Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a gaming institution. The original single-player story and the multiplayer experience were a masterclass in how to make a first-person shooter and now Activision is hoping it can make lightning strike twice.
On Activision’s investor portal, the company said the following. It looks like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has surpassed launch figures already. It’s the most-played Call of Duty game this generation at launch.
Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare continues to drive momentum delivering new highs in multiplayer engagement within the franchise for this console generation. Modern Warfare has outpaced all previous Call of Duty multiplayer experiences of this generation in hours played, hours per player, and average daily players on its way to becoming the most played Call of Duty multiplayer in the first 50 days since launch in six years. The award-winning title, which has sold more than $1 billion in sell-through worldwide, has surpassed 500 million multiplayer hours played since release with nearly 300 million multiplayer matches. Upon release, the title featured a series of firsts for Call of Duty, including crossplay and cross-progression support, as well as the removal of Season Pass and delivery of new post-release content coming free to all players on all platforms.
The fact that there’s no season pass and everyone has access to the same maps may be one of the reasons behind the game’s success. Plus, crossplay allows friends across a number of devices to play together. This increases the chances that players will choose Call of Duty: Modern Warfare when deciding on what to do with their friends.
