During Activision’s quarterly earnings call, the publisher touched briefly on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sales figures and target, stating that the title has sold exceptionally well, which is something we already know.
During their third-quarter earnings call, Activision discussed the early sales of the latest Call of Duty, Modern Warfare. Overall the early sale data are “exceptional” and that the company has many surprises in store for the franchise’s on-going post support. From the data they supplied, they confirmed that sales were up 50% on the PC from the previous year, and the percentage of the overall sale grew up to the high-teen percentage from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Consoles sales saw a strong increase in sell-through.
This brought much confidence as they stated that the game would be the number one seller on consoles for this year.
“We’re confident that Modern Warfare will be the number one console game of the year.”
They went on to discuss the free content that will be dropping (one is scheduled for tomorrow) along with lots of plans for in-game content. We ourselves had no doubts that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sales were gonna be strong this year, seeing that many fans wanted a return to the classic boots-on-the-ground experience. It also helps that the game won’t be opting for a season pass, offering all the maps for free.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available for purchase on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read up on our review here, and stay tuned as we will be offering a second look at the game’s multiplayer mode.
