Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the fastest selling Call of Duty ever, says Activision

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the biggest Call of Duty launch in the history of this long-running shooter franchise. 

Activision announced today that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has sold $800 million worldwide in its first three days, which means, it marks the biggest launch ever for the Call of Duty franchise.

Infinity Ward's latest title managed to earn more money than Hollywood blockbusters Top Gun Maverick and Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness openings combined. Yes, combined. 

This only goes to prove that Call of Duty is alive, well and more popular than ever before, despite somewhat disappointing sales of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.  

Call of Duty Modern Warfare games launch revenue

  • Modern Warfare 2 (2009): $550 million in its first 5 days 
  • Modern Warfare 3 (2011): $775 million in its first 5 days 
  • Modern Warfare (2019): Over $600 million in its first 3 days 
  • Modern Warfare 2 (2022): Over $800 million in its first 3 days

Activision Sony are basically asking CMA to stop Xbox from doing what Sony have being doing for years Call of Duty is alive and well!

It's crazy to think that Activision have two more Call of Duty titles that bring in a stupendous amount of money. Call of Duty Warzone is as popular as ever while Call of Duty Mobile is one of the biggest mobile games in the world. Add the annual AAA release, which is a money machine on its own, and you have the biggest franchise in the world. 

No wonder Microsoft pulled the trigger on the Activision Blizzard acquisition.
