Activision have recently reported the loss of 50 Million active monthly players just in the past year, it seems this loss is due to a number of issues players have been facing in both Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone.
The majority of Activision’s active monthly playerbase comes from Call of Duty titles, it was recorded back in March of 2021 that these figures were at around 150 million players.
However, it seems that these numbers have been steadily declining in each quarter since, just a year later and only 100 million active players remain.
This means that the company have seen a 30% drop each year which is quite a significant drop in comparison to other companies who seem to have only minor decreases in players.
CharlieIntel took to Twitter to show the decrease in players, the post read “Activision has seen a decline in monthly active users over the last year. The company relates Vanguard’s lower sales, which also lead to lower engagement on Warzone, along with more people going out with pandemic restrictions lifting over the last year as causes.”
It seems that the possible reason for the decline in numbers could be related to some issues players have experienced with the most recent release of Vanguard along with the declining interest in Warzone.
Activision reps reported in their Q1 2022 financial results that “Call of Duty net bookings on console and PC declined year-over-year in the first quarter, reflecting lower premium sales for Call of Duty: Vanguard versus the year ago title and lower engagement in Call of Duty: Warzone”.
