Activision has announced that Call of Duty Warzone, the standalone battle royale title released last week for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, has surpassed 15 million players. The publisher previously revealed that Warzone had notched up six million players in just 24 hours.
Call Of Duty Warzone Reaches New Milestone
According to Daniel Ahmad, an analyst with Niko Partners, Warzone is the fastest-growing non-mobile title of all time, so it’s definitely off to a great start. By comparison, Respawn’s Apex Legends reached 2.5 million players in 24 hours and 10 million after 72 hours, while Fortnite hoovered up 10 million players in two weeks.
Call of Duty Warzone is available to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players at 18-22GB, although everyone else will have to free up a whopping 80-100GB of space. Pleasingly, the game does not require a subscription to PlayStation Plus.
Here’s the full blurb:
Welcome to Warzone – a massive new combat experience where up to 150 players take the role of a veteran Tier 1 Operator and drop in to the dense and sprawling world of Verdansk. Warzone is a game-changer packed with non-stop and endless action that’s free-to-play and free-for-everyone!

Activision confirmed Call of Duty 2020 earlier in the year, although it hasn’t gone into any detail on the game just yet. One thing we do know, however, is that it won’t feature jetpacks. The game is rumored to be in the works at Treyarch, and is set to be a continuation of the Black Ops series.
Given the series’ history for cross-generation releases, you can guarantee that the new Call of Duty game will be released for PlayStation 5 as well as PS4.
