Call Of Duty: Warzone Reaches Another Huge Player Milestone

The free-to-play battle royale edition of the Call of Duty franchise continues to pull in players, leaping up another 10 million from the count Activision announced in April.

Comments

Activision's free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale title, Call of Duty: Warzone, has been a major hit. The publisher said in a press release for its Q1 2020 earnings call that Warzone "has reached over 60 million players" since its release on March 10.

Activision didn't specify what it meant by players "reached," though it's likely the measure of total players who have downloaded Warzone, as opposed to how many are actively playing it each month. Though active players is sure to be a smaller number, the 60 million figure suggests Warzone has gained a significant player base in the three months since its release.

Now Playing: Call Of Duty: Warzone Video Review

And apparently the number of players jumping into Warzone is continuing to increase. Back in April, Activision announced that the battle royale game, which features cross-play between Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, had hit 50 million players.

The Call of Duty franchise is doing very well for Activision at the moment. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released in late 2019, "has sold through more units and has more players than any prior Call of Duty title at this point after its release," according to the press release. Modern Warfare's sales in the first quarter of 2020 were also the best the franchise has ever seen outside of a launch quarter, with a big chunk of those sales driven by the addition of Warzone.

Activision also said on its earnings call that there's more Call of Duty on the way, with the yearly premium CoD release on-track for the fall despite the impact of COVID-19.
