Once, when asked for his opinion on a restaurant, Yogi Berra said, “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” The same might be said about the popular Call of Duty franchise.
Activision has revealed the game’s number of active players has dropped from 150 million to 94 million since March 2021.
