Call Of Duty Player Population Drops Below 100 Million

Call Of Duty Player Population Drops Below 100 Million
Activision

The jetpack era nearly killed Call of Duty, even if we do look back on it now as an undervalued part of the franchise's history. But history could be repeating itself, as Activision has revealed some worrying statistics for the current state of the game.

It's no secret that Warzone carried Call of Duty into an inflated sense of popularity during the pandemic, housing friends and families when we all looked towards technology to keep in contact with. 

However, since the world has re-opened and Vanguard and Warzone have entered the twilight months of their lifeline, Call of Duty's player count has dropped astronomically.

Call Of Duty Player Population Plummets To Lowest In Four Years

Since the turn of the year, numbers haven't been looking great for Call of Duty. A combination of Caldera sucking, Vanguard sucking, and a lack of a ranked game mode sucking, Activision recently admitted to a whopping 50 million player loss.

But things have gone from bad to worse, and in their most recent quarterly financial call, the developers confirmed that the player count has fallen below 100 million - the lowest figure since 2019.

In comparison to the 150 million monthly active users (MUAs) that Call of Duty recorded this time last year, the decline is quite startling. This lowest figure since 2019 also comes after the release of Warzone and Call of Duty: Mobile.

 

Activision Detail Plans To Combat Plummeting Player Count Figures

With numbers plummeting in Call of Duty, Activision has claimed that releasing both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will see these figures turn back in their favour, and have also hinted at a full game release in 2023 despite confirmations that there will be no annual release. 

"Across the Call of Duty ecosystem, the teams are well positioned to support these launches with substantial live operations while also continuing development of new premium content planned for 2023 and beyond," Activision said.

As to whether the 2023 release will be the mobile version of Warzone, the rumoured DMZ DLC for Modern Warfare 2, or another remastered title, is yet to be seen.
