Black Ops 2 Scooped Up, But PC Scene Appears To Be Lacking

Arguably one of the most anticipated releases of 2012, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is Treyarch’s second entry into Black Ops series, and so far things are looking great. The game has already made $500 million after just one day of sales, and that’s not including all digital pre-orders and purchases.

However PC fans have expressed disappointment as the active player numbers total up in the millions for the PS3 and Xbox360, while the PC is dwindling behind with a mere peak of 61,000. People will argue that not everyone is on the same playing schedule and this doesn’t include the number of PC players in Zombies or Campaign Mode but when you consider a huge percentage of console players are unable to play due to technical issues, it widens the gap even further.

This becomes more prevalent in the actual game itself. Whereas previous Call of Duty titles have offered full PC support, many have said that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 feels more like a port than the previous entries in the franchise, with PC players having to resort to keyboard functions to do simple mouse tasks. The active player numbers on the PC have increased since launch day, when only 41,000 players were online during peak, a number that The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim maintains on a regular basis a year after launch, but it’s not looking great for those that purchased the PC version.
