Call of Duty: Black Ops makes Activision proud, becomes Most Pirated Game of 2010

Activision is on a roll, with Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops breaking sales records just like its series predecessor, Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. MW2 was also 2009’s Most Pirated Game, with 4.1 million PC downloads, and now, Black Ops has just beaten that record, with 4.27 million PC downloads, becoming 2010’s Most Pirated Game of the year – a not so dubious honour in a year full of blockbusters.

The list of top 10 illegal game torrent downloads, compiled by TorrentFreak, can be seen below:


  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops (4,270,000)
  2. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (3,960,000)
  3. Mafia 2 (3,550,000)
  4. Mass Effect 2 (3,240,000)
  5. Starcraft II (3,120,000)

  2. Wii Party (1,220,000)
  3. Donkey Kong Country Returns (920,000)
  4. Kirbys Epic Yarn (880,000)
  5. Red Steel 2 (850,000)

Xbox 360

Who knows, we might soon be seeing PS3 games on that list in 2011, with the apparent success of the fail0ver PS3 jailbreak.
