Early in March 2020, Call of Duty: Warzone was released and it is Call of Duty’s second battle royale game and without a doubt one of the best. Warzone has outperformed its main competitors, such as Fortnite and Apex Legends, and has become a worldwide sensation.
Unfortunately, even a year and a half after its release, the game still has numerous issues. These issues are the primary reason why players abandon the game and do not return. However, the game continues to attract millions of active players who enjoy it. Let’s see how many people there are!
Warzone passed the 100-million-player mark in April 2021, which was a huge milestone. The number of concurrent players, on the other hand, tells a different story. While Infinity Ward does not provide an official player count, PlayerCounter provides an estimate of the game’s active players where it says that the game has currently had 304,382 active players, and the majority of whom are from the United States, China, and the United Kingdom.
The game usually stays under half a million active players, according to the twitch tracking website called SullyGnome, which shows and says that an estimated player counts for top games at any given time. Despite having a large player base, it lags behind its main competitors. In comparison, Apex Legends usually has around 1.2 million concurrent players, while Fortnite Battle Royale rarely has less than 3 million.
Warzone is far from dead, but Infinity Ward will have to step up their game if they want to compete with their two main competitors. The video game will also be available on mobile devices, which could be a game-changer. Let’s just hope there’s anti-cheat software in the mobile version!
Warzone was one of the most popular Twitch games when it first came out. Not only did it outperform its competitors, but it also outperformed every other game. However, as several popular streamers have stopped playing the game, its popularity has dwindled.
Warzone’s average viewers have dropped by 36.4 percent in the last three months, according to a website that tracks Twitch stats. During the limited-time event on August 19, the game managed to reach nearly 750,000 live viewers, which was a huge accomplishment.
Despite its declining popularity, Call of Duty: Warzone is still one of the most popular games on Twitch. The release of the mobile game will almost certainly boost Twitch viewership.
