Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sets new franchise launch record

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 just posted more than $800 million in sales in its first three days alone after launching last week.

According to Activision Blizzard, Modern Warfare 2 holds the record for the "top-selling opening weekend" for the Call of Duty franchise. 

The reboot has surpassed its sequel and predecessor (try not to get confused), 2011's Modern Warfare 3.

For what it's worth, MW2 didn't just post empty numbers. It's a genuinely good game.

As for the multiplayer, plenty are calling it the series' best entry in years as gamers also prefer it over the last Modern Warfare from 2009.

Regardless of how you look at it, there's no disputing how it's numbers are impressive for a series supposedly past its prime. 

We wouldn't be surprised if Modern Warfare 2's success is going to encourage Activision Blizzard to continue following the same business model in the future.
