Every year we get a new Call of Duty title. You would think that by now, gamers would be sick of the franchise, but it only seems to get bigger and better every year. The latest figures for the game after the first 3 days of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are excellent. It has managed to rack up $600 million in revenue.
This is impressive, but to make it even more impressive, Modern Warfare is the best-selling Call of Duty title ever. Ever. Black Ops 4 made $500 million in the first 3 days, WWII made $500 million, Black Ops 3 made $550 million, Black Ops 2 made $500 million, Modern Warfare 3 made $400 million, and Black Ops made $360 million.
So Call of Duty is on an upward trend. You would think that gamers would get tired of it, but no, these numbers are suggesting that gamers still love the franchise. Maybe more than ever. It has also been noted that there aren’t many games that make $600 million in the first 3 days. Other titles that have earned this honor include Red Dead Redemption 2 which made $725 million, while GTA 5 made $1 billion.
So Call Of Duty is in good company. It will be interesting to see if this upward trend continues from here.
