Black Ops II Has More Steam Online Players Than Ghosts
Latest Steam figures reveal that the number of online players for Call of Duty: Ghosts is dwindling and that many have opted to stick with its predecessors.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is the latest installment in the said franchise and in UK was declared as the third-largest launch of the year. That’s nothing new with Call of Duty titles. Every yearly release sees to a major boom and that is why publishers will keep on minting it for money.
According to yesterday’s Steam figures, at its peak there were 4,574 players with Ghosts’ multiplayer client running. That may seem fine to most but in actuality is not when considering the fact that there are more playing older Call of Duty titles than the new one.
Yesterday more than 9,000 players were playing Call of Duty: Black Ops II. In fact there are more players for Modern Warfare 2 and 3 than Ghosts itself – 4,781 and 6,253 players during peak times respectively.
With yearly releases the community is expected to be divided. However, that usually sees to the latest installment or its immediate predecessor getting a good deal. In this case every Call of Duty title is seemingly more popular to play online than the latest Ghost.
With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare approaching later this year, we’ll see if those stuck in the wheels of Black Ops II opt to switch over. Since they already are playing a sort of futuristic warfare in Black Ops II, they might be more interested in jumping a few light years ahead in Advanced Warfare.
