The highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 game was released last Tuesday. The publisher, Activision, announced today that the game set a new entertainment sales record with approximately $310 Million in North America and United Kingdom Alone.
According to internal Activision estimates, 4.7 million copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 were sold in the U.S. and UK alone. The game launched in other countries as well so the overall number is surely beyond 5 million.
"The Call of Duty franchise has become a cultural phenomenon showing the power of video games as an entertainment medium," said Mike Griffith, CEO, Activision Publishing, Inc. "The shattering of these entertainment records is a testament to the compelling, cinematic and uniquely engaging experience that the Call of Duty brand delivers. Modern Warfare 2 has taken interactive experience to unprecedented heights setting a new standard for entertainment."
