During Activision’s quarterly earnings call, Activision announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has now set records in terms of players and units sold.

Not only that, but based on microtransactions and in-game spending, Modern Warfare has more than doubled Black Ops 4’s year-over-year!

From the press release:

In the first quarter, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare®unit sell-through was the highest for the franchise outside of a launch quarter. Following substantial year-over-year growth versus the prior title in January and February, unit sell-through accelerated in March, driven by upgrades from Warzone as well as rising demand amidst shelter-at-home conditions.

  • Activision had 102 million MAUsD in the first quarter.
  • Call of Duty: Warzone launched on March 10, 2020 and has reached over 60 million players to date.
  • Life-to-date, Modern Warfare has sold through more units and has more players than any prior Call of Duty title at this point after its release.
  • In the first quarter, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® unit sell-through was the highest for the franchise outside of a launch quarter. Following substantial year-over-year growth versus the prior title in January and February, unit sell-through accelerated in March, driven by upgrades from Warzone as well as rising demand amidst shelter-at-home conditions.
  • Also in the first quarter, Modern Warfare in-game net bookings more than doubled year-over-year versus Black Ops 4.

In the same call, Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty 2020 is still on track for release later this year.
