While most gamers assume that multiplayer titles on now-gen systems are the most played online games nowadays, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 seems to be breaking that trend.

In Activision’s latest financial earnings call, it was mentioned that the three-year old shooter from Treyarch has hit a new record of nearly 12 million monthly active users during the last quarter (July, August and September 2015). Let that sink in again; a three-year old game that’s only available on last-gen platforms (and PC) almost reached 12 friggin’ million monthly active users in one quarter!

Some of the gamers playing might be doing so in preparation for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Regardless of the reason, this is certainly one impressive feat for any game — more so since it’s an old shooter.

In related news, while the PS3 and Xbox 360 will see their own version of Black Ops 3, it’ll be just the multiplayer component. Not only that, but it will even require an 8GB day one update, too.
