The recent Call of Duty: Warzone announcement brought us the free-to-play battle royale game set in the Modern Warfare universe. Activision announced the game one day prior to it being released, and they now have confirmed that they hit a huge milestone in terms of downloads!
Activision’s Twitter account posted that the game has exceeded 6 million downloads in the first 24 hours of its release. And then 2 days later, this:
With that, it was confirmed that they will keep supporting the new free-to-play game with events and updates as the game ages. Developer Infinity Ward is keen to provide constant updates to the already massive player base that they have garnered.
In comparison, Apex Legends (From the same devs of Titanfall series) hit 2.5 million installs within a day of its release. Although this isn’t a fair comparison as Call of Duty is already an established franchise with a large fanbase while Apex was a completely new entry to the battle royale genre. The last game that we got as a Battle Royale alternative to Call of Duty’s traditional game modes was Blackout. However, Blackout was a game mode inside Black Ops 4 while Warzone is a completely standalone game so it will be interesting to see how it fares out as some time passes by.
Call of Duty: Warzone is free-to-play on PS4, Xbox One and PC (Battle.net) and is also cross-save/cross-play so hop on the action today!
