New ‘Call of Duty’ Stats Released on Eve of Launch
Call of Duty fans are now just hours away from the release of this year’s iteration of the popular shooter franchise. Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to introduce fans to things like military dogs, space combat, and female multiplayer soldiers. Gamers however, will likely jump right into the game’s multiplayer tonight and begin unlocking the game’s weapons and gear.
With the Ghosts launch so close, Activision today provided a reminder of just how popular Call of Duty multiplayer really is. A new infographic released by the publisher claims that gamers play a combined 1900 years of the game every single day – a figure that is likely to increase in the coming weeks as fans jump into the new game.
The infographic also has other mind-boggling stats such as the 1.9 quadrillion (1,900,000,000,000,000) player respawns that have taken place in more than 18 billion multiplayer matches since the release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be out for current-gen consoles, next-gen consoles (including Wii U), and PC tonight at midnight. Gamers who buy the game for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One have to wait a few weeks to play their copy, unless they take advantage of Activision’s next-gen $10 upgrade offer.
