Call of Duty Modern Warfare II seems to be breaking franchise records left, right and centre, with us having previously reported that the first-person shooter not only managed to achieve the biggest launch in PlayStation Store history, but also in the history of the franchise itself too. Now, MWII has broken another record, crossing $1 Billion in just 10 days.
Making the announcement via a press release, Activision announced that “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II continues to smash franchise records as the new blockbuster has crossed $1 billion in worldwide sell-through following the first 10 days from its release on October 28, 2022.”
The previous record holder was 2012’s Call of Duty Black Ops II, which managed to make $1 Billion in 15 days. Alongside this new record, Activision shared some early player stats, revealing that within these 10 short days, MWII has already been played for over 200 million hours across 1 billion matches.
Speaking on this success, Johanna Faries, the General Manager for Call of Duty said “The incredible momentum driving Modern Warfare II is a direct reflection of the energy and passion of the Call of Duty community. As we look ahead to an unprecedented level of support for Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0's launch next week, we are motivated to deliver again for the best player community in the world.”
As mentioned, Warzone 2.0 is set to go live on the 16th of November, and with the title being free-to-play, it is safe to say that more records are likely to soon be broken.
