It’s been a week since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 was released and both regular and casual players have been able to immerse themselves in Activision’s battle royale. After the phenomenal success of the first opus, we could expect a great launch for Warzone 2.0 and the first numbers speak for themselves.
The bar of 25 million players has been crossed in 5 days, the sauce is still taking
It was via the official Call of Duty Twitter account that Activision and Infinity Ward thanked all the players for this colossal figure reached in just a few days. The feedback on the game is generally positive despite some players denouncing the slower formula of this new opus and the mechanisms requiring more careful play.
Anyway, Al Mazrah pleases, whether in battle royale or in DMZ and the number of players gathered speaks for itself. When Warzone first launched in March 2020, Activision announced that it had reached 15 million players in three days and then 30 million players in 10 days. It looks like Warzone 2.0 is on track to achieve twice the launch of its predecessor.
Activision has been able to ramp up the hype over the past few weeks to generate such excitement and it must also be taken into account that Warzone was voluntarily disabled for the 12 days following the release of Warzone 2.0.
“Once the Warzone 2 ecosystem is completely stable, and after a short Thanksgiving development hiatus for developers observing this US holiday, Warzone is expected to relaunch as Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera as a distinct experience. »
