Call of Duty: Modern Warfare shatters franchise's record for first year sales
Hours played were also confirmed to be seven times higher than the previous title.
Publisher Activision revealed during a call with investors that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has beaten the franchise's record for first year sales. We don't have the exact figures, but given how much of a juggernaut the series has been over the last decade and a half, it is a pretty stunning feat indeed.
Activision Blizzard president and chief operating officer Daniel Alegre, also confirmed: "Across platforms, hours played in the Modern Warfare universe were approximately seven times higher year-over-year versus the prior title."
