Modern Warfare 3 Sales Total $775 Million

In its first five days on the market, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has solidified its place as the best selling video game launch of all time.  With sales totaling $775 million, it eclipses Call of Duty: Black Ops by more than $100 million, a title which sold $650 million.

Modern Warfare 3 sold 6.5 million copies in its first 24 hours on store shelves in the United States and United Kingdom.  In 24 hours, the estimated sell-through is $400 million in just these two regions.

Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard said, “With $775 million of sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in its first five days, Call of Duty has become the first entertainment property in history to set five-day launch records for three consecutive years across all forms of entertainment…  Life-to-date retail sales for the Call of Duty franchise have exceeded $6 billion worldwide, which makes Call of Duty one of the most valuable entertainment properties in the world.”
