The number could have been even higher if it weren't for the massive file size for the game--around 43.65GB. TorrentFreak quotes Pirate Bay users as saying, "43GB? holy f**k," with another adding, "I have to uninstall like 10 games to play this sh*t!!"
The site quotes another user who says they were going to torrent Wolfenstein: The New Order but later decided to buy a legitimate copy through Steam after thinking about the game's file size and how long it would take to download the game.
A Bethesda representative declined to comment.
While thousands of people are stealing Wolfenstein: The New Order, many are paying for legitimate copies as well. It was the top-selling title overall on Steam last week, and was bumped down to the number two position yesterday only as Watch Dogs was released. Right now, Wolfenstein: The New Order sits in the fifth position on Steam's list of best-sellers.
