A Call of Duty: Warzone 2 player becomes an Uber driver in-game for other players

One Call of Duty: Warzone 2 player decided to have some lighthearted fun as an Uber driver, with unexpectedly positive results. The amusing gameplay footage of that foolish notion in action appeared online just after the start of the original game’s lengthy maintenance period, which will keep Call of Duty: Warzone unavailable until the end of the month.

With the release of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 this week, the popularity of the first battle royale game from 2020 would have undoubtedly suffered if Infinity Ward hadn’t opted to keep it down for over two weeks. The decision was made due to server maintenance and the necessity to allow the development team some Thanksgiving downtime, according to the firm. In any case, it appears that a segment of the player population that has already shifted to the current free-to-play battle royale experience consists of people that are more prone to pranks than highly competitive gaming.

When the initial game awakens from its slumber, the remaining players should have lots of possibilities to duplicate its wholesomeness for a long time. Infinity Ward has previously said that it does not aim to replace Warzone with Warzone 2 like its sister company Blizzard did with Overwatch. Instead, the creators want to sustain Warzone alongside its sequel, which was just launched as part of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 roadmap, albeit it will remain an independent, free-to-play experience.

What remains to be seen is how this tactic affects the original player population, which is already on the decrease after peaking at 127 million active users in 2021. Call of Duty: Warzone has 98 million active gamers as of September, according to Activision Blizzard’s latest financial report.
