Call Of Duty: Warzone Now Has Over 50 Million Players
One month has passed since the release of Call of Duty: Warzone, and now, Activision has confirmed that over 50 million people have now played the game, making their latest entry into the Battle Royale genre a huge success. These 50 million players are from PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the game finding huge player bases across all of these platforms, despite the continued success of competing titles like PUBG, Apex Legends, and Fortnite.
Activision has regularly updated fans with Warzone’s growing player base, boasting 6 million players in the game’s first 24 hours; 15 million players in the first four days; and 30 million players in the first 10 days. Activision Blizzard and developer Infinity Ward announced the milestone in a tweet (below). The battle royale mode came out just as the coronavirus was forcing people to stay inside, and it seems that social distancing has contributed to its success.

Warzone really is a great Battle Royale game, though I’m still more partial to Modern Warfare’s multiplayer. I like that, unlike Apex Legends, you can play in Solos, Trios or Quads. And I like that you can go between Modern Warfare and Warzone depending on what you feel like playing.
Unlock Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, Warzone is free but still shares a Battle Pass with Modern Warfare, which is a nice touch. All told, I’m not surprised that a big AAA Battle Royale like this has had such huge success. The trick will be keeping players coming back in an increasingly competitive Battle Royale scene.
Call of Duty: Warzone latest update went live Tuesday, April 8, alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare third season of content. Warzone is available as a free, stand-alone download and as part of Modern Warfare.
