Modern Warfare 2 is reportedly the fastest-selling game in the franchise’s history, and as a result of these stats, it may become the most popular Call of Duty game in 2023.
According to Barron’s report, the series has already made over $600 million based on sales from the game’s first weekend. This number is believed to be equal to the opening box office sums for the top Marvel Avengers movies.
Moreover, Sony highlighted some of the game’s amazing sales, noting that Modern Warfare 2 has become the most popular Call of Duty game to ever debut on the PlayStation Store.
Considering how successful the series already is, the fact that it had the greatest PlayStation launch ever does indicate that there is tremendous demand for this game, which might make it the most popular Call of Duty game by 2023.
The game is currently the best-selling Xbox game and is also dominating the PC rankings via Steam, suggesting that the game is apparently doing well.
It’s hardly surprising that Modern Warfare II appears to be off to a fantastic start since each year’s Call of Duty game usually sells the most both during its debut month and throughout the whole year. When the first Call of Duty game came out, it was set during World War II. This game’s original version got positive reviews and several awards, including Game of the Year honors.
The Call of Duty franchise is renowned for its appeal to a wide audience and for frequently dominating annual sales rankings. Given that the franchise is approaching its 20th year on the market and the evolving nature of sales as online becomes the standard, it is not strange for it to go through these sales.
Even though the game has only been out for four days, it is already doing remarkably well, and players seem to be loving it. It would be fascinating to see if the trend continues and if it surpasses other Call of Duty games in popularity by 2023.
