Charturday: How Call of Duty Fares on Steam

Statistics pulled from Steam Charts using the multiplayer version (when available) for each title. Black Ops 2 Z is the zombie mode.

With the recent launch of Call of Duty: WW2, I thought I’d dedicate the first Charturday to looking into how the series has performed on Steam where the game has been decidedly less popular than its console cousins. Black Ops 3, for instance, performed poorly enough on PC that Activision introduced a multiplayer only starter pack for $15 to get people playing. Infinite Warfare and its packed-in Modern Warfare Remastered appear to have completely bombed on the system as well at least in terms of Call of Duty numbers, peaking at 15,000 and 1,300 respectively. Battleborn, by comparison, peaked at 12,000.

World War 2, on the other hand, seems to have attracted a lot of support. Its peak statistics haven’t risen to the levels of Treyarch success, that being Black Ops 2 and Black Ops 3, but they are decidedly higher than both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered several times over. Regardless, if you were looking to pick up Call of Duty and were afraid of it being dead on PC right out of launch, well consider those fears put to rest for the time being.
