Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has established new franchise engagement records.
In a press release earlier today, Activision revealed some interesting numbers for Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward's famous shooter has now reached $1 billion in sales.
Understandably, it is also the top seller in the U.S. so far this year. Moreover, it is unlikely to change before the end of the year. Revenue figures are all good, but the player engagement is what is even more relevant these days.
There, it seems that Modern Warfare is outpacing metrics of the famous shooter series. The latest game of the series has set new Call of Duty records that have not previously seen this generation. These records include the number of hours per game, as well as the total hours played in the first 50 days on sale.
Activision also added that Modern Warfare has more regular games than any other Call of Duty games in this generation.
Modern Warfare is the most consumer-friendly Call of Duty in years with all of its design faults. The game is the first one that is supporting cross-play and cross-progression.
All multiplayer content is made available simultaneously across all platforms, except for the PlayStation 4 exclusive Survive.
In addition, players have received post-launch monetisation of the game through the combat pass. This was a result of providing a direct path to content acquisition and removing RNG and loot boxes.
In the form of new map remakes, a new mode, and new Spec Ops features, not to mention new cosmetics, Modern Warfare will receive a major drop in content later today.
