View Full Version : Crysis 2 most pirated PC game of 2011

Crysis 2 was the most pirated game last year, with nearly four million illegal downloads according to a report on Torrent Freak (http://torrentfreak.com/top-10-most-pirated-games-of-2011-111230/). The numbers were collated from stats put out by public BitTorrent trackers, and suggest a slight decrease in overall piracy numbers compared to 2010.

Crysis 2 was released in March, so it‚??s had plenty of time to reach the 3,920,000 downloads mark. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, released in November, was the second most pirated game, with around 3,650,000 illegal downloads. Battlefield 3 was a close third at 3,510,000 downloads. Fifa 12 took fourth place with 3,390,000 downloads. Portal 2 was fifth with 3,240,000.

Those are some rather huge numbers, sadly, and around three times bigger than the most pirated console titles. They‚??re slightly smaller than last year‚??s round-up. It‚??d be nice if that was the start of a general downward trend, but PC piracy will continue to be a big concern for publishers in the coming year.
