EA just announced via Twitter that Battlefield 3 has been played for a total of 1 billion hours by gamers. Battlefield 3 has sold over 20 million copies to date, with over 3.5 million buying the Premium subscription. It would be interesting to compare this number (1 billion hours) with the previous games in the series, such as BF2 and Bad Company 2.

How many hours have you logged in Battlefield 3 multiplayer so far? Let us know in the comments section!

    20 million copies sold, only 3.5 Mil got premium, and less then 3 million are playing at least once a week…

      Best of all, the player population started tanking just days after launch. DICEA damage control didn’t hold up very well!

      The game was released in October 2011. It’s now May 2013. I don’t know the numbers but if your 3 million is right, that’s a huge amount to be regularly playing a game that’s more that’s a year-and-a-half old. Most games, even with similar multi-player, I’m completely done with in 2 months.

      I never got how people could have a high KD and a low Score Per Min. My KD’s only around 0.80 but my Score Per Min is always in the 400′s.

        I have worked hard for the K/D ratio of 1.5 with no stats reset. What game modes do you play Rush, Squad Rush, Team Deathmatch, Conquest Hardcore mode yes/no? Conquest and Tank Superiority are my favorite as well Scavenger.

    Came back to BF3 after a few months away and now all that I see are abusive mods running around with 30-50/0 KDs censoring the forums and no report buttons.

    The number of servers in Oceania dropped significantly too, I think there’s only 8 now, and all of them are rented servers. Whatever happened to the Dice owned servers?

      The DICE servers are what you rent. DICE servers used to be the only servers you would see, until they introduced rental servers.
