The latest GfK chart data has revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III has topped the UK physical charts, although sales for the first-person shooter were down 25% over last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II .
The platform split in terms of sales sees the PS5 version of Modern Warfare III taking 72% of all boxed copies moved, with Xbox taking 20% and 8% on the PS4. Again, this is just physical sales; digital copies are not taken into consideration for launch figures.
As previously reported, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III had a bit of a rough time lately, and is currently on track to be the lowest-rated entry in the franchise to date. People have also levelled criticism at the game’s disappointingly short campaign, and a Bloomberg report states that the sequel was developed in just 16 months.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III is out now for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
