Call of Duty: Warzone now has 100 million players

It's a gas.

Call of Duty: Warzone now has 100 million players, Activision has announced.

It's an impressive number for the free-to-play battle royale, which launched in March 2020. As I argued last month, love it or hate it, Warzone has changed Call of Duty forever.

The announcement comes hot on the heels of EA's announcement that Respawn's free-to-play battle royale, Apex Legends, also has 100 million players.

How does that compare to battle royale leader Fortnite? Epic hasn't trumpeted player numbers for some time now. In May 2020, Fortnite had an eye-watering 350 million players. Has it grown since then? Plateaued? Declined? Apple seems to think there's waning interest in Fortnite - although Epic has countered those claims.

Warzone is of course about to nuke its map, ushering in a 1980s-themed version of Verdansk with the beginning of season three.
