Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Hits New Record of 12 Million Monthly Active Users
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.
