Modern Warfare 3 Hits $1 Billion In Sales

Posted on December 12, 2011 AT 07:47am

THE BUZZ: Activision has announced that Modern Warfare 3 has amassed $1 Billion in sales in just 16 days, beating the entertainment record previously held by Avatar.

The publisher revealed that Modern Warfare 3 is the first entertainment property to beat the 17 day record set by Avatar back in 2009. ”Engagement of our Call of Duty audience continues to rise around the world,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. ”Call of Duty as an entertainment franchise has made an indelible mark on popular culture and its broad and continued success is further validation that audiences increasingly value interactive experiences over passive experiences.”

EGM’s TAKE: It appears that nothing can stop the mighty Call of Duty train on it’s way to a legacy that will be remembered forever.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
