Call of Duty: Modern Warfare got here in on the No. 2 best-selling sport of the month for April within the U.S., in accordance with market researcher NPD. The sport stays the best-selling sport each year-to-date in addition to for the 12-month interval ending April 2020.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is presently the fourth fastest-selling launch in U.S. tracked historical past (greenback gross sales via the primary seven months in market), in accordance with NPD. That means the sport is promoting at historic ranges, and it had overwhelmed all different sport gross sales besides three titles in its first seven months available on the market.
No doubt the sport is being helped by sturdy demand for Call of Duty: Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale mode that debuted on March 11, simply as shelter-in-place orders went to impact within the U.S. That sport mode has been downloaded greater than 60 million occasions, and Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick mentioned lately in the course of the firm’s current earnings name that many people who find themselves attempting out Warzone are upgrading to the total $60 sport.
I’ve take this second to level out that I received a match of Warzone, and thus far I’ve performed it greater than 200 occasions. I believe that Warzone’s reputation throughout shelter-in-place circumstances helps Modern Warfare’s gross sales.
