The Call of Duty: WWII PC beta managed to achieve a peak concurrent player count of 84,000, absolutely smashing the 15,000 peak set by Infinite Warfare.
The WWII peak player count also managed to beat the hotly-anticipated Black Ops III, whose beta achieved 63,000.
This is great news for Sledgehammer Games, despite the large number of negative Steam reviews.
GitHyp has compiled the number of WWII players per hour into a graph:
Those are pretty impressive numbers compared to previous years, and indicate a greater interest from players. Perhaps the return to a World War II setting has made PC gamers eager to play.
Call of Duty: WWII is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 3.
