Battlefield 3 Overtakes Modern Warfare 2 in Latest Online Numbers

Battlefield 3 Overtakes Modern Warfare 2

After the launch of Battlefield 3 just two weeks ago, many fans have flocked to the Xbox 360 to play DICE’s latest.  So much so, that the game has toppled one of the Xbox 360’s longest running activity leaders:  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  Since last year, Call of Duty: Black Ops has held on to the title of most active game on the Xbox 360, and the release of Battlefield 3 failed to surpass the November 2010 release.

With over 9 million sold on launch day, Modern Warfare 3 itself could even have trouble surpassing Black Ops considering that it has by far outsold any game released in recent history on the platform.

Given time and the general popularity of the game it will likely surpass it in due time, as for Battlefield 3, it’s still way behind the breakneck pace of the Call of Duty franchise…at least on Xbox Live.  Battlefield 3 will get its first injection of downloadable content with the Back to Karkand map pack getting set to release.
