KEY POINTS

  • "Call of Duty 2021" is the upcoming premium installment of the hit franchise
  • The game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games
  • "Call of Duty 2021" is reportedly releasing in November 2021

Several points of interest (POI) of the supposed "Call of Duty 2021" WWII Pacific-themed map coming to "Warzone" were reportedly uncovered recently through a datamining activity.

The latest details about the upcoming map in "Call of Duty: Warzone" that would release alongside "Call of Duty 2021" came from dataminer Glitchy. According to them, they have uncovered several locations from the game files following the release of the "Warzone" Season 4 update. These locations are currently not available in the game but are in the game's files.

This includes Airstrip, Arsenal, Beachhead, Caldera and Capital. They also uncovered locations such as Docks, Farms, Lagoon, Mines, Resort, Radio Station, Sub Pen and Village. Some of these locations sound familiar to most "Call of Duty" fans while several other names are a direct reference to classic maps in the franchise. For instance, Airfield is from "World at War."

The term Subpen is seemingly a nod to the rumored World War II theme of "Call of Duty 2021." It could also be a shorthand version for submarine open, which is a bunker that shields submarine from air attacks. This method was widely practiced during the Second World War. 

This latest leak has been validated to some extent by various insiders, particularly by Tom Henderson and Nanikos, who have been sharing reliable information in the gaming industry. However, while these files are in the game files, there is nothing solid that directly confirms that these are indeed locations in the rumored "Call of Duty: Warzone" map. 

Earlier reports claimed that Activision would launch a new "Warzone" map alongside the official release of "Call of Duty 2021." The video game publisher reportedly planned the same for "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War," unfortunately, things did turn out that way. Rumors have it that the premium "Call of Duty" title would launch sometime this summer and would release sometime in November 2021.

In the absence of an official confirmation, fans should temper their expectations about these supposed points of interest in the rumored WWII Pacific-themed "Call of Duty: Warzone" Map. Activision already confirmed that a premium "Call of Duty" is currently in the works with Sledgehammer Games at the helm.
