Activision have released a statement confirming that its previous claim that 3.3 million users were simultaneously playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 during its opening day was false.
In a statement today the company clarified that the number of day-one simultaneous users was closer to the 1.4 million mark. The original statistic had been released on November 8 just after the game was released.
"[T]he previously released tally of 3.3 million simultaneous users of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 on Xbox ® LIVEâ„¢ on November 8 was reported in error. The correct figure is 1.4 million simultaneous users. As previously stated, more than 3.3 million unique gamers played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in one day on November 8," read the company's statement.
