Activision and Infinity Ward have announced a new milestone for Call of Duty: Warzone, which has officially hit 50 million players exactly one month after it launched into free-to-play waters. Nevertheless, 50 million is 50 million.

The news comes from Call of Duty's Twitter feed, where they simply wrote, "Over 50 million players. Thank you Warzone players for dropping in with us." 

Granted, Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play title and that played a big role in the milestone. You could also argue that even paid Call of Duty titles traditionally do well, but in no way does it diminish the achievement,

That's quite the adoption rate too, considering that Activision announced how Warzone broke 30 million players on 20 March 2020. That was just 10 days into its launch, meaning that it welcomed almost a million players a day since then. 

You could also point the finger at the ongoing pandemic and the fact that just about everyone is in social isolation, and you wouldn't be wrong. Nevertheless, Warzone is proving to be one of the most popular CoD titles around.

Call of Duty: Warzone is getting quite a bit of fresh content although some of the changes didn't ring true with the passionate community. Namely, in the Season 3 update, Infinity Ward removed Trios but after enough pestering from Warzone fans, they realised the error of their ways and reverted back

Some eagle-eyed Call of Duty: Warzone fans have recently noticed significant changes in the game's graphics, insisting that Activision and Infinity Ward have been gradually downgrading it since the 1.13 update. You can find a number of examples and see whether it makes a difference to you if you head on over here
