Call of Duty: Warzone hasn't even been out for a week yet, but incredibly - and perhaps not altogether too surprisingly - it already has 15 million players.
The free-to-play battle royale was released earlier this week on 10 March, and it's already well on the way to worldwide gaming domination, with the official Call of Duty Twitter account announcing yesterday (Saturday 14 March) that it had crossed the 15 million player mark.

In fact, even within its first 24 hours the game attracted a staggering six million players - which, for comparison, is more than double the amount that the record-breaking 2.5 million Apex Legends managed in its first day.
Now it's just a case of whether or not it can beat the 25 million that Legends managed in a week.
Despite the game being the new kid on the block, publisher Activision has already promised that there are big plans in store for the standalone Call of Duty spin-off, with 'tons' of post-launch content ideas in the pipeline.
In a press release issued earlier this week, the publisher said: "Warzone is more than a new era for Call of Duty, it's a game-changer for players and fans.
"We're delivering two incredible modes of play within this massive world that take the experience to a new level.
"The teams at Infinity Ward and Raven Software have created an amazing, free-to-play experience that's accessible to all to jump in right away and have a blast.
"There's a ton of content plans and live events to come that will continue to keep fans guessing and ready to experience new thrills."
At the moment, the game has two modes: a standard Battle Royale that supports 150-player carnage across a massive map, and Plunder.
The latter of the two is described by Activision as a race to collect the most in-match cash, which players can do this by looting, killing enemies and taking in-match contracts.
Regardless of which mode you play, you can currently only play in squads of three. Duos and solos were rumoured before launch, but they're currently absent for whatever reason.
But just because duos and solos aren't currently in the game, by the sounds of Activision's vague words, it doesn't mean they'll never be added.
