Will there be new maps this year?

WG released one new map in 2020 (Northern Waters), two in 2019 (Crash Zone Alpha, Greece), and one in 2018 (Sleeping Giant). I can imagine that it is difficult to design and model maps, and have a realistic expectation that a constant stream of new maps would require a lot of resources. With that said, and with an understanding that new maps can't be sold like new premium ships, it would be great if WG released increased the number of maps released each year to at least two. Personally, I'd be more open to buying new premium ships if I knew that I wouldn't be taking them out in the same handful of maps.

Honestly, it pisses me off that more new maps aren't released or some old (removed) maps aren't refurbished and re-released.

Heck, even greatly increasing the usage of the Ocean map would be a positive.  But I'd love to see the Riposte map released into common usage.  And I'd love to see the original version of the Islands of Ice map re-released.  These three things would require very little work and yet would help alleviate some of the pressure/desire to see "new" maps.

I understand this as well, but I'm sick and tired of the lack of new maps.  And the excuse that new maps can't be monetized.  A pretty fair number of the player based are monetizing the game through premium accounts and the purchase of premium ships.  I don't think that it's too much to ask that we get some return on our investment in the game, such as new and refurbished maps.

Ocean II --  Ocean with Thunderstorm

Ocean III -- Ocean with Snowstorm

Ocean IV -- Ocean with an island... just one itty bitty one, right in the middle.

Ocean V -- Ocean with the spaceship from Battleship in the middle.

It won't be monetization that drives out of WOWS.  It won't be CV reworks, or skill reworks.  It won't be subs.

It will be one too many games spawning in a BB in the middle on Estuary that will drive me out.

More new maps please.

More Ocean. 

Also, Ocean with a single island in each of two diagonally opposite corners- but only when its Epicenter mode. Yep, Epicenter on Ocean lol, *heads exploding*.

In general principle, I'm with you on this,  Efros.  I wouldn't mind a version of Ocean with a permanent (temperate climate) equivalent of a blizzard.  I also like the idea of Ocean with an island in the middle of the map, though in my idea, it'd be a nicely large atoll with the center of Epicenter inside the atoll.

As for the final suggestion, rather than taking the suggestion literally, an interesting, but highly unrealistic idea might be to create a map or two set on alien oceans.  (Not an alien version of Ocean...)  It'd have "alien" terrain features, trees, buildings, etc.  Just a thought for something very different for the sake of variety.

Why put a single island in diagonally opposite corners in Epicenter mode?  Seems rather pointless.   Don't get me  wrong.  The idea of one or two flat, low islands on Ocean interests me, but it seems like they should serve some purpose.

Sleeping Giant with shootable cliffs around the A spawn so that it can be opened up. Shootable terrain was demoed years ago IIRC but never made it into any maps.
