news

MW2 smashed together the box office starts of Top Gun Maverick and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Today, Activision announced via press release that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has achieved impressive sales figures in the first few days after its release.

The highly anticipated game has managed to set a new record for the best-selling opening weekend in franchise history, grossing over $800 million worldwide following its October 28 release.

Incidentally, the press release also mentioned that this is bigger than any box office opening of 2022, beating Top Gun Maverick and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness together.

As a result, MW2 is the “biggest entertainment opening of the year” according to activision.

The previous sales record was held by Modern Warfare 3, breaking it in five days. MW2 beat it in three days. And yes. I know the numbers are weird.

Other records the new game has set include unique players and hours played at the launch of a premium COD launch (not free to play).

The press release included comment from Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick.

“Thank you to our talented team for creating magic through exceptional artistry and technology, and to the global community of players finding joy and connection through Call of Duty. This milestone is theirs.”

We also hear from COD Managing Director Johanna Faries:

“Thank you Call of Duty players for making the release of Modern Warfare II one for the record books and the highest-grossing entertainment opening of the year. It is our honor and privilege to deliver such a historic launch weekend for the best fans in the world.

As amazing as this opening was, Call of Duty has a lot more in store. An unprecedented level of support for the Modern Warfare universe is on the horizon and the launch of Warzone 2.0 is imminent. It’s an incredible time for the franchise.”

MW2 is currently available for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
