Warzone, Call of Duty’s second battle royale, has seen incredible popularity since its 2020 release. But how many people play Warzone, and continue to in 2022?
While typical Call of Duty games release annually and with a $60 price tag, Warzone bucked that trend as a free, stand-alone battle royale.
Originally based on 2019’s Modern Warfare, it has since incorporated both Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard’s arsenal and even has a full-fledged sequel in the pipeline too.
The free-to-download nature of Warzone has made it one of the most popular battle royale titles in the genre, but what is Warzone’s total player count?
How many people play Warzone in 2022?
Unfortunately, unlike old Call of Duty titles, there’s no active player count displayed in-game for Warzone. It means seeing the number of players online at any one time – in a game dominated by console players – is impossible.

However, Activision confirmed that Warzone has passed over 125 million collective players since the game’s launch in March 2020. While this news came by way of a June 8 announcement, it’s worth keeping in mind that it doesn’t paint the full picture.
While 125 million is nothing to scoff at, this figure pertains to Warzone’s total player base over the past few years. It does not represent the current, active player base today. That figure is likely to be in the realm of a few million, but there’s no telling for certain.
Currently, there are no live player counts provided by official sources. Since Call of Duty titles were moved off Steam, and onto Battle.net, it’s no longer possible to see player counts for PC either. Though that’s soon set to change with the release of Modern Warfare 2, as a Steam return has been teased.

Warzone player count vs other Battle Royale games
Despite the lack of up-to-date player numbers in Warzone, other games such as Apex Legends and Valorant do have these statistics available for the public to see.
Apex Legends, arguably Warzone’s main competitor in the Battle Royale genre, has seen a total of 130 million players since its initial launch back in 2019.
Valorant naturally has a lower player count due to the fact that it’s exclusively available on PC. In recent months, Valorant has managed to retain a monthly average of 1.5 million players. The total number of players since launch hasn’t been made public.
Unfortunately, statistics for the popular battle royale game Fortnite are unavailable.
With that said, we will continue to update this article to reflect player data as more information is made available. In the meantime, check out our Overwatch and Battlefield 2042 player count trackers to see how they stack up against Activision’s Battle Royale.
