Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was released on October 28th and has been topping the charts since then, claiming the title of the biggest entertainment opening of the year. Leaving Hollywood releases behind as well as all the previous Call of Duty games.
Well, if becoming the biggest Call of Duty launch ever wasn’t enough for MW2. I am happy to report that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has crossed a $1 Billion sell-through in just 10 days after its release.
Not only that, Activision has revealed the $1 Billion figure in a press release today but also has acknowledged that player engagement continues to soar as Modern Warfare II players already have played more than 200 million hours and over 1 billion matches across PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms in the first 10 days following its release on October 28th.
Activision took this moment to thank the COD Community for their overwhelming support and assured us that there’s more to come with the release of Warzone 2.0 on November 16th.
