Modern Warfare 3 tops 6.5 million units sold in the first day

More Than 6.5 Million Units of newly released shooter sold in 24 hours

Posted on
Activision has announced that its anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has had an estimated sell-through of more than $400 million and more than 6.5 million units in North America and the United Kingdom alone, in the first 24 hours of its release.

This marks the third consecutive year that the Call of Duty franchise has set day one launch records across all forms. Last year, in North America and the United Kingdom, Call of Duty: Black Ops had estimated day-one sell-through of $360 million and in 2009, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, set day-one records with estimated sell through of $310 million.

According to Microsoft, after just two days, the number of gamers playing simultaneously on Xbox Live set a new peak concurrency record.

"We believe the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the biggest entertainment launch of all time in any medium, and we achieved this record with sales from only two territories," said Bobby Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard, Inc.

Activision also announced this Veterans Day it donated $3 million to the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit, public benefit corporation that seeks to provide job placement and training for veterans.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is available now for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
