Call Of Duty Warzone Player Count Hits Six Million In 24 Hours

If there’s one thing people love, then it’s Call of Duty. Despite countless memes and trash-talking online, the game continues to sell well year after year. In all honesty, I don’t think it deserves the hate it gets. It’s sort of like some sports games; if you skip a year and return, you realize how great it truly is. Well, I played Modern Warfare last year for less than about 20 hours. It’s good, but other things caught my eye. Now, Call of Duty Warzone has me back in the mix, and a few others as well. By a few, I mean the enormous Call of Duty Warzone player count of six million; a number reached in only 24 hours.

Call of Duty Warzone Player Count Reaches Six Million on Debut

We knew rumors of a Call of Duty battle royale game loomed over 2020. The free to play style was a bit of a surprise, but a welcome one. People who owned Modern Warfare received access to the game four hours earlier than the rest. Otherwise, anyone interested could download the new game mode for free. Within 24 hours, the game hit six million players. The debut of Apex Legends similarly made a huge splash, but only reached 2.5 million. It helps to be a global icon in multiplayer shooters, plus, it’s pretty darn fun.

Is the Game Here to Stay?

The plan for Activision is to keep up regular updates to Warzone. The free to play draw could help convert sales via loot boxes and other forms of microtransactions. As we see with Fortnite, players are willing to spend money on cosmetic items for an extra flair while they play. If you’re going to play something for free, then what’s $10 for hours and hours of entertainment? That’s my thought anyway. 

The game is currently the top streamed title on Twitch, with 174k streamers online at the time of this piece’s composition. It’s only going to increase as more people realize how legit the game is. The battle royale fad seemed to be fading, but like a Call of Duty Warzone Gulag fight, it appears to be reborn to fight again.
