17,430 online and 34,411 was the 24hr peak (http://bf4stats.com/)
By comparison, the much newer Star Wars Battlefront shows:

Not bad for the much older game.
As for if you're willing to invest the time, yeah, that's my concern too. I put quite a lot of my gaming time into Diablo 3 already with out UT2004 matches to add some variety. Don't know if I want to put the 100s of hours into Battlefield. I could always play it as a casual shooter but I wouldn't unlock many weapons or gun modifications to use.
