Call of Duty battle royale mode Warzone saw 30m players in first 10 days

The newly-released battle royale mode for Call of Duty, Warzone, has been played by more than 30m players in its first ten days in the market.

In a post on Twitter (below), the franchise's official account revealed the latest milestone, which sees the game's player base double from the 15m people that had played Warzone in its first four days. In its first 24 hours on the market, the battle royale mode brought in six million players.

Warzone was released on March 10th as part of the second season of content for 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That title isn't required to play the battle royale mode.

Publisher Activision has claimed that Modern Warfare has the most-played multiplayer mode of any entry in the Call of Duty franchise for the past six years. The firm also claimed that it was the series' biggest PC launch to date, largely due to it coming to Blizzard's Battle.net launcher.
