A new Warzone map is a treat for players as we don't get many of them. After Verdansk, players got Verdansk '84 along with Rebirth Island for Warzone resurgence mode. We then received Caldera as the new map that came with the integration of Warzone and Vanguard on December 9, 2021.
We haven't received any new major map for Warzone ever since Caldera, but that is about to change with Season 4. Call of Duty has been hinting at a new Warzone map for quite some time now.
The new map was first teased on June 12, 2022, when the official Twitter account of Call of Duty tweeted the name of the map following a little "fill in the blanks" tease. The name of the new map was revealed to be Fortune's Keep.

Call of Duty continued to tease the new map by sending parts of the new map to different notable content creators, including JGOD, KRNG BearPig, KRNG Espresso, timthetatman, dysmo, rich, and many more. The creators were sent the map pieces in the form of a cake and digital copy to share with the players.
So I woke up this morning and noticed I had a package sent to me that I didn't order...
It's looking like @CallofDuty has sent me a cake? I wonder if it has anything to do with the new fast past close quarters map!? #WarzoneResurgence #FortunesKeep pic.twitter.com/xmmzhCfmva

After the reveal of all the pieces, Call of Duty followed by revealing the complete assembled Tac Map of the new Fortune's Keep map coming to Warzone with Season 4. The map is going to be a Warzone resurgence map similar to how Rebirth Island is.

The new map's POI are as follows:
- Smuggler's Cove
While all eyes are fixated on the new season and the map, players are concerned about the fate of Rebirth Island. Fortune's Keep is a new resurgence map, and players worry it may replace Rebirth Island. This is not only concerning for players, but for Warzone itself.
Ever since Caldera dropped, most of the player base has abandoned it to play on Rebirth Island. Rebirth Island is fast-paced and action-packed with non-stop combat engagements due to its small size. Caldera has not been received well due to many issues, mainly the visual fidelity due to the landscape. It feels like it has "a lot" going on on the map.
Players are also demanding the return of Verdansk to Warzone. Those looking to fuel their nostalgia can revisit Verdansk once Warzone Mobile releases.
We still do not have any confirmation whether Fortune's Keep will replace Rebirth Island or not. It could very well be a new map coming alongside Rebirth Island and Caldera, or it could be in rotation with Rebirth island.
There's no official release date for the new season, but following the pattern so far, it will most likely drop on June 23, 2022, or around that date. It is also important to note that there's no confirmation that Fortune's Keep will drop at the start of season 4. It can come sometime in-season as well.
