ActiBlizz: MW2 map sales to “catch up” with WaW map sales “in a couple weeks”
Modern Warfare 2 map packs are selling well, so well in fact sales may catch up with sales of CoD: World at War map packs in a couple weeks.
Speaking during Activision’s financial call to investors , COO Thomas Tippl said “Modern Warfare 2 maps haven’t “crossed with World at War yet”, but should “within a couple of weeks”.
As of February 2010, World at War map packs sold more than 8.5 million units, and at around $10 each, this means Activision has made approximately $100 million on map packs alone.
When asked, Tippl wouldn’t provide exact figures for each map pack released.
“We’ve received an incredible amount of benefit from our install base and reaction to the MW2 downloadable content,” added Kotick. “You will see that incorporated into Black Ops as well.
“We’ve created a multiplayer for it beyond what customers have ever seen, and it’s turning out to be one of the best products we have ever created.”
That’s the gist of the quote. We’ll have the full transcript for you tomorrow.
Black Ops releases worldwide on November 9 for PS3, 360, Wii, PC and DS.
