Call of Duty: Warzone Hits 30 Million Players in 10 Days
The latest battle royale to hit the market has broken the 30 million player mark in just 10 days, and it doesn't look like Call of Duty: Warzone is slowing down any time soon.
Clearly, the game was released at a fortuitous time, with social distancing measures leaving many stranded at home with ample free time on their hands.
Furthermore, it is free to play, supports crossplay between PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and allows up to 150 players in single-player and three-man squads, further contributing to its success in numbers.
According to Statista, rival battle royale Apex Legends boasts a total of 70 million players, though only 8-10 million of those are active weekly. Respawn Entertainment's title also launched without any prior marketing in February 2019, and hit the 25 million mark within a week, and 50 million within a month.
Only time will tell whether Warzone can break Apex Legends' record, but with the outbreak still going strong, it seems like that the numbers will continue growing in the days to come.
