new Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific map is on the way, but when does it come out?

A new map is on its way to Warzone, called Caldera, and it's been long overdue. If you play any Battle Royale game long enough, you'll eventually get tired of the same old maps. Without updates or a fresh rotation, it can be one of the first elements to make a game feel a bit stagnant. For the most part, Warzone players have been left to play on the same map, Verdansk. While Rebirth Island was added a bit later, its size is still a fair bit smaller compared to Verdansk so can feel old pretty quickly.

Fortunately, a new map has been confirmed. The new Pacific map is set to be a bit different to Verdansk, hopefully injecting some new life into the game. Caldera will be roughly the same size as Verdansk but feature over 200 points of interests, including beaches, ruins, and a volcano.

So, when can we get stuck into the new Warzone Pacific map?

When Does the New Caldera Warzone Map Come Out?

Warzone Pacific's Caldera map is set to launch in the weeks following the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. Some players will be able to test out the new map slightly earlier than most, though. Here's what you need to know:

  • Call of Duty: Vanguard players will get early access to the map on Dec. 2.
  • The general release for all Warzone players will be on Dec. 3.

The map will be free to access for all players. Upon its release, Warzone will be renamed to Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific. It won't be a sudden change, though. There'll be a number of events in Verdansk to lead players up to the release of the new map:

  • Operation Flashback mode on Nov. 18.
  • Secrets of the Pacific event on Nov. 24.
  • Last Hours of Verdasnk event running from Nov. 30. to Dec. 1.
