Millions of Call of Duty fans turn off their consoles.

According to Activision’s latest user statistics, Call of Duty fans are abandoning the franchise. Activision’s monthly active user data shows that player numbers have fallen over the last year, from 127 million in June 2021 to just 94 million this year.

The details are part of Activision Blizzard’s tough quarter of financial results, despite the recent and highly profitable launch of Diablo Immortal.

Despite growth on the Blizzard part of the company, revenue for Activision Blizzard fell 28 percent year on year to $1.64 billion, while total monthly active users fell 12 percent.

Since reaching a high of 150 million monthly active users in March 2021, Activision-specific player counts have consistently declined each quarter.

This time followed the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and was aided by the continued popularity of Call of Duty Warzone.

Activision’s monthly active users haven’t been this low – or below 100 million – since Call of Duty Mobile began in 2019.

So, who exactly is to blame? Activision has admitted that last year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard was a flop, and it appears that interest in Warzone is diminishing as well, especially since a successor approaches later this year.

All eyes will now be on Activision’s upcoming releases of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 later this year to see whether they can turn things around.
