The map was revealed in a peculiar way, as Activision sent real-life cakes to various Call of Duty influencers, with partial images of the new map on top. Eventually, the community put the map together in its entirety.
for some reason @CallofDuty sent me a Cake, wonder if it has anything to do with new map that is supposed to be fast paced and close quarters.

Fortune’s Keep will reportedly be more than three times the size of Rebirth Island. It will offer many more avenues for action while preserving the fast-paced gameplay that Rebirth Island players know and love. according to filter The Ghost of Hope, Rebirth Island will be bombed to make way for Fortune’s Keep, although this has not been confirmed by Activision. A new limited-time event may be taking place before next season that explains why Fortune’s Keep will replace Rebirth Island.
Rebirth Island was loved by the community, in part because it offered a much faster version of the battle royale formula. It was limited to just 40 players, meaning matches were often quick compared to battles in Verdansk and Caldera, which were capped at 120 players. Rebirth Island also allows players to respawn infinitely as long as at least one teammate is alive, making it much more accessible than traditional battle royale mode. Fortune’s Keep will continue to use that respawn mechanic, though it will likely add a substantial number of new changes as well.
