We’ve talked for months about how big Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was going to be and it’s certainly proving true. Activision announced that in just the span of ten days since release, it has crossed $1 billion in sales. This makes it the fastest-selling Call of Duty of all-time surpassing the previous record-holder Black Ops 2 which crossed the mark after fifteen days.
Activision CEO Bobby Kotick offered the following statement:
Our developers, along with our entire Activision Blizzard team, are the backbone of our unwavering commitment to serve our hundreds of millions of players around the world. I am so proud of the extraordinary efforts from our Call of Duty teams and the records they have achieved with Modern Warfare II. Connecting the world through joy, fun and the thrill of competition is the key to our success. Modern Warfare II has provided this to millions of players faster and with greater satisfaction than ever before.
And of course, don’t forget that Warzone 2 launches next week on November 16th alongside “Season 1” of Modern Warfare 2. We’ll be covering Warzone 2 more extensively next week so stay tuned. And for those who want a preview, you can expect to see DMZ and Warzone 2 this Wednesday (November 9th) as Activision shows off gameplay for the first time!
