Call of Duty: Warzone Hits Over 50 Million Players

Call of Duty: Warzone is taking over the world.

There are now more than 50 million players that have logged into Call of Duty: Warzone in the past few months since its debut just a little while ago.

According to Activision/Blizzard, this now makes Call of Duty: Warzone one of the most popular titles in the entire franchise. Possibly, it might outsell all other titles if given enough time.

Warzone launched on March 11, around about the same time that we started to go into a complete and utter pandemic mode. It is possible that these large sales have been attributed to such long drawls in quarantine time. Especially so since gamers need something to do. In just its first month alone, Call of Duty: Warzone has received more than 50 million downloads.

Next steps, Early Reports

However, in a first-quarter earnings report today, Activision Blizzard revealed they have 102 million monthly active users. So, when you factor in the number of people that are playing this game, its more than 60% of the entire Activision/Blizzard community.

While millions and millions of players are still branching out to heavy hitters like World of Warcraft, Call of Duty is starting to dominate as a mainstay for Activision/Blizzard. COD: Mobile covers the ground for mobile gamers, while Warzone snags a piece of the Fortnite audience while building even more interest in Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play battle royale video game. It released on March 10, 2020, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game is a part of the 2019 title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. But, it does not require purchase of the game to play. Warzone was developed by Infinity Ward and Raven Software and published by Activision.
