According to a report on Barron’s, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now the fastest-selling Call of Duty game of all time, following news that it recorded the biggest PS Store launch for the franchise.
The site claims that weekend sales for the Infinity Ward-developed first-person shooter surpassed $600 million, turning the series’ fortunes around after the disappointing commercial performance of Call of Duty: Vanguard in 2021. Reportedly, that game had the lowest sales of any Call of Duty game since 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
The Modern Warfare games have largely been among the most successful entries in the long-running franchise, with the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 named as the UK’s biggest-selling of all time back in August 2010.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now available for PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. The game topped the UK All Format Chart upon its release, with the PS5 version taking the lion’s share of all sales.
Looking ahead, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has assured fans that it intends on keeping Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles following the Activision Blizzard deal as long as there is a Sony console to ship to.
