Battlefield Hasn’t Beaten Call Of Duty Yet

With Battlefield 3 being out for over a week now many were hoping that its release would see the fall of Activision’s FPS behemoth from the charts for most played game on Live, but the results are now in and Battlefield 3 hasn’t managed to topple the Call of Duty series just yet.

Major Nelson revealed the charts for this week earlier today, with Battlefield 3 sitting in third place behind Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2.

Before you give up hope, though, do remember that the two Call of Duty games have been out considerably longer giving them more time to attract players, although that also means that they’ve had plenty of time to lose players.

Still, the real test will come once both Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 have been around for a few weeks, but based on simple numbers alone it seems as though Battlefield won’t be taking the crown away from Call of Duty yet, despite having sold an impressive five million copies in its first week, exactly half of the total ten million copies which were shipped out.
