God of War Ragnarok is now the second-biggest launch by PlayStation of all times

According to recent stats by Twitchtracker, it seems the God of War Ragnarok is taking a lead in the streaming business. Leaving games like Call of Duty MWII, Valorant, and Minecraft behind. GOW has garnered almost 135K+ views in the last 7 days. This is shocking as Call of Duty MWII was released just days before God of War Ragnarok.

It is also to be noted that the game has around 5.238% of global shares in the stream. Whereas Call of Duty MWII is going down by 38.3% in viewership. Leading to 81.6K views, and having only 3.158% shares in the total streams worldwide. Undoubtedly, the GOW is making progress in the streaming community. It will hopefully remain the same for some time now.
