The 2023 Global Finals of the World Series of Warzone has secured its place as the fifth most-watched event in the Call of Duty: Warzone gaming community, boasting a peak viewership of 308,289.
Held at London’s Copper Box Arena, this season-ending showdown managed to maintain an average viewership of approximately 245,000 over the course of its five-hour broadcast, as reported by Esports Charts, a platform dedicated to tracking esports statistics.
Although the Global Finals made a significant impact, the title for the most-watched Call of Duty: Warzone event still belongs to the inaugural Twitch Rivals x Call of Duty World Series of Warzone #1, which remains at the top with an impressive 441,145 viewers.
Team Biffle, hailing from North America, clinched victory in the first-ever World Series of Warzone Global Finals, earning themselves a noteworthy $100,000 in prize money. In an exciting twist, all 150 participating players took part in a ‘Solo Yolo‘ match, with Skullface emerging as the ultimate survivor and taking home an additional $100,000.
Marking a historic moment, the 2023 World Series of Warzone Global Finals became the first LAN (Local Area Network) event in the series since its inception in 2020. The promising viewership numbers indicate a bright future for Call of Duty: Warzone as an esports spectacle. However, as of now, Activision has not disclosed any details regarding the 2024 World Series of Warzone.
Notably, the 2023 World Series of Warzone Global Finals followed the conclusion of the 2023 Call of Duty League (CDL) season, which saw its playoffs played on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Although it garnered a substantial peak viewership of 294,178, this figure was slightly lower, approximately 4.6% less, than that of Warzone.
The Copper Box Arena in London has a history with Call of Duty events, with the Call of Duty World League (CWL) hosting an event there in 2019. In August 2023, the esports and gaming company Gfinity also organized a LAN event at the same venue.
London has emerged as a prominent hub for esports events in the United Kingdom, with notable tournaments like the Apex Legends Global Series and League of Legends’ MSI taking place in the city in 2023.
