The release of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 demonstrates that the Call of Duty franchise continues to demonstrate its supremacy in the gaming industry. Even though it has only been out for a few hours, the newest installment in this series already boasts the third-highest number of concurrent players on Steam. Only Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 have more total concurrent players than Warzone 2.0 has right now.
The Steam Charts report that Warzone 2.0 has over 400,000 continuous players at the time of this writing, which is significantly more than PUBG’s figure of 128,000 concurrent players. Dota 2 currently has a total player count of 553,000, while this game has a total player count that is nearly 100,000 less than Dota 2 at the time that this article was written.
Both Warzone 2.0 and Dota 2 are now behind Counter-player Strike’s count, which currently stands at an astounding 651,338 concurrent players. On the day it launched, the player count for Warzone 2.0 reached a high of 416,212. However, 400,000 gamers is still an astounding number, particularly considering that the game has only been available for a few hours at this point. In the next few days, Warzone 2.0 may attract more players than Dota 2 and Counter-Strike combined, and it might even overtake those two games.
Recent editions in the Call of Duty series demonstrate how much endurance the series still has, despite criticism that the franchise lacks creativity, which was directed against the brand. In just ten short days after its release on October 28, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 grossed $1 billion, shattering previous sales records.
The sales of Modern Warfare 2 in its first two weeks were more than double those of Call of Duty: Vanguard, and it seems probable that Modern Warfare 2 will shortly surpass Vanguard’s lifetime sales in Europe.
The free-to-play battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is a component of the first season of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 franchise. It is not necessary for players to have purchased Modern Warfare 2 in order to download Warzone 2.0; nevertheless, they will require sufficient storage space on their personal computers or gaming consoles.
The PC version of the game has an incredible file size of 125 GB, while the console versions each have a file size of 115.62 GB. On November 16, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 was released on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, as well as for the personal computer.
