This looks to be a big week for Infinity Ward. In a good way, though! Unlike, you know, last week.

The ever-reliable Robert Bowling broke the news via Twitter.

“…annnd we JUST hit 25 MILLION unique players on Modern Warfare 2. Insanity! Also, got a lot of #MW2 DLC details coming this week! FINALLY!” he said.

In case you were curious, the 25 million figure includes consoles and PC. So said Bowling in a follow-up tweet.

That’s 25 million unique across all platforms. Most on Xbox 360, then a close 2nd goes to PS3, with millions more on PC,” he explained.

At this rate, Jason West and Vince Zampella might want to put some serious consideration into just calling off this whole suit thing and asking each MW2 player for one dollar. Sure, they won’t drive away in Bobby Kotick’s Ferrari or take back the Modern Warfare license, but at least they’ll get something. We’re not entirely sure a tooth-and-nail tussle with Activision’s lawyers would yield the same result.
