Modern Warfare 2 hits 25m unique players

"DLC details coming this week."

Infinity Ward community man Robert Bowling tweeted overnight that Modern Warfare 2 has racked up a whopping 25 million online players.

"...annnd we JUST hit 25 MILLION unique players on Modern Warfare 2. Insanity! Also, got a lot of #MW2 DLC details coming this week! FINALLY!" he wrote.

"That's 25 million unique across all platforms. Most on Xbox 360, then a close 2nd goes to PS3, [with] millions more on PC," he added.

"We can only track those who connect to online, so this is online only! Also, you're correct, this is dominating COD4's numbers!"

Modern Warfare 2 was released on 10th November last year, meaning the game has taken just four months to be played by 25 million people.
