    The current average daily player count for Warzone 2 is 92,751. As Modern Warfare 2 Season 5 has just released, many players will be diving back into the game, which is likely why the average has jumped up for August.

    Steam is the best gaming platform for tracking the concurrent player count of Warzone 2, as the database allows anyone to track the exact numbers. Unfortunately, Battle Net, PlayStation, and Xbox do not disclose player data.

    It’s worth noting that the data below only tracks the number of users playing Warzone 2 through the Steam client, and the vast majority will be on Battle Net or console.

    Back in Warzone 2’s release month of November 2023, the title saw a concurrent player count of between 250,000 to 480,000.

    Whether Warzone 2 & MW2 are dying is a question that’s regularly asked by members of the community. While we can only go off Steam data, it is clear that WZ2’s player count is trending downward overall, but that doesn’t mean it’s dying necessarily.

    In December 2022, the average number of players sat at 178,335. This dropped to 96,141 in February 2023 and in July it reached 65,193. However, it’s bolted back up over 90,000 as of August, thanks to the release of a new season.

    While these seem like significant drops, it’s relatively normal for a multiplayer game to see this type of decline in the first six months after launch. The player count has started to settle now and it’s worth remembering, that this is only Steam data. 

    So, there you have it, that’s everything you need to know about Warzone 2’s player count and whether WZ2 is dying in 2023.
