COD: Modern Warfare 3 Sets Sales Record

If you read my previous post regarding COD: Modern Warfare 3 located here, you know that this game was released November 8, 2011. MW3 did something no other video game had ever done. Not only were 6.4 million units sold within a 24 hour period of its launch, but an astounding 400 million dollars in sales were generated. The Call of Duty series essentially broke their own record. Around the same time last year, COD: Black OPS generated roughly 360 million dollars in sales. Seeing such huge numbers from this series should be no surprise, to people who have followed it over the years. The last three games in the Call Of Duty series each broke the 300 million dollar plateau, their first 24 hours of being released. Though no details are known, Activision has already announced that a new Call Of Duty game is in the works for 2012. We'll have to wait and see if the most successful video game series can once again break its sales record.
