It was also the biggest selling digital opening in Activision history.
"Call of Duty is once again the top selling new premium game of the year, proving the enduring nature of the franchise across console, PC, mobile, and esports", said Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare only released a few days ago, but it's already tearing up the charts.
With unprecedented variety, players can choose from an array of new play spaces that refine Call of Duty multiplayer. "Congratulations to Infinity Ward and all our teams involved on an incredible game and its spectacular launch". The forward-looking statements in this release are based upon information available to Activision Publishing and Activision Blizzard as of the date of this release, and neither Activision Publishing nor Activision Blizzard assumes any obligation to update any such forward-looking statements. It's also got the highest launch sales for a PC version of Call of Duty.
When you look at individual consoles, Modern Warfare's efforts are perhaps even more impressive. These purchases also support The Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organisation that helps veterans in the United States and United Kingdom find high quality civilian jobs.
The game came under criticism from Russian Federation well before its release, but one mission, in particular, has added more fuel to the fire.
The second method is to take part in the Totino's Pizza Rolls Modern Warfare promotion, which is now running on special promotion packs of the cheesy snacks in the US. Total players and total hours played based on Activision data. "And launch is just the beginning for us".
Currently, Infinity Ward has yet to announce when the new playlist with Modern Warfare's night maps will return to the game, but as soon as we hear anything, we'll be sure to update this post and let you know.
Over the weekend, developer Infinity Ward said it had identified an issue resulting in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare crashing Xbox One X consoles, although players have also reported experiencing crashes on other Xbox One models and different platforms too.
Why Are Modern Warfare's Night Maps Getting Their Own Playlist? The new technology utilizes the latest advancements in visual engineering, including a physically-based material system allowing for state-of-the-art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile based streaming system, new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing (PC) and more as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline.
