The current Warzone 2 player count is a good marker of how well the game is performing, and as one of the biggest games and battle royale titles on the planet, players may be curious about exactly how successful it is. 

It's worth noting that MW2 and Warzone 2's player count is constantly changing, so be sure to check back every month to see which way the numbers are trending.

Steam is the best platform for tracking the concurrent player count of Warzone 2, as the database allows anyone to track the exact numbers. Unfortunately, Battle Net, PlayStation, and Xbox do not disclose player data.

It's worth noting that the data below only tracks the number of users playing Warzone 2 through the Steam client, and the vast majority will be on Battle Net or console.

Back in Warzone 2's release month of November 2023, the title averaged a concurrent player count of around 250,000 to 480,000.

At its all-time peak on Steam in November, WZ2 reached a staggering 488,897 concurrent player count.

As of May 1, 2023, the average player count for Warzone 2 is 77,088, which is down from April's 81,332.

Pinpointing the exact player count of Warzone 2 is impossible as Xbox, PlayStation, and Battle Net do not release the data. However, it's estimated that Warzone 2 and MW2 have around 2 million concurrent players.

This figure should be taken with a pinch of salt as the number is constantly changing, especially around the time an update releases.

Despite this, back in November, the Call of Duty Twitter account did reveal that the game reached over 25 million players in just five days, showing how popular the title is.

A lot of players are wondering whether Warzone 2 & MW2 are dying, and it's a question that's regularly asked by members of the community. While we can only go off Steam data, it is clear that WZ2's player count is trending downwards.

In December 2022, the average number of players sat at 178,335. This dropped to 96,141 in February 2023 and now in May, it's at 77,000.

While these seem like significant drops, it's relatively normal for a multiplayer game to see this type of decline in the first six months after launch. The player count has started to settle now and it's worth remembering, this is only Steam data. 

So, there you have it, that's everything you need to know about Warzone 2's player count and whether WZ2 is dying n 2023. Be sure to check out our Call of Duty homepage for all the latest news and guides right here at GGRecon.
