Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the most streamed console game of the year, according to Twitch, based on comparisons of launch weeks.
In its first week 75,000 unique streamers broadcast themselves playing. And it was watched 26 million times. Twitch also revealed that there were 6 million unique viewers last week, and so far 327 million minutes have been watched.
Twitch did not reveal, however, which game had been knocked out of the top spot. But it was Destiny, right? Yeah, probably Destiny.
“Since the Call of Duty community on Twitch is extremely passionate, we are not surprised that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare set a milestone for most streamed console game of the year based on launch week comparisons,” said Ernest Le, Director, Publisher & Developer Partnerships, Twitch in a press release. “Our community spent over an hour a day watching and engaging with people playing the game, illustrating the incredibly strong appeal of live interactive video.”
