As we thought: Modern Warfare 2 Destroys Records

November 19, 2009

 

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

MW2 had the biggest release ever

 

Just a followup on our Modern Warfare 2 extravaganza last week.  It was said that the pre orders broke every record for a video game.  Well the official numbers were just released.

In the first 24 hours of its release Modern Warfare 2 sold 4.7 million copies.  A total of $310 million in the first 24 hours of sales.  Not bad for a release.

In the first week MW2 made over $550 million in sales.  This first week of sales topped the release of Grand Theft Auto IV, the opening weekends for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and the opening of The Dark Night

So lets clarify this, not only was Modern Warfare 2 the biggest opening for a video game ever; BUT THE BIGGEST OPENING WEEKEND EVER!

WOW.

This is due to a great product, a devoted fan-base and an amazing marketing and launch campaign.  Infinity Ward has been rewarded for a great campaign.

Now excuse me when I log on to go play on PSN.
