Modern Warfare 2 Is Reportedly The Fastest Selling Call Of Duty Game Ever
The most recent Call of Duty game, which debuted on October 28 this year, shattered all prior Call of Duty game records within three days of release. Soon after its release, the video game raked in a staggering $800 million in worldwide sales. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a revival of the original Modern Warfare series, comes after the wildly successful Modern Warfare from 2019. It should not be confused with Modern Warfare 1, 2, or 3.
Even if Modern Warfare is no longer the best-selling CoD game, Activision has yet to disclose the precise amount of copies that have been sold worldwide. In 2011, Modern Warfare 3 was the best-selling Call of Duty title prior to the release of Modern Warfare 2. A staggering $650 million was made in the first five days.
Bobby Kotick, the CEO of the company, commended the Call of Duty team for their dedication and the magic they created using their amazing talent and technology. He also gave gratitude to the worldwide gaming community that enjoys and connects with Call of Duty.
For those worried about the Activision acquisition, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has assured them that Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation for as long as the console is in production. During his recent podcast interview with YouTubers Justine and Jenna Ezarik, he made the most understandable remarks.
What he said was as follows:
Our intention is to keep shipping Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles as long as there are any available. We’ve increased the locations where people can play Minecraft, much like we did with that game when we owned it. I believe that keeping the locales the same has been beneficial for the Minecraft community, therefore I want to do the same as we consider where Call of Duty might go.
