While there’s been plenty of speculation, we now know for certain how big Warzone 2 lobbies will be once the Battle Royale sequel arrives on November 16.

The exact number of players dropping into a match has always been a point of contention in Warzone. Whether it’s big maps or small, standard playlists or limited-time modes, the specifics are often changing, forcing players to adapt in each game type.

Although Warzone originally launched with support for 150 players in each lobby, that soon changed as the seasons rolled on. In certain cases, we saw a decrease, while other instances occasionally dipped above the 150 count during the Caldera era.

Warzone 2 lobby size confirmed

As revealed during an early creator event on November 9, we know Warzone 2 has officially locked in a 150-player lobby size. This seemingly applies to all standard Battle Royale modes upon release.

This positions Warzone 2 in familiar territory, pivoting back to the original player count that led Warzone to such immense popularity during its early years.

Obviously, plans can always change and 150 might not stick in the long term. Once we get our hands on with Al Mazrah, we might find the map too big and need more players, or vice versa. Rest assured, developers will be listening to that feedback and reacting accordingly.
