Warzone 2 player count drops “higher than expected”
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 player count is falling at a worrying rate.
Just two months ago, fans were rushing to play the launch of Warzone 2. Players had high expectations for the revamped battle royale after the success of Verdansk and the original Warzone. Unfortunately, many quickly began to see bugs in the new game, and over time the problems only get worse.
Not only is Warzone 2 riddled with bugs that hamper gameplay, it also comes with an over-complicated loot system, AI fortresses, and extremely noisy footsteps. A map as big as Al Mazrah also inspires long games and a campy, unwanted playstyle for most casual players and competitors.
CharlieIntel revealed that the number of players on Warzone 2 has dropped dramatically in the months following its release.
“Warzone 2 player count has dropped more than expected during the hiatus,” they wrote. “Unclear what all this means, which will change at this point.”
SteamCharts provides data on the number of players for Warzone 2 in the PC version of the game. Player count peaked on November 19, the first Saturday after the game’s release, with 488,897 players. However, over time, the numbers steadily declined for the months of December and January.
The peak in December was just over 300,000 players. Now, in the first two weeks of January, the peak has barely surpassed 160,000 players and the average player count is around 120,000 players.
According to CharlieIntel’s report, we can expect the decline in players to extend to other platforms as well. As they have already mentioned, players can only hope that Warzone 2 Season 2 will bring changes that will increase the number of players again.
