Big numbers, big money.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is reportedly marking a return to glory for the franchise, at least in a business sense.
MW2 is the fastest-selling game in the history of the franchise, according to a new report by Barron’s. The game has made over $600 million dollars in its first weekend, according to the report, putting the game on par with some of the biggest box office weekends of all time.
The sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare features a campaign mode, multiplayer mode, Special Ops co-op mode, and will eventually add the battle royale Warzone 2 and extraction mode DMZ in November.
Call of Duty’s community has been vocal about its complaints about the game in its first few days, but that hasn’t stopped players from buying it up like nothing seen in the franchise before.
Modern Warfare 2 is available now on PS5, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
