The new battle royale mode for Call of Duty called Warzone has seen over 6 million players joining within 24 hours of the game’s release across various platforms.
“What a day! 24 hours in and over 6 million of you have dropped into #Warzone. Thank you – we’re just getting started. #FreeCallofDuty,” the company tweeted on Thursday.

According to Daniel Ahmad, Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, Fortnite’s free-to-play battle royale reached 10 million players after two weeks which means Warzone is clearly doing well compared to its rivals.
Given the current ongoing Global Pandemic situation keeping many people at home unexpectedly, it seems reasonable that the numbers will continue to climb.
The free-to-play and cross-platform experience, Call of Duty: Warzone, is available to download for free. One does not need to own the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to download, play and enjoy Warzone.
Warzone is a massive combat arena, set in the expansive and dense city of Verdansk, where up to 150 players will battle for victory, across two distinct epic modes of play, Battle Royale and Plunder.
For owners of the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Warzone will replace the previously named ‘Classified’ panel in the Main Menu.
Additionally, Call of Duty: Mobile earlier confirmed that Zombies mode will be removed from the game as of March 25, on account of the game’s creators finding it to be lacking in quality.
