It looks as though a large number of people hit an all time low and gave Wolfenstein: The New Order a high amount of illegal downloads. In a report by gamesindustry.biz, TorrentFreak just released information saying the game received 100,000 illegal downloads despite the large 43.65GB file size. That download count doesn't take into consideration the potential downloads at other torrent-based websites (or other illegal means for that matter).
Interesting how so many people resorted to downloading illegally. Even with the torrenting, the latest Wolfenstein hit #2 in UK sales, just behind Titanfall. An inetresting statistic also shows people ended up just buying the game after the download took too long to seed. Ironic.
