From the tiny seeds of a 2003 World War II shooter, it's wild to think how far we've come with Call of Duty. While Activision Blizzard has some major IPs under its belt with everything from World of Warcraft to Tony HawkCrash Bandicoot to Overwatch, they're all obliterated by Call of Duty

Despite the (many) flaws that were levelled at 2021's VanguardCoD was once again the best-selling franchise in the USA for the 14th year in a row. It's a truly mind-boggling statistic, but it might explain why Activision has a small town's worth of people working on the franchise. 

How Many People Work On Call Of Duty?

Call of Duty Vanguard

With Activision Blizzard's yearly report of what's going on in the trenches, gamers have been wading through a battlefield of facts and figures. As spotted by TweakTown, there's an interesting tidbit that reveals exactly how many Activision employees are working on Call of Duty right now.

Currently, 3,000 people are tinkering away on Call of Duty - which is around 31% of Activision's entire 9,800 staff. Looking at the bigger picture, that means about half of the 6,800 devs are currently focused on the shooter series. This starts to make a little more sense when you remember there's still support for 2019's Modern Warfare, 2020's Black Ops Cold WarVanguardCall of Duty: MobileWarzone, and upcoming games. 

Also, remember that more people watch others sleep than play Vanguard, it's likely the CoD team also outnumbers the troubled title's viewership. Things are only set to get bigger, as only last year, Activision sacrificed Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy's Toys for Bob for the greater good - moving the team to help support the wobbly Warzone

What's Next With Call Of Duty?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

While Activision looks to point fingers - blaming an apparent hatred of WWII for Vanguard's failure - it's also looking at a brighter future. 2022 is supposed to be a massive year, with those at the top championing a new era thanks to Warzone 2 and a sequel to the lauded Modern Warfare. The marketing machine is already working overtime, with Activision's yearly report promising, "We are working on the most ambitious plan in Call of Duty history."

Keeping Call of Duty afloat is easier said than done, and if things start to go south, there are a lot of jobs on the line. We have to ask ourselves when will the bubble burst? Vanguard has undoubtedly been a learning curve, while a loss of 50 million players will surely lead to some shuffles behind the scenes. Still, with this many people working on Call of Duty, that's one hell of a Christmas party.
