Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Patch Changes Blackout Mode's Player Counts

Total number of hours played per player are up tremendously, and PC players are up twofold from past year in the three-day launch period.

Call of Duty is at its best with Black Ops 4, with better server tech, evolved classic gameplay, and piles of content across multiplayer, battle royale "Blackout" mode, and the gruesomely charming Zombie mode. Finally, it had the highest level of viewership on Twitch during the weekend, based on minutes watched.

In a post to Reddit, Treyarch says that it's "continuing to update various game settings to ensure the best experience for all players across all platforms and modes", so it sounds like the company isn't done tweaking player counts for Blackout's various playlists. The two consoles are expected to get succeeded by a newer product in a few years from now and they may just skip the disc driver.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Black Ops originally took place in the 1960s era Cold War, with its sequel jumping to 2025 and the third game landing in 2065.

Call of Duty's unique brand of twitch first-person shooting is a mainstay of the gaming industry, launching every year to massive sales and widespread praise.

Meanwhile, members of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 community have stated certain aspects about the game such as its assault rifles and Specialist abilities such as Nomad's dog being points of concern.

The game is a hit as revealed by Activision and after a long time, we are finally able to play an enjoyable CoD in years. The game is rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language). Activision maintains operations throughout the world and is a division of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI), an S&P 500 company.
