Yes, although there are no matches non-stop, there are still many players playing daily. As the online mode didn't work for years and Tunngle was ended in 2018, the activity around the game was badly affected in the past. Since then, a new online service was started (July, 2021) by the playing community where everyone can play together and the player base has been steadily growing ever since.
Frequently asked questions
Questions and answers
Is the multiplayer still alive?
People tend to play anytime throughout the day (Europe time), but the most active periods are afternoons and evenings. Night times are usually empty.
When do players play?
The multiplayer can work through VPNs, they are not used anymore however. All everyone has to do is install the community multiplayer patch and they'll be able to log into the new online mode and play with everyone else.
Can I play on a VPN, such as Radmin or Tunngle?
The official end date for the original online mode (by Ubisoft) was for July, 2021. At the moment it is still possible to log in in some cases but it is not being used by players any more. Everyone has moved to the new community online mode since.
Is the original online mode still working?
It is possible to log in in the game with any username that has not been registered by someone, but a registration is available and recommended to everyone who wants to play regularly. It will prevent others from logging in with your name, will give you access to all features and will help avoid custom map download issues that otherwise you might have.

Do I need to sign up anywhere to use the new online mode?
Old players with developer skills. You can read more info on the GitHub page.
Who created the new online mode?
If this happens to you, you should know it is a false positive. The patch is an open source project and it's completely safe to use. If your security software red flags it, you should allow the patch to do the modifications to the game or add the patch, or the game's 'dunia.dll' file, (whichever your antivirus has a problem with) to the exceptions list.
My antivirus says the patch has a virus or maleware.
