Modern Warfare 3 records worst Twitch viewership for a CoD release in years
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is having an underwhelming launch on Twitch with the weakest viewership for a Call of Duty game since 2019.
However, despite the improved gameplay over its predecessor, MW3 recorded one of the worst CoD releases of all time in terms of Twitch viewership.
MW3 has recorded a lackluster debut on Twitch so far, falling behind GTA 5, Fortnite, and League of Legends in viewership totals, with 15M hours watched since its launch and the worst day one viewership for CoD since 2019.

That said, when compared with the rebooted Modern Warfare, MW2, Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard, the latest installment isn’t doing as hot in release weeks.
For comparison, Black Ops Cold War pulled in 6.5M hours watched on release – nearly double that of MW3. Modern Warfare 2, meanwhile, had 5.3M hours watched on its launch day.
Luckily, it does seem like viewership is beginning to stabilize. By day 4, MW3 has picked up more watch time than Vanguard and Modern Warfare did in their lifespans.
We’ll have to see how the latest CoD performs throughout November and the months ahead as more content gets added to the game, but for now, it’s definitely on the lower end of success when it comes to Twitch.
