Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II breaks record on Steam

Although the success of Call of Duty is perhaps not surprising, relaunching the game on Steam looks to have been a wise decision.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II just set a record for the franchise by having 263,174 gamers online at once (thanks, SteamDB).

 Over 112,319 different people are now playing against one another at any one moment as of this writing.

Despite not being the largest on Steam, it is the biggest for Call of Duty, since Black Ops III previously held the 63,681 record.

It's beat the previous series record by almost 200,000 users at one time.
