Activision ship 3 million Modern Warfare 2 discs to UK

Tuesday, 10th November 2009 15:11 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Activision has shipped a 3 million copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to the UK.

The publisher expects today’s UK launch to break records, hammering GTA IV’s five day UK record of over 900,000 units sold, and 3 million should be enough for the demand leading up to the holiday shopping extravaganza.

It’s not known how the numbers differentiate between PC, PS3 or Xbox but that’s still a ton of copies.

Hopefully, it will be enough for a salivating public.

More through MCV.

    How did MW2 become so big?

    It’s baffling to me.

    I think it’s because CoD4 was such a surprise hit, and then MW2 built on that support / hype. No doubt at all, this game will do easily do 15m+ when all is said and done. (Obviously not just on one platform)
