Call of Duty: Warzone lost 50 million players amid Vanguard's poor performance

Call of Duty: Warzone, despite still being one of the top dogs as far as the battle royale genre goes, is rapidly bleeding players.

According to Activision, the free to play game has lost over 50 million active users in the past year.

The publisher, which reported these stats in an investor call, is blaming the poor performance of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

While Warzone has been struggling with other issues as well, the poor reception of Vanguard definitely contributed to this slump.

It's also important to consider that many simply chose not to support the products of a company like Activision anymore - they certainly gave players plenty of reasons to boycott in the past year. 

Even amid this historic slump for the leading military FPS, Call of Duty remains a headline IP.

With Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, we suspect there will be a major rebound.
