Yesterday, Activision has officially revealed that their latest game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare became the most-played Call of Duty game of this console generation. However, the most-played doesn’t mean commercially successful, but it’s safe to say that the game is getting there.
According to the information provided by an official press release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now the best selling game in 2019 and just recently crossed 1 billion dollars in “Worldwide Sell-Through”. Modern Warfare also surpassed all other CoD games released over a 6-year period in categories such as Hours Played, Hours per Player, and Average Daily Players. This was measured over the first 50 days after the game’s launch and compared with numbers of other CoD titles released since 2012’s Black Ops 2 iteration.
The press release also reveals some numbers behind these claims. According to Activision, most hours played translates to over 500 000 million hours spent by players in multiplayer matches. Crazy numbers for the first 50 days of the game, don’t you think?
However, these numbers will only get bigger since the development team is hard at work trying to provide as much new content as possible. Today, the game gets it’s free 1.12 update which brings tons of new stuff such as new maps and multiplayer modes.
So, yeah… if you had any doubts on whether you should join Call of Duty: Modern Warfare community, be sure that you do. It would be a real shame to miss out on one of the best Call of Duty games ever. At least according to Call of Duty series fans.
