Earlier this week the gang over at Call of Duty announced that Warzone had officially reached more than 50 million registered players.
The game has attracted some of sport’s biggest names along the way as they battle it out against one another.
One such player is Chelsea’s very own Tammy Abraham. With gaming acting as a source of entertainment for so many right now, Tammy admitted that the game was helping him stay connected to teammates and friends.
“Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the things that has actually allowed us to stay connected over the last few weeks.” admitted the Chelsea forward. “We all keep in touch on WhatsApp and we FaceTime each other, but Warzone has the added edge of competition too, which we’re missing from not training each day and playing each week.
“Bragging rights is still a big part of team morale, so it’s nice to still be able to get one over on your teammates! So many footballers are playing it now as well which adds to the level of competition.”
It’s not just Tammy who has turned to the controller during lockdown. Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard has been getting involved after training and Tammy’s Chelsea teammate Mason Mount has also been seen playing via his Instagram; and if his Insta stories are to be believed, he’s having to carry Tammy through games. We’ve all got that one mate.
Crystal Palace winger Wilf Zaha has also been getting involved and seems to have been spending a little too long in the Gulag. We know how it feels, Wilf.
