1 Million People were on Xbox Live yesterday playing Call of Duty: Black Ops

The only people who thought this wouldn’t happen is Activision. They thought they wouldn’t sell as many copies as Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 and it’s looking like they were being a little too conservative.

Treyarch’s community manager, Josh Olin revealed in a tweet his surprise to the amount of people online.

“Am I getting solid intel? Is there really almost 1,000,000 players on Xbox LIVE right now?” he exclaimed.

Xbox Live wasn’t the only thing that had Call of Duty: Black Ops fever. Steam also had a lot of people online. 77, 609 were playing the multiplayer and 64,267 playing the games single player.

That’s a lot of people playing the game at once and Modern Warfare 2 didn’t have that many people online playing the game at once. This doesn’t even including the numbers for the Playstation 3 either.

Call of Duty: Black Ops will only get more and more people playing the game especially because of the rapidly approaching Holiday season.
