As Warzone prepares for the launch of Season 5 Reloaded and players begin to turn their attention towards Call of Duty: Vanguard's release, a new study from NetBet has revealed that the hugely popular battle royale makes over $5.2 million every single day. While the core game is free for everyone to play, the money continues to roll in through micro-transactions.
The report states that Warzone had the biggest year-on-year increase of any other game, with its revenue increasing by a total of 196% through physical and digital purchases. It also reveals that the game has generated a staggering $1.91 billion in revenue over the past 12 months.
Compared to Black Ops Cold War, the most recent annual release in the franchise, Warzone completely eclipses its generated income. NetBet says that the game is generating $1,289 every 60 seconds compared to Warzone's $3,633 and since its release, Treyarch's latest title has generated $678 million since it launched back in November 2020. Certainly, an impressive total but nothing compared to what Warzone is achieving.
Surprisingly, the survey did not mention the revenue being generated from Apex Legends and Fortnite and while both of Warzone's rivals are likely to be making some eye-watering amounts of money, it's clear to see that Activision's battle royale title is the money-maker.
