Modern Warfare 2 sales hit $1bn

Publisher Activision has confirmed that total sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have just passed $1bn worldwide, according to the firm’s own internal estimates.

The milestone arrives almost two months to the day since Modern Warfare 2 was released on November 14th 2009.

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has exceeded our expectations and shattered theatrical box office and video game records,” Activision CEO Robert Kotick.

“There are only a handful of entertainment properties that have ever reached the $1bn mark, which illustrates the power of the Call of Duty franchise and mass appeal of this game.”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was just moments ago crowned the best selling game of 2009 in the UK.
