Infinity Ward and Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has earned more than $600 million in sell-through worldwide in its first three days of release.
Per Activision, the game has sold more units in the first three days than any other Call of Duty game sold in the first three days in this console generation. The publisher also confirms that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the biggest selling new “premium game” release of 2019 and also the biggest selling digital opening in Activision history.
“Call of Duty is once again the top selling new premium game of the year, proving the enduring nature of the franchise across console, PC, mobile, and esports,” said Bobby Kotick, Activision Blizzard’s Chief Executive Officer. “In its first three days of release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare more than doubled the box office opening of Joker.”
“Through the first three days, Modern Warfare has more total players and total hours played than any Call of Duty opening release in the last six years. More importantly, our players are having a great time playing,” said Rob Kostich, president, Activision. “Congratulations to Infinity Ward and all our teams involved on an incredible game and its spectacular launch. We also want to thank the community for your incredible support. The launch of Modern Warfare is only the start. There’s much more to come.”
