Call of Duty’s free-to-play and Battle Royale, Warzone, reaches 15 million players, smashing all records.
We don’t know if Warzona, the new Call of Duty free Battle Royale will be able to dethrone the almighty Fortnite, but it is slowly getting closer. And that not a week ago that the company launched this expected game mode in free-to-play format for all users and platforms.
And it is that as announced by Activision itself, Warzone has reached 15 million players worldwide, an unprecedented record, even for the franchise itself that can change the plans for the future of the franchise if they are met, as anticipated by the Rumors, that the future Call of Duty would embrace the free-to-play model in 2021.
Keep in mind that, although it works perfectly (with some bugs on PC), it is a game mode that is still in beta, so the room for improvement is still large in order to stabilize the game:

Be that as it may, it seems that Activision has future plans for the Battle Royale itself. According to various rumors, the duos and solos are coming soon to the game and could raise the simultaneous player count from 150 to 200 in total, an unprecedented leap for a massive Battle Royale that looks set to stop growing in the short term.
