The commercial performance of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 surpasses the previous record of 15 days set in 2012 by Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
After becoming the highest-grossing entertainment product of 2022 and the best-selling installment in franchise history, grossing $800 million after its first three days of operation, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 continues to smash the records in the history of the FPS of Activision since the new blockbuster reached one billion dollars in global sales after the first ten days of its release (on October 28 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and PC).
